Cannot find server or DNS Error
Posted on 2003-02-25
Hey all, seemingly easy question, but it has me stumped.
I can't access some web pages (seems to be random except for my "inbox" in hotmail..everything but inbox i can take).
We are on a network here at work, everyone else has no problems. At random times i get this error...enough that it is 1 out of every 6 pages( approx). I can ping, but even if i put on the ip address in IE 6 it still displays the error. I have emptied my cookies and temp files. The problem seems to be intermitent because one day or hour i will be able to access the page and other times i will not(my hotmail inbox, it is very rare that i will be able to access it...mabey once a week max...trying at least 10 times a day). My settings have not changed, i do not seem to have a virus or trojan. The pages that i am trying to access do not neccesarily have any secured pages(some do and some don't). My TLS is off (in options/advanced). Again, no one else on the network has this problem. We are all on windows 2000 and i am the network admin, so technically, i am the only one installing updates on the system.
This needs to be solved fast (and i am only here a few times a week, otherwise i am on the road) so i am allocating many point to this...
Note: like i said, it goes away then comes back, so i will need at least 2 days of testing to see if the error is actually fixed.
