Approximately 10 minutes after I start SQL Server, some protocols such as HTTP and IRC are no longer available. When I try to open a webpage in IEX, I get a DNS error, however I can still ping the sites.
Could it have something to do with the hosts file?
While pretty much anything is possible, that seems unlikely to me. If that were the case, how would starting SQL Server enter into the picture (so that the sites worked before SQL starts, and fail while SQL is running)?
I`m not sure... I did some checks with that but couldn`t make to much sense
of it. Could you tell me what I`m looking for?
The problem persists... Now I am on a small network and after the said problem the whole network breaks down and I lose internet connection. I have to reboot all machines and sometimes repair the network connection Very strange indeed. I can confirm that this only happens when SQL server is started.
Other programs running:
Sometimes ICQ or mIRC
The usual XP services
