I'm running release 5 of Longhorn and I'm having a little trouble. The trouble is network related. I have a Windows 2003 Server network set-up with routing and remote access enabled. I can ping the server I can even remote desktop into it which I currently am. But I cannot browse the network or go any farther than the server. It won't ping my ISP DNS Server. Its really pissing me off. I can surf the net just fine when I hook my cable modem up to it directly. Any ideas? I know its a prerelease with bugs, but it would be nice is there's a fix. Thanks a alot.....

sounds to me like you have personal firewall or dns configuration issues.

you can ping the server, but not the isp dns? :?

what are the server and longhorn IP configurations?

Thats exacly what I feel is the issue. But I have tried everyting I can think of to disable any kind of firewall or security issues. The server is a pretty basic configuration. I am using NAT with RAS in order to pretty much forward traffic through my network. I have no hint of security on it (That doesn't mean attack it, lol :lol: ) This configuration worked with XP. All systems are on the same subnet and are pointed to the server as a gateway (obviously). The client is set up with my server as a DNS primary and my ISP as the backup. Reversing them is no help. My server is set to forward DNS queries onto my ISP. I know everything is up and operable, because everyone else on my network is good to go. Its Longhorn related. I'm at a loss. Like I said when hooked directly to the Cable Modem it works. :cry: What's up? Probably a bug I can't work around but seems like something simple I'm overlooking..... Thanks :)

Try disabling DNS and static IP, let it get the info from the DHCP server.

Have you joined the Domain? Make sure your client computer is part of the Domain.

Yea, I've tried that. Dead end as well. I have many domains on my network with my users. The server will resolve for anyone on the internal side of my network. But I am joined to the same domain the server is on.

Edit: It does get a valid address and seems to be configured correctly when tried...

WTF: This is pissing me off. I can't even ping to the outside ip of my server. This makes no sense. It's acting to me like my server is blocking it. How could that be?

I found this thread at another board that may be beneficial to you. It seems directly related to your problem. There's quite a bit of discussion about it and perhaps some things for you to try. And it's just from a couple weeks ago so it should be relevent to your release:

You're very welcome. Good luck with it, and keep us informed of how things go with Longhorn.

P.S. the Google search I used to find that was: "longhorn networking"
*smiles -- I know you've speant hours on it, because I watched you most of the afternoon working on it and Google gave you the answer in .34 seconds. *lol Don't you hate it when that happens?

simpleminded -- next time, please only post your question in 1 thread.
crossposting and posting multiple times is not going to get your question
answered any faster.
