    Unable to get to this website using Win 95

    I work in a government agency in technical support.

    We have a staff of about 220 people. The majority of staff use Windows 95. A few staff use Windows 98 (Toshiba laptops)and Windows 2000.

    All staff use Internet Explorer 5.5

    We are behind a firewall.

    All Windows 95 staff can "not" get to this following website:

    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.ex-rhkp.net>http://www.ex-rhkp.net</A>

    (this is an alumni site put together by a former member of the Royal Hong Kong Police department). It looks like something is blocking them.

    Now all Windows 98 and Windows 2000 users (who are also behind the same firewall) can get to this site with no problem at all!! It display within a few seconds.

    This seems strange to me.

    Can a website be put up that stops windows 95 users from accessing it but would allow windows 98 win 2000 users?

    Any thoughts on this would be helpful.

    Re: Unable to get to this website using Win 95

    Just checked this site from two of *my* Win95 PCs, one with IE4.? the other with IE5.5. Both have access to the site.

    Our access is via a WAN using a proxy server but no firewall. Hope this narrows the scope for you.

    I check on Win95 machine and also connect without any problems (we are using firewall and proxy server). Check your TCP/IP settings, are they different on Win95 and Win98 computers?

    Re: Unable to get to this website using Win 95

    For some reason, I got the feeling that it may be a server contstraint.. nothing to do with the site itself..

    Try accessing the site via it's direct IP address, <A target="_blank" HREF=http://62.137.128.238>62.137.128.238</A> and see if that does it for ya...

    HTH...
