    Intranet not working on workstations

    Hi

    Our Intranet has "suddenly" stopped working on our workstations (read last friday but no one thought to tell us).

    On Friday we had a knowledgeable chap fiddle with our Exchange server to set up https access, but that was a different server.

    IE7 has EduGeek.net set as its home page, but we keep getting page not displayed. If I go directly on the server and launch the home page it works.

    If I type http://servername/index.htm or http://ServerIPAddress/index.htm in IE7 on a workstation it works.

    Bypass proxy for local address in set to include ServerIPAddress and EduGeek.net

    I have restarted IIS and DNS as I initially though it could be a DNS issue.

    This is a CC3 network with a Smoothwall firewall.

    Hope someone can help.

    On the server and workstation (in turn), open up a command prompt and type:

    Code:
    ipconfig /all
    Does the DNS and Gateway match the servers?

    Automaticaly detect settings

    We have had a similar problem where the IE settings on connections LAN settings where set to Automatically detect settings. unticked it and it worked fine strange thing is that is all set by GP and it only affects a handful of children.

    Does the IIS server know to display the index.htm file ?
    There's a setting in there somewhere, because IIS likes to use default.asp files.

    If I type http://servername/index.htm or http://ServerIPAddress/index.htm in IE7 on a workstation it works.
    I assume http://intranet/index.html DOESNT work? - If so, can you ping from the workstation "intranet". - If yes, suggests IIS is having a moment.

    If no:
    Try http://intranet.yourdomain and see if this works.

    How'e you configuring the proxy? Is there anything in guardian's logs during the failure? That might give you a clue if intranet access is mistakenly being routed external.
