1. Trying to open the page on a different browser.
2. Turning off the Windows Firewall while trying to access the page
3. Resetting and reinstalling TCP/IP winsock through command prompt in case of corrupted files.
4. Erasing all temp. internet in case of corrupted files.
5. Run Spy Bot S&D to see if i have malware/etc. on my computer (didn't find anything)
6. Also ran Malwarebytes anti-malware (didn't find anything)
The one thing I found that I have yet to try that shows promise is this that I found at microsofttechsupport.net, however I do not understand what it means.
Thanks for help and suggestions. Unfortunately, uninstalling AV did not help.
I just want to write here, for anyone who have a similar problem, that we found the solution: the administrator changed the port number on the server and now it works. However, I have no idea what kind of restrictions are there on the server that it connected from XP and did not want to connect from Vista. Vista perhaps sends different TCP packages or something... Don't know... A bit more detailed discussion may be found here: http://www.vistax64.com/network-internet/1...r-via-http.html
And just to explain why I wrote it on the security and not TFS forum: The issue is very loosly related with TFS, as this is just a question of connecting with a http server. Well it is in fact even a question of connecting to the TCP server. I thought it is related with some security settings on my laptop. It seems that it is maybe more with networking.
I have no idea what to do. I'm competent with computers, but not really with command prompt or anything like that - I mean I can follow directions on how to fix problems, but have no idea how to go about doing stuff on my own. But I'm extremely frustrated - school starts in 2 weeks for me, and this is a site I will need routine access to while I am at school. Help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
