Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I can get here. I can get to MSDN, but once I log onto MSDN all of my attempts to read/post questions times out.

Our Network Administrator has no clue. He said if I could figure it out, he'd fix it. He thinks it is because the ISA Server is too old to understand Microsoft's newer HTML technology. Specifically, he says there are "spaces in the header that the ISA Server can not parse."

Is it impossible for me to use MSDN once my identity has been verified?

I have no idea what the cause is, but I have the same problem- I simply cannot sign in to MSDN. I get to the log-in page, supply my credentials and at some point when it should be forwarding me back to the forums it just fails. –  glenatron Mar 17 '11 at 17:23
It's good to know I'm not going this alone, glendatron. Is your work using an ISA Proxy Server as well? –  jp2code Mar 17 '11 at 18:39
We don't use any proxy server at all. As I have the same problem in multiple browsers I think my Live account is probably broken in some respect at Microsoft's end. –  glenatron Mar 18 '11 at 14:17
