Hello, I downloaded the Windows Server evaluation image for openstack and i can get to bot the image and everything i also can connect with RDP remotely but when i open internet explorer i cannot open any website at all except I tried looking up for the issue so i could fix it but didnt come up with anything. Every other Linux virtual machine can get online except windows server. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thank you

Hello, I can ping any website and I can also do tracert and nslookup but when it comes to opening websites in a browser it doesn't work. I installed firefox as well and is the same thing too. I have no idea what the problem might be and I really don't know what more to include in here so some expert could see because I never had that issue before/

Thank you for your help

You can try to switch off IE Security

If that doesn't work ....

Can you Ping to anything apart from

Open command prompt and run ping

Does this get correct reply? or does it timeout ?

Can you try installing Firefox and browsing using Firefox? Does that work?
