|Bizarre problem. IE will not connect to 192.168.1.101. |
I have an APC UPS with a NIC card on my local LAN set to that address and two different XP machines will not connect to it.
(RESPONCE - HTTP400 Bad Request)
The UPS NIC is set correct. I have a another windows 7 machine that consistantly connects to it. In fact, the same 2 XP machines will connect to the UPS NIC at 192.168.1.101 using Firefox.
I'm running Spybot, Adaware, Peerblock, & McAffee and have EVERYTHING updated to the lastest version. (It begins to sound paranoid, but I'm trying everything I can think of.)
I would say Spybot or windows blocked the IP, but Firefox running on the same machine can still get to address!!! Both machines access the internet without issue.
What does IE8 do different? I have completely removed IE8 and reinstalled it with no change in symptoms.
What am I Missing? Is there a key logger or virus checker I should be looking for?
Thanks in advance...
