Subject Re: [users@httpd] Unable to access sites on an Apache server from Internet Explorer
Date Wed, 28 Jan 2009 21:24:38 GMT
Thanks for the comments.  I'm in the early stages of trying to track 
down this problem and its not something I can replicate.

All I know is that when I send out a mass mailing to 20,000 
customers, I get on average 2 to 4 people saying the site is down and 
when I talk to them it turns out they are all using I.E. browsers, 
and when they switch to Firefox it works.   My hosting company swears its not a server or DNS problem.   My DNS server 
is managed by and its not on my Apache server, which is a 
dedicated server.

I seem to recall there were web server configuration settings that 
could remedy access problems or I.E. specific connection problems, 
but its been so long I cant recall where I came across it.

Just hoping if this was a common or known problem I'd get some tips 
on where to look if its a server issue.
