Have a new Proliant DL380 G6 Server. 4 nics. Nics 1 - 3 are disabled.
Nic #4 is connected to an unmanaged switch, which is connected to a basic router. All PC's in the office are also connected to this switch. The PC's all have internet access. The server does not (from IE). The server can ping domain names outside the company on the internet no problem. It just can't connect to any websites via http or https. This includes visiting sites by IP address. There are no external firewalls in place. The server is running Symantec Endpoint (current version) with default settings/install.
The "status" in network connections shows the correctly connected domain, but the "Connectivity" shows "no internet access."
The Enhanced Security Configuration is not enabled.
I tried to update the driver on the nic, automatically from within the network settings of the control panel. The driver changed from what it originally was (which was: HP NC382i DP Multifunction Gigabit Server Adapter) to this one: Broadcom BCM5709c NetXtreme II GigE (NDIS VBD Client)
The above changes didn't allow internet access (but pings to DNS names still work).
I tried to reinstall the "HP NC382i DP Multifunction Gigabit Server Adapter" by downloading the TOPMOST NIC driver on this page: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3884083&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=3884082&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=4064#11395
This driver install failed indicating "you do not have the correct hardware for this driver..."
