Can't access some websites -- same domain different subdomain

Q: Can't access some websites -- same domain different subdomain

There are some Japanese flash game websites on a domain called web.fc2.com. I can access some but not others, getting a timeout error.

I can't get to ancho.web.fc2.com and detarou.web.fc2.com . I can get to pi3141592c147.web.fc2.com and yoinouchi.web.fc2.com . I've pinged all four and get very similar results - I know 'similar' is not 'exact' but I am not techy enough to read/understand ping results.

A possibly relevant pair of messages I get from pinging via dnsstuff.com are
- The destination appears to block unwanted UDP packets.
- There appears to be a firewall at <ip address> (hop 1) that blocks unwanted TCP packets.

Both my windows xp and my ubuntu box have the same problem, so it's not a hosts file issue or a system based blocking software. Might be my router?

Thank you...

Preferred Solution: Can't access some websites -- same domain different subdomain

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm at the "manage dns settings" at network solutions and I see where I can create a subdomain, but it requires that a subdomain point to a numeric IP... I would like my subdomain "lostandfound.mervisdiamond.com" to point to "mervisdiamond.com/found" What numeric IP should I use in this case? Clearly I can't use the generic IP for the site.

Alternatively, I have no problem with the entire Lost and Found actually hosted at the subdomain. In this case how can I move the directory of code to the subdomain, and not in the folder mervisdiamond.com/found

This is my first time posting here and I would really appreciate the help. Thanks!

Maybe some one knows the answer.

Following problem i have with a windows server 2003 and xp clients

Computers who are in the domain(for example: ws01.domain.local cannot access some websites,like microsoft.com etc. (also slow internet)
If i take a brand new laptop that is not in the domain yet,(workgroup) and put it in the network with a cable, i can access the site microsoft.com
We have a netscreen 5GT and windows server 2003 with XP clients.
You have any idea what can be the problem?


A:Cannot access some internet websites while computer is in the domain

Are you managing the Internet connection with the server? If so, that's probably the difference. Another thing might be group policies established by the server.

What happens if you try to ping a non-working site from a domain connected machine? Don't use microsoft.com, they don't respond to pings.

i have changed the domain of the computer (from say old.net to new.net).
there is a folder shared on another machine on old.net domain. the user X was able to access it. aftter changing his domain from old.net to new.net he no longer can access that shared folder.
User X has working credentials for both domains.

on accessing it it asks for credentials. upon entering his correct user name in the format (old.net\X) he is not able to access it.

i had exactly same setup with another user Y and he was able to access data .

is there anything that i am missing ?

also accessing that folder first time asked for credentials but now it doesnt asks .. why ? there is nothign in credentials manager.


A:cannot access shared folder after changing domain with old domain cred


Have you removed/re-added the User's credentials (from the PC with shared folder) with the new domain name?
Also, make sure that the shared folder has Everyone permission in the Security Tab.

Can I access a network share on the domain with a non-domain computer? I would connect the computer directly to the corporate network. 
For what reasons could this be blocked (firewall? policy? settings on server-side?) and what configuration is needed to make sure it is possible to access a network share with a non-domain computer?

I have a domain joined windows 7pro (64bit) not able to connect to shared folder on a non domain joined pc with windows 7pro (32bit). Only public folders are accessible. I get a do not have permission message, I tried adding the domain\user to share permissions but domain is not recognized on the non domain-joined pc.

Does my domain admin have access to the homegroup and the shared folders on the home pc?

What are my options for access to a non public secure folder on the non domain pc from the domain joined pc.

Sorry for the awkward description, don't know how else to describe the situation.

my apologies if these questions were addressed elsewhere, I could not find any relevant threads.


A:Domain joined pc, does domain admin have access to my homegroup

Hi Takatso, welcome to sevenforums. As I read you post, it looks like you are logged into your domain joined PC as a domain user is this correct? If so, your PC will be treated as acting as a part of the domain. If you then try and connect to another pc at home, there will be a problem as your home pc is not recognised by the domain pc as part of the domain. You should set yourself up a user account on the domain pc whilst it is NOT connected to the domain, login to the new account whilst not on the domain and then try sharing the folders with the non-domain pc.

No, your does not have access on the home computer as they are part of the domain and not the homegroup.

If you have credentials for the company.com, you should have no problem connecting to the WiFi and utilizing available resources. That would all depend on the permissions and setup of the wireless, however.

So basically on my Toshiba laptop running Windows 7, I can't use domain names such as: google.com to go to the website. All I can use is the IP Address of the domain, such as: That IP Address opens google.com. So, I was wondering if anyone here could be able to give me a solution to my problem.

A:DNS Issue - Can't use domain names for websites only the IP Address

This link should explain how to look up and change, if necessary, your DNS servers. Also it's possible your ISP's DNS servers may be down. Also you can try flushing the dns cache. A google of "flush windows dns cache" should find the command.

Ive had this problem before and I know its no good. Last time however I had to format my whole computer because I didnt have any time to take it off and my internet providor forced me to format my computer or not get the internet. If it happens again they'll cut my internet permanently.

So to my Problem: Whenever I try to access Microsoft of a antivirus website (AVG, norton, malwarebytes.org, etc.), I get a a "the page cannot be viewed" message.

It was working this afternoon when I was trying to download IE6 onto my computer when it said I need to install SP3 for XP and install all these automatic updates. I however cancelled this an hour later because it was taking very long and I had time constraints. and I tried a few hours later and it didnt work.

Im running XP with SP2 and I have MBAM on my computer and also AVG but I dont think its working properly (i.e. it doesnt come up on the system tray)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi, I hope I have posted this in the right forum, apologies if I haven't. Here is the problem I'm having.I bought a HP ENVY 17t just over a month ago. For the first week, 10 days, everything was fine, I have a good internet connection with TWC and the wireless modem/router I got was perfect.Then I started to notice that I could not access some of my usual websites. I would type in the URL press enter then wait, and wait..... as opposed to just a day or so previously when I reached tte site instantly. Some of the sites would eventually, after a minute or so, some longer, appear, but then not completely, the graphics (pictures) were missing, links on the side of the pages were not there.Initially I had thought that it was a problem with my internet connection so I called TWC. They checked at their end and then checked the modem/router, and pronounced that there was no problem with the internet connection. And sure enough, when I tried to download files from the office, I had no problems at all. I could access the servers and download large files without a problem, as fast as I did before the problem started.I then called TP-Link. My Modem router is a TP-Link Archer CR700. I thought that there might be some kind of intermittent problem. They too checked everything with the modem, had me run some tests, and while the modem worked perfectly, I still could not access an ever increasing number of websites.Just on a hunch I went online with my Samsung tablet, and I had absolutely no ...

Hi all,

I have run into an issue that I just can't seem to figure out. I will explain in detail below.
Thanks in advance for any productive suggestions or tips.

I am currently working for a company that have 5 existing websites. They changed the systems and now all the website files exist on cloud server hosted by Microsoft Azure.
The domain names were bought from www.cheapdomains.com.au. I have set up the A records on the registrars account and added the server names.
Now, I am told that I need to set up zones and www A records with the DNS management service.
These were my only instructions on how to accomplish this.

No they are Windows 2012 r2 Servers. So you need to start the DNS Management Service and create the zones.

Primary Zone for DLMVM1 and Secondary Zone DLMVM2.

You will also need to create www A records for the domains.

Then create websites in IIS on DLMVM1 including the http bindings.

Each 5 websites already have domain names associated with them.
I was told that you could link more domain names to certain websites. I am very new to all this so any and all information of relevance would be of help.

Thanks in advance

I've got a Windows domain with multiple workstations on it. On all workstations connected to the domain, when browsing to certain sites, the site loads correctly, and then is redirected to a generic search site that appears to host malware. The behavior is the same with Internet Explorer and Firefox. On a laptop connected to the domain, I removed it from the domain, and connected to the internet using wifi tethering on my smart phone. When I did that, the sites loaded correctly. I also changed the DNS server on one of the workstations to Google's, and that did nothing to help the problem.

These are the sites that are currently loading wrong, and what they redirect to:

Ok, so I have been searching google for an easy walk through on how to block sites such as MySpace, Youtube, Facebook and other related sites where my father's employees like to waste company time on. **HOWEVER** After reading, blocking sites through IE's block list and adding domains with IP's seem to have easy work arounds compared to IPSEC/Group Policy.

This route allows for all of xxxxx.myspace.com's (subnets) from being accessed as apposed to finding them all out and entering the domain/subnet combos individually in the host file. So if ANYONE has seen a very easy walkthrough (cause the ones i have seen are win 2000 and/or are vague and more complicated than required, I would greatly appreciate it.

I am going to continue to search the web, and if I find something i'll post just in case this topic benefits others. I'm determined to solve this issue!!!

If I disable "search from address bar" in IE9, attempting to visit http://uncg.edu results in a 404 error. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, however, works fine. I can omit the subdomain from some websites (such as http://sevenforums.com), but others simply won't allow me to. Also, http://uncg.edu simply opens a search engine if I have "search from address bar" enabled.

A:Any way to force IE9 to assume a subdomain?

I think that it depends on what data is stored by DNS servers for that address. This in turn depends on the information provided to them by webmasters. Perhaps John (z3r010) might be the one to ask here, as all 3 of his sites exhibit this behaviour.

Hi guys!

I have question regarding when to use subdomain and when to use A record under main domain?

e.g. I have main domain ABCD.com. I want to create record EFGH.ABCD.com that points to IP address From my point of view I have to options:

1) Create host A record under main domain ABCD.com that points to the IP address - host (A) record EFGH.ABCD.com=>

2) Create EFGH as subdomain of main domain ABCD.com and then under that subdomain create host A record (without Name field) that points to IP address

If I create EFGH record as subdomain of main domain ABCD.com I can have separate MX, NS, SOA... records but if I create my record as host A record under main domain then MX, NS, SOA records from main domain are used.

The question is when to use records as host A records and when to use it as subdomain of a main domain?

It worked fine, and I got rid of the scam screen by about 6 pm. I accessed the internet to download Microsoft Security Essentials. After it downloaded and I ran a quick scan, I turned off my laptop. At about 9 pm, I turned my laptop back on, and I had internet access, but I couldn't access any websites. I still can't.
On Firefox, nothing loads, not even the start website; it simply shows a blank screen. On chrome (main browser), I type a web address and the screen says that page cannot be loaded. Nothing happens when I click on "reload." If I try to access a website using the chrome apps, it says the app is unreachable. And explorer simply says webpage cannot be displayed.
Please help me, I really need my computer since school just started, and I cannot survive without internet.
PS wifi works on my smartphone, just not on the laptop, and I called the company, so I think the problem comes from the computer.

I am in charge of network administration for a school with a variety of computers and a variety of OSs connecting to our W2k and NT4 server machines. Several of our staff and students are connecting to these domains using Windows XP Home (or trying to) and I cannot figure out how to connect them...

Do I just create a new network place? I understand that they won't be able to log on to the network from the initial logon screen like in Windows 2000 (or even 98), but how do I get them to be able to ultimately access all of the domain resources on both servers?

Thanks In Advance...

i was wondering about something,
Lets says the user want to use IIS Manager or anything else that needs administrator rights to be started.
Instead of creating a local admin account to this user to be able to start this application (but that also means he will be able to install any app and start anything with this).

Is this possible to grant him access only to this app ?

Recently I started having trouble. Both Firefox (My regularly used browser) and IE (Only installed for compatibility) died giving 404 errors whenever I tried to go to domain names, along with my FTP client, and Thunderbird simply not connecting. All at once. MSN mysteriously still worked. I regularly use an NTL dial up connection. At first I thought that it was a problem with the connection, so I tried Orange pay as you go dial up, and UK Online pay as you go dial up. Same problem. After a while I began wondering why MSN messenger was still working fine. I had by this time tried disabling and enabling various combinations of my Firewall/Antivirus/Spyware+Adware blockers... I thought that MSN probably didn't use domain names, and most likely connected directly through IPs. I connected to the IP of a website through Firefox, and it loaded. Oddly, for about five minutes after I FIRST connect, sites such as this will load, that is how I have been able to post this thread and register. However if I disconnect, and connect again, I have no luck
I'm not sure what technical information would be needed to fix this, the only other thing I can think to say that would be helpful is that I'm (Unfortunately) using Windows ME, seeing as few things run on DOS or OS/2.
If any other technical information is needed, please tell me, and I will post it
Also, does anyone know of the IP adress for this site, so I can connect to it without having to constantly restart my computer to c... Read more

Here's what I have:
Small Business Server 2003 on one side of a VPN (hardware level vpn... linksys boxes if I remember correctly) and SBS 2000 on the other side. (The vpn was needed long ago for database software that is running on both sides.)

We want all users to login locally, using local resources, but to get email from a new email address.... the same domain name that exists on the 2k3 side. In my head, a trust relationship would work great, but SBS doesn't play very nicely and does not allow any sort of domain relationships with the type of liscenses we have.

Currently, I'm having everyone use outlook web access and we are only using exchange on the 2k3 side, except for those who open outlook on the 2k side. I've toyed with the idea of setting up some sort of POP software that pops the email from the new domain to the old. problem w/ that is that in the contact manager it will still give the old addresses of everyone local (among other problems... local u/p and remote u/p which is only used for email, etc.)

MY QUESTIONS: Users want to use outlook. What needs to be done in exchange server on the 2K side to make it so that exchange users (when composing an email) can see the addresses of those on the 2k3 side? Is LDAP still a viable route and/or is there a better option? Also, how do I change entries in Active Directory to reflect the new addresses? I don't really want to use software that POPs the email, but it sort of seems like the only opti... Read more

I am having problems accessing any folder on the domain that I am connected to.
When I logon from my laptop using a LAN cable, I am able to access all folders under the domain.
When I connect the Laptop via wireless, my server profile is not used and whenever I try to list folders by going to EntireNetwork->(NameOfDomain), the Laptop hangs and says that I dont have permission.

Why has my server profile not been copied correctly to the laptop (it is set up as a roaming profile).

I have also tried to delete all profiles in Documents And Settings but this does not help.
How do I force Windows to use my roaming profile, it will not let me choose which one I want to use in User Profiles->Settings

Hope someone can help

I have a small domain - Windows 2000 - with several computers, including a Linux server connected via Samba. One computer (work station) runs Windows 7 and another (notebook) runs Windows 8. I would like to have the notebook able to send files to the workstation. What do I need to change so this can happen?

With appreciation...


A:How to have computers on a domain access each other

Looks like some of your hardware is pretty old.

I don't run a server but do have a NAS/Network Attached Storage HDD plugged into my Router using an Ethernet cable, all computers that can access the Internet through the Router can have the NAS mapped and store/read files on it whether WinVista, Win7, Win8.1, Linux Mint or Mac OS X. The NTFS formatting of the HDD in the NAS is not a problem. The setup has been much less frustrating than keeping a server doing its thing. I do have Server versions of Windows but haven't found a pressing need for it yet.

I am planning to put in a wireless network at my work but need to clarify something before I go ahead.

At the moment all the client PC's are wired and log onto a Windows 2000 server ... Will this be possible with a wireless network as my experience so far shows me that the wireless network isn't setup until after windows has started up therefore you would have to make the client PC's log on locally as they would not be able to see the domain server.

Hope this explanation makes sense

We seem to be having a problem with some of our users trying to access their computers on our domain, they are getting Access Denied. This effectively locks the machine to all users and you cannot log in. Often you
have to remove from the network, turn off the computer, turn back on and log on as local admin. If this works (often takes up to 10 restarts) the computer tells me that the copy of windows is not genuine.  The only short term fix for the moment I find
is going into msconfig, selective boot into safe boot, select "repair active directory," (this does fix the problem), logs in safe mode and runs repair, however we have had 1 repeat. I have searched for answers or if this problem and cannot find
anything. Any suggestions? 

About our environment:
computers: 600
occurred problem: 45
avg time to run this repair: 15-30 min
locations: 50 

Before the problem started our Manager directed us to turn on our account lockout policy through Active Directory GP. Once the problem started we immediately turned this off, but the problem has continued going on 2 weeks. There is no rhyme or reason
to which computer gets this error. Things we have ruled out:

Sysprep vs non sysprep images. 
Static IP vs DHCP
user accounts: local admin vs standard user

Please feel free to help it is driving us crazy.

Thank you

Basically when I try to browse to any website which has microsoft.com in the URL I cannot get through, I simply get that 'the page cannot be displayed'. This wouldn't bother me but I would quite like to download the new Office 2010 beta and it's not possible.
This seems to be a problem with all computers on the network, I have recently upgraded to Windows 7 (which involved a reinstall) and this did not fix it, I am also unable to access it on my mums laptop.
I can access the website through a proxy but they don't work very well and I can't get the office beta through one at any rate!

I have tried resetting my router back to default settings but this did nothing.
I am pretty sure I cannot access the website through an IP address so I suspect it is not a DNS issue.
I am able to get Windows Update however but I suspect this is through a different domain.
It is still a very inconvenient domain to not be able to access I'm sure you'd agree.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks, Parkes07

Hi guys,
I was trying to open msdn.microsoft.com, but my browser couldn't open the page, so I thought they have technical problems. Than I tried microsoft.com and I realized that I cannot reach microsoft's domain.
Does anyone have a solution? Is the problem at my browsers, or at my ISP or maybe I have some kind of a virus?

I have installed Firefox 3.0.5 and IE 6.0

P.S. I tried with IP address as well instead of domain (I thought I had dns problem), but still nothing.

Please help...

I have this network that has two domains. I also have a user that when she logs on to domain A she has rights to folder 1 and folder 2. When she logs onto domain B from another computer she can still open folder 1 but does not have the permissions to open folder 2. I have set the permissions for this user to have access to both folders, but the access is for domain A. Is there a way to grant permission to //domain a/folder a for //domain b/user?

A:Solved: Access from one domain to another

sorry last line should read //domain A/folder 2 for //domain B/user

I would like to block all web access on one PC except for one domain so they can access their webmail. We don't want them 'surfing' the web at all. They only need web access to get their email. What would be the easiest way to do this?? Do I need to buy some software to make it happen??

Thanks for any advice.
