    Hi mgoudy,

    do you have any firewalls enabled? whats your "ipconfig /all" show?

    standalone machine or part of a domain? can you give some more detail on your setup

    It is part of a domain, there is an Astaro Gateway we use for filtering.  Everything points to the Server as far as the ipconfig.
    The settings are the same as all the other computers on our network.

    ok try a quick ipconfig /flushdns

    and then try a winsock fix

    Assisted Solution

    Double check that the dns ip in the workstation that won't is that of the domain controller.
