This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

1 Answer 1

What is this server's IP address? If it is 192.168.1.10, that counts as being a loop back according to the best practice rule. If so, you'd want .20 as the first entry instead.

Also, have you made sure to download the latest BPA definitions?
