Hello all,

I'm confused to the point where I'm not sure what the title of this forum post should be, but I am indeed in need of assistance.

I published a map service or service from arcmap and I know, it is indeed published as it is shown in my "arcgis server manager" under "services", now I attempt to initialize this file on my map, it never maps. I'm using the REST URL given under "capabilities":

So I have several questions, is there a problem with my server not running or perhaps a firewall? I am pretty certain it is not my code.

Things I can do: view the preview via arcCatalog, view the preview on arcgis server manager when I sign in. I'm very new to arcgis server and I could use any help, thank you!
