Server remotely visible but cant get live domain or see www.microsoft.com RRS feed

  • Question

  • This is strange. I set up friend's remote access to his WHS the other day and all went fine. I've come to do the same to mine and cant get a domain, it wont log on to Windows Live (I get 'unknown error' after a while). All remote acess to my WHS is fine, and I can open it remotely, logging on to it. Strangley though, it I use the WHS IE8 to access web sites, I can get at www.google.co.uk (although I get a warning) but I CANT access www.microsoft.com - one of my 'trusted' sites.

    Can anyone help please?

  • Hi Brian,

    can you access microsoft.com sites from any client computer?
    And what for a warning do you get accessing google?

    I would assume, that you got a malware infection either on your server or the router ...
    Or eventually you have a misconfiguration DNS related - what is the output of the command ipconfig /all issued in the command prompt on your server?

    Best greetings from Germany
