Can not browser intranet sites
My EVO can't browser intranet sites connected through my corporate wi-fi. Iphone users have no problems doing so. The issue has to do with urls with domain name associated to them. http://server.domain.com works, but http://server won't. Iphones have no problems with them. If I type in the IP address for the sites there is no issue getting to it. I have no problem surfing external sites ie, google. We don't use any proxy servers.
Any help would be great.

It sounds like a DNS server problem, I don't know where the EVO gets it's DNS info from in a wifi or 3G connection. Have you left it connected to your intranet a while? Maybe it needs some time to update?

Does this occur on the LAN or WAN network?

Actually, I just tested this on our LAN, too, and I have the same problem. IP addresses work but names do not.
I turned off the Mobile Network so it shouldn't be using any other DNS servers than our own (2) Windows DNS servers. IP Config on the phone report the correct DNS server addresses. Strange.

In a lot of corporate settings companies use internal DNS servers and even proxy servers to do everything from name resolution, logging, blocking, etc.
I had a droidx user and incredible and they had the same issue. They were both in IT are believe it has something to with android resolving intranet urls. Like trying to go to www.intranetsite.com. There has to be a way to debug this. I will try the trailing slash tomorrow.

I'm not at the office or I would try, but I was use the "ES File Explorer" app to map server drives and I have the same issue....I can't map \\serverName\Share but I can map \\IPAddress\Share
Probably the same issue...I will have to try it in a browser to one of intranet sites, but expect the same behavior.

I am the IT department here.
1. Wireless Router is in Access Point mode on the same internal network segment (192.168.0.x/32) as my computer.
2. Using IP Config, IP information on EVO vs. PC is identical except the IP address (obviously), same DNS servers (192.168.0.10 and 192.168.0.96).
3. I can access http://aptnas/ (as an example) on my PC but it won't resolve on the EVO. I can, however, access http://192.168.0.50 -- the address of the NAS on the EVO.

I was having a similar problem where I couldn't access my work intranet. What finally worked for me was to use opera as a browser. The explanation from my IT Dept was that when using opera as your browser everything goes through their server before being redistributed. You can get the opera browser in the marketplace.
