I have an issue with a WIN 2008 R2 Domain Controller (PDC, GC) running CA. I can get the URL web link to work okay when users are outside the nework but from the inside it will not load the page. It comes up with page or link not found. On a Windows 7 Machine it works most of the time. I did apply the hotfix to SRV 2003 and XP and it will work for a few days and then come up with the message page not found.

Your help is greatly appreciated. Nelson

Are you using the same URL from outside as you are using from inside the network?

What if you browse to just http://servername

The public address and the private address are different. Http://server name takes me to the default IIS7 page.

I access the cert page by going to https://servername.local/certsrv/default.asp (inside)

Outside

https://servername.com/certsrv/default.asp

Thanks. Nelson

Actually, I figure it out. I decided to use the public address on the inside and it works fine. I also used the internal IP and it now works. I think also part of the issue was the DC1 NETLOGON service was paused... hence users could not communicate to DC1. I re-enabled the NETLOGON service and it work just fine.

Thanks for your help.
