I am moving my Kerio Connect (v7.1.1) server to new hardware using Windows Server 2008. I previously used Windows Server 2000 with no problems. With Server 2008, I am unable to either get the trial key downloaded (verfication image wont download) and using my license key, the AV updates wont download.
I have narrowed it down this far using Windows XP Pro as a control on the new server hardware:
Using the new server hardware, the same network, the same internet connection, the same server IP address and the same drivers, varying only the operating system:
With Windows XP Pro installed on the server, Kerio works correctly.
With Windows Server 2008 installed, I cant get the image downloaded for the trial license and using my license key, I cant download antivirus updates.
With Server 2008:
This is a clean install of Server 2008.
The Windows firewall is off.
IPv6 is disabled in the registry.
I can access the two AV sites listed below.
I can download the Kerio executable from kerio.com.
I can get OS updates from Microsoft.
I can get driver downloads from Intel.
I can access numerous web sites trouble free.
I disabled the onboard NIC on the Intel S3200SHV motherboard and tried a 3Com 3c905 NIC to see if there was a driver interaction. This did not help the problem.
Has anyone seen anything like this before? This is a plain, out of the box installation of Server 2008. No roles or features added. The server is not a domain controller, it is set as standalone.
