  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post here.

    Before troubleshooting, I think the articles below are also important.

    1. Is the proxy configured manually or automatically? If it is configured automatically, please try to clear WPAD and cache on client site.
    2. Do you enable cache on TMG? If yes, please try to disable it and look if the issue persist.
    3. Please check your TMG live logging to see which rule is blocking your traffic.

    Best Regards

    1. Yes we have configured proxy manually on client machine, and tryed WPAD chache cleared.

    2. Tryed enable/Disable TMG cache

    Still issue persist.

    Few more observation are below:-

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your update.

    Does the problem occur regularly or randomly?

    Since the problem is a special case that it appears only when you access google. So I need you to do the steps below:

    1. When the problem occur, please capture error information on TMG or check report on TMG
    2. Do you use public DNS? Do you configure DNS address on TMG’s internal or external NIC? I need to know your DNS location. Please try to modify your host file on TMG server. You are able to write mapping relationship between google and its IP to host file so that we can confirm if the problem is related to the DNS.

    Best Regards

  • Dear Quan,

                             This problem is randomly comming.

    We have local DNS server (Installed on Windows2003) in our network, which will forward query to ISP DNS server.

    Yes have already added google DNS address in TMG server host file.

    But still today we have this issue three times.

    We have teasted Primary & Secondory DNS as diffrent remte location (Sub Branch) server ip, same problem.

    Where as in Sub branch same version TMG is working fine same configuration.

    Have installed anather server in same network with windows 2008 base OS, there also same problem is there. 

    Thanks & Regards,

  • Hi,

    Is there any other Firewall or secure device between the TMG and internet?

    When the issue occurs, please try to clear arp information on TMG server or switch to see if the issue can restore back immediately.

    If the above steps still cannot help you, I think you need to capture the network packets from TMG to google while the issue appears so that we can confirm whether the issue is related to TMG and where the traffic is blocked.

    In addition, Do the google works fine on your TMG before? If you did something result in the issue. For example, replace ISA with TMG or migration?

    You also need to compare your network environment with the site that works fine.

    Any update, please feel free to contact me.

    Best Regards
