Is the simple firewall rejecting ICMP?  Nessus and Retina won't continue
probing a node if you have the ICMP check (or ping host) flag set and it
doesn't get a response.

Subject: Interesting challenge

We are doing a pen test for a client and have run into a interesting
situation. The client has a server running IIS and Exchange we can get to
through a browser but when we try to run Nessus or Eeye Retina against it,
neither product can find the server. The client is not running any IDS
system has a simple firewall. A port scan revels no open port though port
is open since the server is serving pages.
