IP address of the client has been rejected

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)
