    The telnet results shows that port 8172 is being blocked. This port needs to be open so you can connect to our web server using IIS 7 Manager. Try bypassing your firewall and/or router, or talk with your network adminsitrator and have them open this port on your network.
  7. Thank you for your help, I could solve my problem. :)
