I set up a W2K server VPN server for our work. The server works fine for a few days and then for unknown reasons, the public NIC card goes tits up. So I network into my computer (bypassing the VPN in question), Terminal Services into the VPN server, disable and re-enable the Public NIC and both VPN and this other program start to work! What would cause a NIC card to just stop responding - keeping in mind the local NIC card is functioning normally since I can TS into the box. Even pinging the server doesn't work until I disable and re-enable. Any ideas?
