goodane1 -> ISA 2004: (25.Jan.2011 10:46:46 AM)

Hi All,

I am having a problem at a clients site with them not being able to access

This problem only started last week and nothing has been changed on the system.

They are running SBS 2003 with ISA 2004.

When trying to access they get the following error:

Network Access Message: The page cannot be displayed

Explanation: The request timed out before the page could be retrieved.

Try the following:
Refresh page: Search for the page again by clicking the Refresh button. The timeout may have occurred due to Internet congestion.
Check spelling: Check that you typed the Web page address correctly. The address may have been mistyped.
Contact website: You may want to contact the website administrator to make sure the Web page still exists. You can do this by using the e-mail address or phone number listed on the website home page.
If you are still not able to view the requested page, try contacting your administrator or Helpdesk.

Technical Information (for support personnel)
Error Code 10060: Connection timeout
Background: The gateway could not receive a timely response from the website you are trying to access. This might indicate that the network is congested, or that the website is experiencing technical difficulties.

There is nothing in the ISA logs blocking access to this website and the logs show near enough the same as the above message.

I have done a tracert to from the server and it seems to miss the last hop:

over a maximum of 30 hops:

this is from the ISA server aswell as client machines.

SP3 is installed..

How is DNS configured on this Domain for your ISA Internal NIC? From your trace it appears that something is definitely amiss in the route path but based on your .local FQDN I would question that DNS is not configured correctly to forward?

Is the ISA compression filter enabled?


goodane1 -> RE: ISA 2004: (26.Jan.2011 4:22:29 AM)


DNS has to be configured correctly as this only effects, no other websites..

HTTP compression is not enabled..


Rotorblade -> RE: ISA 2004: (26.Jan.2011 8:35:28 AM)

I would turn the compression filter on.

"199 ms [] "

Well possibly so but with seeing that your troubled trace is dying with a PTR lookup on an invalid domain I would probably at least take another look…….. There are such things as bad DNS forwarders – that is if your .local domain is configured as such and not a “.” Root server?
