It would be easier to troubleshoot if you used a browser that returned
a meaningful error message.  "The page could not be found" could be just
about anything.  DNS, routing, broken link, etc.

vickyr> i even tried the same thing under linux--->mozilla and i get site
name not found which i believe is less meaningful than ie :)

this strongly suggests a DNS problem to my mind, at least. Have you verified
that DNS is working properly? The one thing that I find myself saying nearly
constantly to folks at work is, "A browser is not much of a diagnostic tool."
Use something that generates a meaningful error message. (use dig(1), `telnet
host 80`, traceroute, etc.) If you have already used these tools, my
apologies; your first post was a little short on details.
