Hi all,...

just curious to know which setting(s) on MSIE, will prevent
response.sendRedirect to work

Just came across this problem, though solved it by using
getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher... later..

I know somebody here, definitely has a clue.. about that..

PS: The application was working perfect on mostIE browsers but not on some.. figured out this to be the reason.No reDirecting is happening on some browsers...

I've run into firewalls that don't allow re-directs but not lately.

Hi Ben,..


So, it might not be because of some IE setting(s)??
Also I have noticed that it happened only on XP-Professional with SP2..
damn!!! that must be the reason - SP2
