I am working on a Department of Defense network and system.
Even with HIPS temporarily disabled I cannot use a browser on the server. I get an IE enhanced security error. When I attempt to access confluence (installed but not setup) from my laptop using the URL http://servername:8090 I get an error that the server refused the connection. Any suggestions?
A refused connection often means the system isn't running on that url.
I would be very surprised to find a system running for a defence department over http - that's a plain text connection! I would very much expect it to be https, and probably with the port removed as well.
Are you sure you have the right url there?
Ok, but where is your system actually running? If you have not changed the defaults, then it should be on the url in the docs, but a refusal suggests a network block (which could be a firewall on your machine or even a browser setting), or that there is a service listening on that port but not serving anything.
I'd like to see the full error message, but the next thing to check is if Confluence is actually running and listening on that port.
I don't know how to check process ports on Windows, but "netstat" is used on Unix-like systems and you can search the output for 8090. May be easier to look for the process - in the process management, you'll see Confluence, Tomcat, Java (one or all!).
If it does appear to be running, then check the end of the application log <confluence home>/logs/atlassian-confluence.log , If that does not appear, or looks like Confluence has failed or is not currently running, the next place to look is the Tomcat log - <confluence install>/logs/catalina.out
