Windows Server 2008 not accepting incoming IP connections

I have a legacy Windows 2008 R2 server which I have just virtualised (ESXi 6.7). I assigned a static IP address to it, but got an odd message warning me about multiple gateways. Since I was entering the address of the only gateway on my LAN I ignored the message and continued.
The server now seems to have full LAN and internet access, but does not accept any incoming traffic from other devices on the LAN. Ping requests time out. I have tried completely disabling the firewall, but it hasn't helped. ipconfig/all output is shown below. Any idea what the problem might be?

    Hi,

    It seems a network route issue.

    Try to launch the command to check the network route to reach the target IP:

    tracert targetIP
