Been using remote access to my server earlier from a client machine fine earlier. After rebooting it to install updates I can no longer access the server files or remote access it. I can see the server listed on the network, but can't access it. When using the server directly however, I can see my client machines fine, so no problems with connectivity that end. Am using a static IP address for the server, so it's not an issue with IP.
when running Windows 7 diagnostics it returns saying "It is available but is not responding to connection attempts. A firewall or network security policy on the remote computer might be blocking the connection on port "file and print sharing resource"". But I haven't touched any firewall settings!
I really don't get it! It worked fine earlier, I really hope it's not some update from Microsoft that has caused this. I've not touched anything to do with remote access. I've been fiddling with a GPO for Windows update, but that's all - nothing to do with remote access.
Server is Windows Server 2008 R2, client is Windows 7 Pro (though I've tried using other XP clients and getting the same problem being unable to access the server).
