Temporary loss of pop3 email and ftp connection RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi


    I support a 2 user network used by a web developer. They have 2 hp machines running win XP. One machine uses Outlook 2000 and the other Outlook Express. Both machines connected via a Netgear router to a virgin media broadband modem. One machine has norton int sec 2008 and the other 2009.


    Either machine can all of a sudden loose connection to ftp sites and will fail on receiving email (collected from multiple pop3 boxes on both machines). The other machine will continue with no issue. A re-boot may fix but also waiting between 10-20 mins will also see the failed system rectify itself! The failed machine can still connect to sites like bbc.co.uk all the time.


    Can anybody suggest what may be happening and advise accordingly please?
