SBS 2008 / 2011 have firewalls on them now - have you opened up the firewall on the server and the clients?
Port 1433 TCP and 1434 UDP.

Often times the firewall will be controlled via group policies. You may have to change your group policy for this to work on the server itself. Reboot is recommended after you change the Group Policy.
