I have a tomcat hosted web app using realm security
Firefox works prefect but when I log in with IE I get the below error.
HTTP Status 408 - The time allowed for the login process has been exceeded. If you wish to continue you must either click back twice and re-click the link you requested or close and re-open your browser
Nothing I've found on the net seems to be a browser specific problem.
Any ideas where to look?
Backlink Service - High PageRank Backlinks to have you flying up through the SERP
So ? Don't use internet explorer, and don't develop applications for things where internet explorer must be used
But objectively, sometimes a login sequence would be
- a GET request from the browser to display the login page
- user enters login information
- a POST request to submit the login form
- server validates the information and replies with a redirect response
such as to clear the POST state, the redirect might go to the landing page after logging in.
So its possible, there is an internet explorer security setting that is disabling or preventing the redirect after post feature.?
Depending on the realm implementation, it could also be trying to set a cookie and redirect, and the landing page requires the cookie signature to be present, if again a security setting in internet explorer is preventing the cookie from sticking properly, the server would likely loop to prevent access un less cookie is present, but session is logged in so set cookie and redirect, and this repeats.
i would try to use the 'firebug' plugin for firefox, and the livehttp headers, have a look at what a successful happy login sequence looks like in firefox, to see what is going on, redirects, cookies being sent. then if you are able to install that internet explorer developer toolbar, try to see if you can see what is going on over the wire when using it,.

Would love to just blow IE out of the water! but....
It is a cookie problem doing this
Using Internet Explorer? Click Tools -> Internet Options, then click on the Privacy tab, then the Advanced button.
Check 'Override automatic cookie handling', then make sure first party and third party cookies are set to accept, and check 'Always allow session cookies'.
Solves the problem but I need to find a way around this still
IE8 was a big improvement. But I still don't trust it to do anything more sensitive than publish cat pictures on FLickr. If that.
However, it sounds like the login process on this site is coded to expect certain cookie interactions and doesn't gracefully handle unexpected cookie-handling setups. So the truth of the matter is, it's probably not just an IE problem. In which case, you're probably stuck with having to do it their way or no way.
