It's 2 o'clock in the morning. I'm tired, I'm frustrated and I hate all that is Microsoft more than ever.
Few hours ago there was a power surge. After the power was all back, my server started, I could ping it, but that was pretty much it. Nothing else worked.
I had to get a monitor at one past midnight to diagnose.
Long story short (it's 2 o'clock remember?) it came out that RRAS (Routing and remote access services) somehow started itself up to such an extent as to f*ck up my firewall, so my server went dead (network wise) - the ipnat.sys issue - very common it would seem.
After an hour of trial and error I fixed it using Safe Mode (Stopping the Firewall, starting RRAS, stopping RRAS, starting the Firewall, and the ICS afterwards). Fortunately neither the ICS, nor the Firewall lost their settings.
And..... I have to get up after three hour to drive to Greece.
I hate you microsoft software..
