  • It sounds like there is a issue with IP Addressing on the server or your network resolving the server name to the IP Address. I suggest configuring your home server with a Static IP address and making sure you can connect to it issuing the static address and the name of the server.

    It could be your router or switch that is causing the issue, especially
    if you're having problems accessing the server from outside of your
    network (which you haven't mentioned).
     
    After taking care of the the solutions that Daniel suggested, try
    powering off all of the computers in your network (including the server
    and anything else that's connected directly to the router/modem/switch)
    and unplugging your router/modem/switch for about 30 seconds. After you
    plug the router/modem/switch back in, power the server on first, then
    anything else with a static IP address, and finally anything else that
    you have connected. This should prevent conflicts with IP addresses,
    and hopefully resolve the problem (possibly temporarily or permanently).
     
    If this does fix the problem, and it returns at a later point in time,
    then you may want to consider the router to be the problem. Otherwise,
    it could just be an intermittent issue.
     
    I specified router/modem/switch, because I don't know whether you have a
    modem that provides routing, or a router or switch that connects the
    devices together. So, whichever you have, that will be what you want to
    unplug (or you can unplug them all. Just make sure you plug the modem
    in before the router or switch).
     
    Hope this helps, and have a great day:)
    Patrick.

  • Also, Have a look at the state of the IPSEC service. See what is happening there.
