You don't say if you can ping the server or not from the XOs. I'm
guessing that the XOs may be set up to use XS server as a web proxy
server and that they can't reach the server in its new location for
The web page:
has a section on changing/checking proxy settings on XOs if this is
the case. However, I think it would be better to figure
out why the XOs can't reach the XS then to stop using it.
