Facebook.com times out in Forefront TMG RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently deployed Forefront TMG as my web access server. Users whose browser settings point to TMG as proxy server cannot access facebook. The connection times out with the error code 10060. All other websites, including social networking and https sites, remain accessible. I do not recall explicitly blocking access to facebook. I do not want to block access to any websites. How do I resolve this?

  • Hi,

    check the TMG Live logging to see the reason why TMG Server blocks access to the Facebook website:

  • Hi Marc,

    I have looked at the logs and all I see is a timeout error 10060 which is not definitive enough.

    Upon further inspection, however, I observed that XP machines have no problem accessing facebook through Forefront TMG. The problem seems to be limited to Windows 7 computers. I know I am getting somewhere but I need assistance to get around this. I suspect it could be a security update on TMG that affects only Windows 7 machines. Have you got any ideas?
