I have the same problem connecting to web sites using Safari. Safari immediately reports that "it could not connect to the server *." But web sites show up in Firefox.
I just switched my Internet connection from dialup to an ISDN connection, and this problem popped up.
Running OS X 10.4.3, Safari 2.0.2, and Firefox 1.0.6.

security updates... could this be the possible culprit? I've read a few

Bryan, You made my day, week, month.
Your suggestion worked. I have been going crazy dumping, reinstalling, moving to lower version all to no avail. Safari simply would not / could not find most of the servers I need-
google, apple,yahoo,etc. Anyway your suggestions worked I had one box checked. Once I removed that safari is up and running again.
