Unable to access a MED-V redirected website after connecting to a corporate network on the host

SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario:

- A remote MED-V user receives an email with a link to an internal corporate site that is configured to be redirected to the MED-V workspace.          

- When clicking the link, Internet Explorer 6 is launched but the internet site is not accessible because the end user is not connected to the corporate network.          

- If you connect the Windows 7 host to acorporate network using a VPN connection and then retry the link to the internal site, the site is still not accessible. 
CAUSE
The DNS table in the MED-V workspace (guest) has cached that the URL is unreachable. 
RESOLUTION
1.     Manually refresh the IE6 window by forcing a reset of the cache. 

2.     Disable DNS caching in the MED-V workspace. For more information on how to disable DNS caching, please reference the following article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318803
