Moderators: Needs to be moved to ePO section to get better exposure
Generally ePO doesn't interfere with any internet settings during it's installation.
How is internet configured with in your organisation. Is it direct access, firewalled, proxyed?
I would go back and check your network adapater settings, default gateway and browser proxy settings.
Was ePO the only software installed? Did any of the software ePO manages get installed afterwards?
Can you ping from the command line any of the internet addresses you can't browse to?
Can you connect to any other security vendors websites e.g. Symantec, Kaspersky, etc?
It's a long shot....but denied access to security sites like Microsoft, McAfee is the symptom of some virus infections.
Have a look at c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts and see if there's anything in it.
Are you getting any error messages such as 404, 500, 501 etc in your browser?
If you're getting the 'vanilla' unable to open the website requested try this:
1. From your ePO server , open Command Prompt (cmd.exe) and type "nslookup www.microsoft.com"
2. From a machine that CAN connect to Microsoft's website, do the same.
3. Compare the two responses and see if the IP Addresses match and the DNS Server's match.
With Server 2003, especially SBS, the DNS is set to point to itself and then forward requests on. Perhaps the settings are somehow incorrect and you could easily adjust them to the correct settings.
