Hi
On our Intranet some users are getting the error

"Internet Explorer cannot download x.doc from intranetserver.
Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site.
The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found.
Please try again later."

This happens when they try to click on a link to word documents.
The strange things is that it's works fine for most people but not for a certain few.

I looked at this ...

but content expires after 30 days so it should be ok.

thanks

Sure sounds like a permissions kind of issue/access level issue since only a few are impacted.  Have you compared settings for the users who can vs. can't access?  Same Browser and update levels?

One of the typical problems I have experienced is when you have to move a web server from one hosting site to another. You normally prepare all on the new host, transfer the site, change DNS and cross your fingers hoping all will be ok on new server…
