Windows 2008 Local Connections only

We had a Windows 2008 server in one of our labs that was setup by someone else and it was not allowing connections to the Internet.  But we could remote to it and connect to it’s shares.  Upon checking here is what I found:

1. Under Network Connections the connectivity showed Local only

2. Properties for the NIC were configured correctly

3. Running ipconfig from a command prompt shows the default gateway was

My steps to fix:

1. Open a command prompt with Admin rights

2. route delete

3. open the properties for your NIC and enter the correct defaut gateway.

That’s was all it took to give the system access to the Internet.
