I have done a search and cannot find information on a problem I am having with my server, so here it goes:
I hired a tech to set up my server and I know am having second thoughts on their abilities, hence I am here trying to figure out the problem myself.
I have a dell server with 2003 Server Operating System, well about a week ago the Server constantly is downloading and sending information, that is eating all my bandwidth (my desktops will not operate or take extended amounts of time to download). I have tried to go into the Windows Security and find out what the problem is and this is the message I get: "Windows Firewall cannot run because another program is running that might use the network address translation component (Ipnat.sys)"
I asked around and someone told me that it may be a rogue virus, the problem is I am new too servers and would like to see if anyone can pinpoint what my problem is. I am worried that all my data is being compromised, I specifically told the Tech to set it up so that no one is able to hack or get into this server because it is used for mostly remote access from around the world. I was repeatedly told by the tech's that there is no way I would get viruses or hacked as they reassured me that it was set up so this type of incident would not happen, but it did my greatest fear!
Any help or direction would be appreciated. I think its time for me to learn more about my server than trusting a reputable company, thanks again.
