Hi,
I am having a problem with my website which is on IIS 6.0. When I login to my website internally(login from ie which is on my webserver), everything works fine. But sometimes, when I login to my website externally(login from ie any other computer), I am getting the following error:

The page cannot be displayed  
 
Explanation: The Web server connection was closed.
 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Try the following:

Refresh page: Search for the page again by clicking the Refresh button. The timeout may have occurred due to Internet congestion.
Check spelling: Check that you typed the Web page address correctly. The address may have been mistyped.
Access from a link: If there is a link to the page you are looking for, try accessing the page from that link.
Contact website: You may want to contact the website administrator to make sure the Web page still exists. You can do this by using the e-mail address or phone number listed on the website home page.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Technical Information (for support personnel)

Error Code 64: Host not available
Background: The connection to the Web server was lost.
 

I was wondering if somebody else has this problem before. Thank you. (I have tried to set EnablePMTUDiscovery bit to 1, it didn't help.)

One of our tech's logged into the BIOS and changed something (he doesn't remember what), and we haven't had the problem since.
