Purpose:
To approach my own developed Web Application on the Web server, from the Mac client using IE 3.0

Environment:
On the web server, IIS v4.0 is running on WindowsNT 4.0 Server version. DNS entries (for traslation of host name-to-IP address) are setup proprly, as far as I can ascertain.
On the Mac, I am using IE3.0 with system 7.5.3 running. Also using Open Transport 1.1.
Both above computers are connected via ethernet.
To test the communication line, I have pinged the Mac from the WindowsNT and it works.

Problem:
When I approach the the web application on the NT server from the Mac Client, using IE 3.0, by typeing the URL address, the browser does not recognize the file as an htm
file. Instead I got a save dialogue box on the Mac, asking me to save the file. When I open the file with simple text, I see an 'special character' at the beginning of each line of the HTML file. So it is not a surprise that the WEB browser cannot interpret the file.

Note: When displaying the save dialogue box, IE 3.0 on the Mac says something to the effect that I am about to download an 'Octet-Stream' file/application.
