is about ePO 3.5 functional since ~2006, in Q4.2008 fully updated to patch 6 & cma 3.6 & driving VSE8.5 succesfully after upgrading VSE8.0 clients.
case is that console worked perfect from my (admin) laptop and from the server as well then suddendly last week, while still working ok from server, on laptop gives the error: cannot access server. the server may be down or you may have specified an incorrect HTTP port
port is 8084, works from server and of course i'm using the same ceredentials from long time.
from laptop i can still login to reporting - epo databases on the same port 8084 with ePO authentication, same user/psw as before on the ePO server.
in the last two weeks had those changes on my laptop: - have installed two office 2007 components over existing office 2003 then - my IE6 started to die, did upgrade to IE7, patches came automatically next day - IE7 started to die and found / fixed the bug due to a .dll conflict between 2003/2007 - everything is ok now except ePO server console access
did a lot of searches but no clue so far.
today's console .log:

RE: ePO 3.5 console - suddendly- cannot access server
check your windows services, and see if the McAfee EPO services are started. there should be 3 specific services for the EPO server.
I had this issue a few months ago after a SQL server change which caused some problems, and somehow led to 2 of the services not starting automatically, due to dependencie issues. If I had to guess it sounds like the Apache service isn't started (Titled McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator 3.5 Server or something like that)
[Edit] Seems I misread, thought you were having issues on both server and your laptop...
