Windows 2000 Server Internet Access Issue

By jjewell ·

I have a new customer who has a Windows 2000 Server SP4 machine running as a primary domain controller, Exchange 2000 server, IIS server, and DNS server. Recently, I am told, the server is unable to properly browse the Internet through Internet Explorer. We can open sites in the local network and we can open https:// sites out on the Internet, but no unsecure web sites. We are able to ping, ftp, telnet, and tracert from this machine. Other servers and workstations in the local network can browse the Internet with no problem. All other functions of the server are working fine (i.e. mail, incoming web, DNS). We currently have done the following to no avail:

* Reset all IE settings to defaults.
* Reinstalled IE.
* Loaded Firefox browser, which has the same internet access problems.
* Ensured that there are no viruses, spyware, or browser hijacks running on this machine.
* Ensured there are no locally installed firewalls loaded blocking access.
* Ensured that there are no policies on their Sonicwall firewall preventing access.
* Added a Sonicwall firewall policy that explicitly gave full Internet access to this machine.

Any assistance in this issue would be appreciated.

Maybe is there no simple answer to such a complex situation, but you should maybe look at certificates rules wich can explain the https:// working and not the http://.
My 2 cents...
