Able to ping domain but not browse to them
Posted on 2012-08-29
Server: Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard (SP1)
We are unable to browse websites from this server, we either get a "The address is not valid" error or "Page cannot be displayed"
We can ping the same domain (i.e. google.ca) properly.
DNS server is currently pointing to the Domain Controller (offsite location), secondary DNS is set to the router/firewall locally in the office. VPN is setup between this office to the offsite location, running perfectly fine.
What we've done so far:
Check for windows updates - all updated
Ran malware/virus scan - no threats/infections
checked host file - ok, no unknown entries
Reboot usually fixes it, but then after a few days, it just comes back to the same issue.
Could this be an issue with server 2008 itself?
Any help would be appreciated.
