    On an XP Pro system, I web browse from the system out to domain name
    and direct IP address web sites using FireFox, but Internet Explorer 6
    cannot browse to any site, not even with a local web server
    running! It can browse to local files through the file system (such as

    All other Internet services work, such as FTP, PING, VNC, etc. out to
    the LAN or Internet.

    The other weird thing is that I cannot ping this machine or connect to
    its shares from the LAN or web.

    What could it be?

    Tools, internetet options, connections, lan settings, make sure Use a
    proxy is unchecked?

    Failing that, the version of IE and the error would help.
