Remote Console Connection Problems

Hi Jeremy

I have synched the clocks (they were out), and tried again with the
following results :- 

1. With IE 6 + all latest SP's and HP's I cannot get - in same problem
(unfortunately it is the default for our network) 
2. With a non MS browser (opera) everything works correctly?!?!


As the system works with Opera, I have surmised that either the temp
Inet file cache or the cookie cache is corrupt, so I have wiped them
down and IE now works!!! - Problem solved

I think that a combination of time synch and corrupt cache was the issue

Many thanks for your help

is your browser accepting cookies?  is your server's clock synchronized 
with your workstation's clock ?

After checking those two, you can send me your arguscgi URL along with a

working username and password; I'll try to help.

Your "disclaimer" was longer than your entire meaningful message -- 
such behavior is considered rude when posting on public mailing lists. 
I can send you a gmail invite so that you can post prettier messages, if

you need one.
