DNS Fail in IE when browsing to a internal web address

Hello,

I have a problem where I have a user browsing to a internal web address and ie is showing an error of DNS Fail.  We are able to ping the server that the IIS instance is running on but this message keeps coming up when browsing via URL.  Not sure what the problem could be.  And, this is not happening to everyone either...

Thanks in advance for any help.

Jim

Please run IPCONFIG /ALL and verify the settings.

Settings look find and they can ping the server by name and IP where IIS is located.

Are there any HOSTS entries on the machine?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

OK, and the URL contains the DNS name in fully qualified domain name format?  And you also pinged that?  How aboout firewall settings?

Is the IE showing local intranet or trusted site on the bottom line?

the url is http:\\ctldeveloper\ctlreports\reports.application where ctldeveloper is the servername.

You appear to have your slashes the wrong way around is that a type fault??

Anyway I was going to suggest that you check your proxy settings. If you are using a proxy server and have not excluded the internal address(es) you will get that error, happens to me all the time!

I will look at that also.  Yes, typed the slashes wrong.

Just to verify, if you ping ctldeveloper you get a response and it is the IP address of the web server?
