    We are unable to connect to one specific web site, however others outside of our office can connect to this site without any trouble. We are running MS windows 2003 server and all the workstations are running firefox. Most workstations are running XP, but we have 2 that are running vista. The site we cannot connect to is www,passportamerica.com. Someone suggested that it might be a proxy server issue. I'm not experienced enough to know anything about proxy servers. Any help would be appreciated.

    First source of help for an office networking problem is your company's IT department. Maybe somebody doesn't want you thinking about camping during work hours. :)

    Replace http://www.passportamerica.com with http://206.251.161.232.

    If you can get there, the problem is with your DNS server. By the way, I hope you are using a period after "www", rather than the comma in your message.

    P.S. Good one TerrryNet!!!

    We rebooted the dns server yesterday. I'm still having problems with the www.passportamerica.com url, but we can get to the site using the ip address. At least that solves the problem of getting to that site. BTW that is a sister site or ours, that's why we need to view what is on there everyday. Also, unfortunately I am the it department, but my expertise is programming.
