    Hi,

    our company has one application hosted on third party webserver.

    when i ping from that server i am getting response:

    C:\Users\Administrator>ping XXXXXXXXX-XXXX.companyname.org

    but when i am trying to connect from that server (program) to company's AD i am getting error:

    Message: The server is not operational.

    Source: System.DirectoryServices
    Method: Void Bind(Boolean)

    Hi anilmathpati

    When I click Start, point to Find, and then click People, I receive the following error:

    The specified directory service could not be reached. The service may be temporarily unavailable or the server name may be incorrect.

    This issue can occur if you connect to the Internet using a proxy server.

    To resolve this issue, install a Proxy Client, such as Microsoft Proxy Client 2.0. To install and configure a proxy client on your computer, contact your network administrator.

    hope it helps you,

    Kind regards
