    I have a small network at home were I am hosting a SBS 2003 server. I have
    upgraded 2 clients to Vista and both of these PC's are not able to view any
    site I hav ehosted on the server. These clients are not part of the domain
    but were able to access all sites befor the upgrade.

    For example: If I open IE7 and type our FQDN www.xxxlicht.com/exhcnage to
    check my e-mail, this works from within my LAN on a XP client but not either
    Vista client. It only works if I use the http://192.168.1.201/exchange. A
    Vista client outside my LAN has no problem.

    Below is some additional info I though might be helpful:

    Could someone please take a stab at this problem. I have search high and low
    and cant seems to find any leads to what might be causing the problem.

    Thanks
