IE 7 beta not find website (JSF)

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Joseph Ferraro, May 4, 2006.

  1. I am having a problem with IE7 and it is driving me crazy

    IE7 cannot find certain websites, specifically

    I have two machines running IE7 beta two, and the problem is on both
    machines. I also have several machines running IE6 and there is no problem
    going to this site. In addition if I use the browser built into AOL (on the
    machines with IE7) I have no problem reaching this site.

    I have checked all the settings and I cant find anything in IE7 that is
    causing it not to find this site.

    Can someone please offer some information this.

    Thanks in advance

    Try going to Tools>Internet Options>Connection
    Click on Lan Settings
    Check Automatically Detect Settings
    Click Ok, Click OK

    Also, they have a tool to spoof IE 6. Find Link by clicking My Favorite
    Websites Don't Load Correctly or Don't Seem to work at all in IE7.

  5. Thanks for the suggestions, I appreciate you quick responses. Unfortunately,
    I have done all of this and still the problem exists.

    Any other suggestions?

  6. It could be a DNS issue. FWIW here is what my nslookup shows
    for it:

    Non-authoritative answer:

    Before trying it again with IE, use a cmd window
    to make sure that you can resolve that name and load it into XP's
    dnscache. E.g. enter:


    (Pay particular attention to whether any timeouts are reported.)

    Then ping -n 1 it.

    ping -n 1

    Is the address being used by ping one of the addresses returned
    by nslookup? If not you might have an override in HOSTS which
    would be causing the error.

    Don't worry if the ping works or not. The idea is just to be sure
    that the XP dnscache will be able to help resolve IE's lookups.
    In this particular case the ping does work but these days with ICMP
    being disabled by many sites you shouldn't be unduly concerned
    if it doesn't.

    BTW I got a redirect from using just the server name.
    You could avoid that by using the final URL:

    Good luck

  7. Can you explain the rationale for this please?
    E.g. is this something which would be particular to an AOL user?
    FWIW I don't think that we have enough information about the OP's link
    apart from the hint that AOL may be involved. E.g. if it was a Dial-up
    link changing the LAN connection settings probably wouldn't have any effect
    and in any case I think that use of this option presupposes that there
    is a proxy server to perform the "Automatic Configuration" involved.

    Otherwise I think that I would suggest the opposite: make sure that
    those options were unchecked as they can cause delay and interference.

    That's interesting. They have a direct link to a .reg file in there
    with no explanation about all the assumptions behind clicking on it.
    (E.g. will there be a download prompt? is the default association for .reg
    still Merge? Etc.)

    I have been pointing users at this page when User-Agent issues
    are suspected:

    Hmm... and that page has been revised since I last looked
    --what was once on the bottom is now on the top. ; }

    (serendipity) Some other neat links in there now too! (Thanks for that.)

  8. The only involvement of AOL, is that their browser finds the site, as does
    any machine using IE6. The only reason I mentioned AOL was to show that
    using browsers other than IE7, the site can be easily accessed.

    It is cable modem connection

  9. If the link is identical in each case then that that suggests
    you have some kind of interference when IE is being used.
    I have no idea why you would only have interference for some
    particular site. However, an example would be that for some
    people the Google toolbar apparently can create such a symptom
    with sites. AFAIK nobody knows why, just that
    uninstalling that product avoids the symptom.

    In any case, with IE7 a useful test along this tack would be
    to try using the IE (No Add-ons) version. (E.g. that menu item via
    Programs - Accessories - System Tools)
    If that works it would prove that you have some third-party extension
    running normally which causes the symptom.

    Good luck
