    I have a problem with not being able to reach Yahoo.com, MSN.com, and other
    sites on my 2003 SB Server and several workstations. On the server
    particularly, it forwards to AnswerFerret.com. On the others, it attempts to
    go to www.yahoo.com.net, then goes to the standard IE 'Page Cannot Be
    Displayed'. The only thing that has changed is that we went to in-house
    e-mail with Exchange 2003 that was built in.

    What caused this, and what can I do to fix it? Any info helps!

    YES. Most other sites are accessible. I can even ping yahoo.com and get
    their IP's.

    I realize this is an elementary question, but how do I 'check the DNS
    status' in nslookup? Am I checking the DNS status of my server, or of
    Yahoo.com?

  4. I realize this is an elementary question, but how do I 'check the DNS
    In command line type nslookup and try to resolve an internet name thru it.
    If it executes without any errors, than your problem is not in your DNS.
    BTW, on start, nslookup shows if there is a problem in the connecting to
    your DNS.
