Unable to access outside servers, but I can access the internet
I am running Windows 10 on a home built computer. I started experiencing this problem about a month ago. I can access any website I need to, but when I use various programs that need to reach out to a server I am advised the system is unable to connect to the server.
Programs I am having problems with
- Outlook 2010 (I have it set up to access my comcast account)
- Apple Itunes store
- Windows update
The only other problems I have recently experienced are:
- my system clock being incorrect. Which I reset the date and time a few weeks ago and the problem has not come up again
- I use the website Imgur and occasionally there are multiple photos you can view per page. Previously I could click on the link at the bottom of the images and the remaining images would appear. At the same time as my server problem this issue came about. I don't know if its related.
I have attempted to temporarily remove my firewall to see if that was the culprit but I have had no success. Any help on this matter would be appreciated.
