If I connect to my work VPN, then IE refuses to load any pages (inside the work network or outside). It doesn't even appear to try, just goes immediately to "Internet Explorer cannot display this page." I was able to connect to the computer with teamviewer remotely, name resolution worked properly, I was able to ping the web server etc. all fine, even brought the page up in FF and Chrome with no problems. I turned off all add-ins and restarted IE, same deal. If I disconnect from the VPN then IE works fine again.

I was running IE9, I tried uninstalling it but having the same issue with IE8.

Hey Ted,

Can you check your proxy settings in IE for me??

Internet Options -> Connections -> Lan Settings

Thanks,

BT

That was the first thing I checked :-( The first checkbox (Automatically detect settings?) was checked, as it should be. I tried unchecking it, but it didn't make a difference. The "use a proxy server" box was not checked.

Some Firewalls block internet traffic when connected to the VPN, (its called split tunnels) it is possible that Firefox & chrome are bypassing this, and allowing you to get out, but IE is being stopped by a setting your IT department set up.

We don't have any sort of split tunneling set up on our firewall.

This only occurs with this computer, tons of other desktops and notebooks have no problem using IE through VPN or on our LAN
