Hi everybody,

I log in my corporate network with a laptop with Windows 2000 professional. My problem consists in that I can't connect to Webs like https:// or secure servers.

The setup of MSIE is OK. SSL active, PCL active and so on.
One person said to me that when I log in, I recive a file with all configuration and, it's possible that this file contains restriction for that kind of sites.

Which file is it?
Can I change it with any problem?
How can I access to this websites?

Thanks a lot.

Have you checked with your company network admins?  It could very well be that they have blocked access to HTTPS traffic.  So before spending a lot of time diagnosing a local system problem, you should make sure that it's even possible.

Yes, I have checked and it's possible to access to HTTPS. It depends on user.

What firewall are they using!? For example if it's MS ISA Server, you could be accessing the internet as a 'SecureNAT client' or as a 'Firewall Client'. If you don't know, ask your administrators.

If you are a 'firewall client' in ISA terminology, it could be that your browser doesn't use the firewall client or proxy correctly.

If you are a 'secureNAT client' somethings wrong with the protocol rules.
