Server IP address cannot see Internet
Posted on 2005-04-12
I have two servers that all of a sudden cannot communicate on the Internet. I've tested the internal DNS by pinging computer names and other IP's of other servers and thats fine.
When you go to browse the internet IE just hangs and cannot find any addresses or IPs. My default gateway is setup correctly, I can also ping it. I've also flushed the ARP cache of the firewall\router.
Now the interesting thing is if I change the IP address of the servers having the problem, then it's goes out on the internet fine. Once I change it back I have the same problem. For obvious reasons I don't really want to have to change the server IP addresses.
Why does this happen ? How can I solve it ?
