One of our services gave an odd error. External user would attempt to access it and they would get an error about a configuration file not downloading.
The part of the error message that interested me was:
Failed to download this file. Error code 0x800C0008
What was odd was the service worked inside the firewall.
I thought it was browser related and checked the Net.
I tried the suggested registry change:
- Start Registry Editor.
- For a per-user setting, locate the following registry key:
For a per-computer setting, locate the following registry key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
- On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following value:
- Exit Registry Editor.
This did not need a reboot and the change worked.
To add more “oddness” the service started working before the affected users made the change.
Hmmmmmm? Network people or Security people?
