I'm an administrator of a Windows SBS Premium 2003 server. Partly as a test, I've updated my remote laptop to Microsoft XP Home SP2.

Previously, after connecting to the server using a VPN ("Connect to Small Business Server"), I could update my Outlook using the server's Exchange. I still can.

Previously, after connecting, I could access <companyname>server, now I cannot.

Does anyone know what I can do to correct this problem?

The error message says:

The Web server you are attempting to reach has a list of IP addresses that are not allowed to access the Web site, and the IP address of your browsing computer is on this list.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please try the following:

Contact the Web site administrator if you believe you should be able to view this directory or page.
HTTP Error 403.6 - Forbidden: IP address of the client has been rejected.
Internet Information Services (IIS)

Technical Information (for support personnel)

Go to Microsoft Product Support Services and perform a title search for the words HTTP and 403.
Open IIS Help, which is accessible in IIS Manager (inetmgr), and search for topics titled About Security, Limiting Access by IP Address, IP Address Access Restrictions, and About Custom Error Messages.
