I have a Windows XP sp3 PC in a remote site that cannot access a Suse Linux server using Internet Explorer. It can access other in-house and external servers fine. The problem PC can access MS 2003 SBS server on the same network as the Linux server. Other PCs on the remote network can access Linux server without any problems.
The Suse Linux server runs a 3rd party application which uses Java and Oracle.
The browser shortcut is http://192.168.19.128:7778/forms/frmservlet?config=abc
I can ping the server from the PC fine but when I connect using the shortcut IE just shows Website found, waiting for reply but never gets anywhere!
I have tried reverting to IE 6 and 7 in desperation.
I have no proxy servers in play and I have disabled firewall on PC.
I have changed the IP address on the PC thinking that something along the route was "hanging" onto a old session or something.
I also tried Chrome and get the same response.
Ping, Tracert, Route commands don't show anything strange.
Also I have run full AV and Malware scan. I have also inactivated AV in case it was blocking something.
Needless to say this was working fine before!! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
