- You have an internal Domain Name System (DNS) server that cannot resolve external DNS names.
- You have internal client computers that connect to a server that is running Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server (ISA Server) or Windows Essential Business Server 2008. This ISA server or Windows Essential Business Server server is configured as a firewall between the internal network and the Internet.
When the ISA server or the Windows Essential Business Server server receives a Web request from a client computer, the ISA server or the Windows Essential Business Server server tries to resolve the name of the requested Web site to an IP address. However, because the internal DNS server cannot resolve external DNS names, the request may take longer to process.
Note This problem may occur even if you have configured a routing rule in ISA Server or in Windows Essential Business Server.
Fix it for me
Let me fix it myselfTo resolve this problem yourself, use the Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) code in this section to disable name resolution for the ISA Server routing rules or the Windows Essential Business Server routing rules. To run this code, follow these steps.

- Start Notepad, and then paste the following VBScript code in Notepad:
' Create the root object.
Dim root ' The FPCLib.FPC root object
Set root = CreateObject("FPC.Root")
' Declare the other objects needed.
Dim isaArray ' An FPCArray object
Dim webProxy ' An FPCWebProxy object
Dim restartMask ' A 32-bit bitmask of type FpcServices
' Get references to the array object
' and the Web proxy object.
Set isaArray = root.GetContainingArray()
Set webProxy = isaArray.ArrayPolicy.WebProxy
' Configure the Web proxy to skip name resolution
' while checking access and routing rules and save
' the new configuration.
webProxy.SkipNameResolutionForAccessAndRoutingRules = True
restartMask = webProxy.GetServiceRestartMask
' Restart the Firewall service so that
' the change will take effect.
- Click Save on the File menu, and then follow these steps in the Save As dialog box:
- In the Save as type list, click All Files.
- In the File name box, type FileName.vbs.
- Copy the .vbs file to the ISA server or to the Windows Essential Business Server server, and then double-click the .vbs file to run the VBScript code.
- Click OK when you are prompted.
