I am running a G3 Mac with OS9.2 and IE 5

When I type the server URL in IE it automatically changes http://servername/ to http://www.servername.com/

How do I stop the browser from doing this?

It also does not see the IP address.

The server is a PC running PWS. All the PC's can see the intranet fine.

That's a setting in your preferences. It assumes you intended to put the www. and .com in there.

What do you mean it doesnt see the IP address? Which IP address?

I have been through thr preferences in great detail and am unable to locate anything to turn off the www. please tell me where to adjust this.

when I try putting the IP address of the web server in the URL field it gives me an error, I was under the impression that this was another way to access it.

I dont use IE so I cant tell you where it is but im fairly sure I remember a setting for that in preferences.

Yes, you should be able to enter IP addresses to access servers on an intranet. Can you access the web server with an IP from any other web browser? Let's try to narrow this down to a system setup problem, or an IE problem.

I have 3 Ideas (suit yourself.)

1.  Use your server's IP address instead,
      http://204.71.118.XXX/

2.  Go into your TCP/IP Control Panel and where it says "Additional Search Domains:" type in your domain (example.edu).  Also put your DNS sever's IP address in where it asks for Name Server Addr:

3.  Follow step 2 here then create a host file for that server.  for an example of a host file goto

and follow workaround step #6.
