i'm running windows server 2003 as a NAT server, it has two NICs, one going to LAN, the other to the internet.

Trying to get dyndns update client to work. When I install and run it, after putting in my username / password it says "Unable to refresh host list. Please check your Internet Connection and try again".

I've verified internet is working. Also tried putting it on another computer on the network, and it worked fine. Just on this server it isn't working.

Figured it out. The problem was that my date/time on my computer was set incorrectly (set to 2006 instead of 2008).
