IE6 Problem

By hulandsdj ·
A client has just purchased new system with XP and IE6 will open and logon to server but it will not display anything other than the display error page. It tells you that the server could not be detected but it has as it connects and allows you to read and send email etc. All settings are the same as the old machine as they still operate it in another room.

IE6 Problem

by rawright In reply to IE6 Problem

IE6 has a number of security 'fixes' included, and the default settings seem to block almost everything on the web. I've recently encountered this problem on some new machines running XP, and found that by fiddling with the Advanced settings and using some custom security settings I could restore functionality. Try, for a start, moving a commonly used web address into the Trusted Zone and see if it allows you to view it. If this works, it's a settings problem that you should be able to clearup by trial and error. My approach was to open up everything, then disable options until problems appeared. I then removed the most recent restriction and haven't had any trouble since.

I had a similar problem with the site that we are hosting. I applied all current patches for IE6 on our web server, and then users with newer versions were then able to access all pages.
