Permissions Issues/AOL Mail?

By Kate ·
I have a resort set up with 172 Wyse terminals that access the network via Terminal Services. The systems are locked down so that they can only access the internet, cannot close out of IE, change settings, etc. My problem is that users are unable to open mail or compose using AOL Mail. I had the same problem with Yahoo, but was able to change some of my settings in the GPO and got it working. No dice with AOL though. AOL pops up the mail in a new window via JavaScript, but I have no pop up blocker running, and due to testing this issue, no lockdown on Java. Yahoo does not open in new window, so I understand that the problems are likely to be completely different. I am totally lost. HELP!

Well as you are running Thin Clients I take it that you are using some form of Windows as the Server here.

If it is a new installation the version of Windows that you have most likely doesn't have any Java installed as MS no longer offers this option after they lost that Court Case so you'll have to install some form of Java you could try this one

You'll have to be logged in as the Admin to install it and even then without knowing your setup it is impossible to tell you how to proceed from there but it should give you a starting point.
