    I figured out the PHP script to login through the SSL port (2083). The login works from Internet Explorer, Netscape, and Mac IE.

    www.dreampod1.com
    login as demo / demo

    a php login page is posting a login string to port 2083 on the main server login. This string is as follows.
    https://demo:demo@dns.server-5.us:2083 – this solution was testing and working,

    HOWEVER,

    With the newest critical and security updates in windows, the login string no longer works in WINDOWS IE. IT now will say "Page Cannot be Displayed." This is very frustrating as I was getting close to a solution. You may try this here, but it prob will not work since you may keep windows current.

    WHY IS THIS HAPPENING???
    :mad:

    Microsoft removed the @ functionality in MSIE.

    Internet Explorer now sees the syntax of http://<user>:<pass>@domain.com/ as invalid. :(

    We are also quite bothered by this. we have had this running on our system for a while and suddenly its useless.

    can anyone offer an alternative suggestion? (other then using linux or a mac)

    This functionality still works on Mozilla.

    Great! now does anyone have any idea how to convince everyone overnight to get rid of IE and go with Mozilla? I'm game but I don't think my clients aren't going to go for that. If the majority of users used something other than IE, this wouldn't be nearly as unfortunate. I'm sure someone will be able to think out of the box and come up with some ingenious alternative.
    Oh well, A problem is just a challenge waiting to be solved. :D

    there is a registry hack that will allow windows users to reenable this function to use in IE

    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=834489

    thats the place to look on how to change it back...


    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_HTTP_USERNAME_PASSWORD_DISABLE set to 1

    or HKEY_CURRENT_USER if that's what you want.


    I can't remember which one and am to lazy to look... :P
