Permissions Impeeding Internet Browsing

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.security (More info?)

Users on a Windows 2000 Terminal Server are having trouble
browsing the Internet. For example, Successfully they can
browse to www.msn.com. They can not browse the "Sports By
Fox Sports" link located on this page. "Page can not be
displayed" is the error reported. It is a "Can not find
server or DNS" error. Users can successfully browse to a
bank's web site, but the bank transaction pop-up windows
are blank.

I suspect this is a permission's problem. Domain admins,
and users promoted to admins, can successfully browse
every page. Only users assigned to Domain User or User
groups can not browse.

This is a relatively new problem, first reported at the
end of July. At first the 6 hot fixes issued on 7/13/04
were suspected as causing this situation. Hot fixes
841873, 839645, 841872, 841873, 842526, and 840315 all
have been uninstalled. These uninstalls did not help, they
just made me more nervous.

There is no Internet filtering or firewall software
installed on the server.

    Are you deploying specific proxy or exclusions setting for users in that OU?

    If so check the HTTPS settings and that you are not excluding sites with the
    GPO that accompanies the users OU.

    Cheers
