I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction of where to look for a solution to a problem we are currently having. We are upgrading one of our servers from 2003 to 2008 R2. Previously we were able to dial Windows XP client machines from the 2003 server and ping and SQL Server replicate between the two but with Server 2008 R2, the 2008 R2 server can ping and connect the XP machine, but the XP machine cannot ping or replicate back the other way. We've heard that 2008 R2 have disabled this feature, but I would like a 3rd opinion.
Thanks for that. We have tried disabling the firewall on both the client WinXP machine and the Windows 2008 R2 server, but the ping and SQL Server replication fails (on trying to connect back to the server).
I'll have to check with the systems guy about the antivirus install, but I think we had none for the time being.
I'm no network engineer, but it's like the XP machine has no gateway to tell it how to find its way back to the server.
Has anyone got a setup of Server 2008 R2 and WinXP machines to talk to each over over Dial Up RRAS?
