After creating then accessing Excel hyperlink I get a consistent error. What is the cause?

Current Environment:

Excel 2013
Mozilla (default browser)

The same hyperlink works in Mozilla just fine.  But from within  excel I receive this error:

cannot locate the internet server or proxy server

I can I salvage this.

It would be nice to get at least some points for this as I took your file and gave you independent verification that it worked on other machines.  I also suggested that it may be something to do with security settings, which proved to be the case.

Perhaps your link is not quite right in Excel.  Does it start with http://  ?  It would help if you could post your sheet so we can see what's going on.

Thanks

This works fine for me in Excel 2007 with Chrome, although it complains about the certificate for the second link.  I don't really have any other suggestions, unless it's something related to your Trust Center settings

After allowing an excel rule on my outbound side firewall I was able to open the link normally.
