Hi,

I have a Microsoft server 2008 installed on my Dell PowerEdge 2950.

The internet was working fine in the first few weeks but when I disable Internet Explorer Enhanced Security, I was unable to browse.

I could still ping to 8.8.8.8.

I would appreciate if anyone can help.

Thanks

Sounds like a DNS issue. Can you ping google.com?

I would re-enable and see if it works. Perhaps you disabled something else?

Hello

Did you try firefox instead IE? Or better the portable version of firefox. If works the problem is IE configuration, if not, you have dns/firewall/routing problems

Hi,

I have tried the tracert commands and it can successfully trace the connection.

I have not tried a portable version yet but I will do that now.

Shooting in the dark, but is there any chance you had been using a web proxy before you disabled the Enhanced Security, and that setting was lost when the change was made?

Right looks like the option automatically detect settings was ticked which somehow blocked the connection.

Now that I have unchecked the option, my internet explorer is working.

thank you all who participated in this question.

I ran a trial and error option and unchecked the automatically detect settings to see if this would fix the solution and it did.
