Summary

Problem with IE using fmp4.1 web companion on port 591

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

4.1

Operating system version

windows 2003

Description of the issue

IE gives an error when it requests a transaction with the web companion server running on port 591.

This happens when it requests a static page as well as one that instigates a search on the database.

The system works perfectly when I use Firefox, Opera and Chrome

any help would be appreciated as I know that the application is very dated but it has worked so well for many years and we dont want to go through any upgrades just at the moment.

Steps to reproduce the problem

use current version of IE

http://www.nwfa.mmu.ac.uk:591/samhanna/

If you get the search page, enter "clay pipe" in the search box and click 'start search'

Expected result

a search results page should appear with 4 results

Actual result

The IE error page should appear.
