Subject IE 5.x, IIS, "The page cannot be found"
Date Wed, 21 Mar 2001 19:52:16 GMT
Note: This problem is not directly (it may be indirectly) related to the
caching problems experienced with IE 5.x (as described in other postings),
because as soon as I tried the solutions presented to those postings, the
caching problems were solved.  However, the below problem wasn't:

Web site using Microsoft IIS and Tomcat 3.2.1 as JSP/Servlet Container

Netscape 4.x, 6.x
Internet Explorer (IE) 4.x, 5.x

1. When using any version of Netscape to access the web site, everything
works fine.

2. When using IE 4.x, everything works fine.

3. If I connect directly to Tomcat (without going through MS IIS) everything
works fine (no matter what browser I use).

4. When using IE 5.x, the problems begin:
   a. Sometimes after selecting a link or posting to a JSP page, web pages
are returned to the web browser without incident.
   b. Other times, I get a "The page cannot be found" error.
      HOWEVER, when this error occurs, I press the IE's "back" button, then
select the link again, and (usually) the page is found.  (If not, I repeat
the "back" button press and the link selection and the page is eventually

There's nothing complicated and/or strange about these web pages, and the
problem seems to appear about 30% of the time.

Does anybody have any ideas?   Thanks in advance for any help you can
