Access to Netware IE shows password

By borrim ·
We have a need for some users to access our Novell 5.1sp4 server running NDS7 to open files without the Novell client. We are currently using IE5.5 to do this. As long as the user is just viewing files and directories, everything is fine, but upon opening a file, the user's password appears in the title bar. Has anyone found a way to suppress this?

Well,

Since M$ patched 19 security holes in IE last year you cannot really say security isn't an issue with Microsoft. It seems you just found yet another bug...

OK, well now after looking back at the previous answers, I'm wondering if going directly through a defined "network place" means I'm still using IE? I really would have thought not, but since the problem occurs there as well, is the security issue not one of IE, but with the core OS itself?

To get things straight:

How are you accessing the novell server if not by ftp, and without a client for novell networks? What is in the title bar of explorer when accessing the server, and what is in the Address bar?

I just now got an email stating I had a response. Although I'm sure it's way too late to respond to your question, deroode, here it is: We have 2 networks here. A Novell network and an NT4 network. The users on the NT net sometimes need access to the Novell server. Normally we DO put on the client, but would like to avoid it. When we use FTP for these people, here is what you would see: An example of the address bar is "ftp://borrim@servername/labapps/startup.bat". An example of the title bar for that same window is "ftp://borrim:mypassword@servername/volume/lapapps/startup.bat

Since your explorer address bar shows that you are actually accessing the novell server through FTP this means that it is actually using Internet Explorer. And thus it still seems like an IE bug to me..

thanks again for the reply. I was just hoping somebody had a work-around for the bug or knew of a hidden patch that could be applied.
