Windows 2003 DNS - IE - problem

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I have a strange problem.  I have a Windows 2003 DC.  It runs AD and DNS.  From a command prompt I can ping google.com or other sites and get a valid IP response..thats good.  But when I open up IE and put in google.com or another site it says it "Cant Display the web page".  Even when I put in the ip address in the url bar it cant display the web page.  However, if I enter https://server1.myfdomaino.owa it will open OWA.  So it almost feels like a port 80 issue.  I have made sure the firwall is off and poked around did an nslookup and got the results back as expected.   I dont recall anything been changed on the server in the past 3 months except applying the regular patches.  Any clues?
