I am not sure if it was a recent patch but when ePO scheduled ppull goes off it stopped connecting. When I go to any of these sites
I see "Inernet Explorer cannot display the webpage.". We did open the firewall to get to that specific address. it only happens in Windows 2008R2 fully patched. Did something change on McAfee side? We had to resort to the other method of updating under server settings, using http://update.nai.com. We are currently running 4.6.1 build 1192.
Both ftp sites are fine (just checked) and have not changed on the McAfee side. The fact that only Win2k8R2 is affected for you would also seem to back that up.
If even Internet Explorer cannot open the ftp sites for you, it's not the product causing the blockage.
