Geocoding tool cannot access web locator file

Discussion created by tbakke on Sep 7, 2011
I have installed ArcInfo 9.3.1 on a windows 2008 R2 server and added a GIS Server connection to arcgisonline.com premiumtasks to do nightly batch geocoding.  I use the service connection in a python scirpt to the geocoding and additional tasks.  It works fine in development on a window 2003server but fails on our production server which is windows 2008 R2 OS.  Even attempting to run the geocoding tool manually fails.  The error I get is that the parameters are invalid.  We believe the error is related to some windows 2008 R2 setting, perhaps IIS or firewall.
