Hi all,

I have an SBS server 2003 SP1.

no probs until Friday last week. Open up browser on the server itself and i get cannot display page - dns error. Can access internet etc etc from pcs on network no problem. Antivirus cant update on server as it cant locate update server. I can ping www.google.co.za etc - just not browse?

Ran ICW - dont see any new errors - anything else i should be looking at?

Thank
Sean
