update IE on NT server

By Sue T ·
we have a server running NT4 sp6a with internet explorer version 2. I need to update IE to at least version 5.5 but it won't let me. When I try it says it can't connect to the internet even if I am already on the internet. I have tried using windows update but that won't work either. Any suggestions as to how I can get internet explorer updated?

I would manually download the install for the version you want to install (from your workstation), put it on the server and try it that way.

Look here for all kinds of IE versions to download

Sorry I'm not overly sure on this one but from memory I seem to remember that you have to upgrade slowly in incremental steps if you are moving from IE2 to 5.5 or higher.

It's been a very long time but I seem to remember that you had to move up in steps as you couldn't move directly from 2 to 5 or higher.

Poster rated this answer. Thank you. I found that I could not go from IE2 to IE4 so my biggest task was finding a complete IE3 that I could download that would install correctly.

here's a list of things to try for Windows any flavor including NT 4 SP6

Think Hal is right though. If my memory is right, if you have IE 5.0 [not 5.5] 6.0 doesn't install right or wont install and one has to get their hands on 5.5 to get 6.0

Poster rated this answer. Thank you. I didn't try what MS said since I had already done what Hal suggested but it looks like it should work and I will keep a copy of the article in case future needs arise.
