hi,

I am running an apache-tomcat web server container on the local network.

Web Server can be accessed from another computer using IE on the network
by typing http://servername. But If I type only servername instead of http://servername
I am unable to access the webserver. Why ?

I am using Internet Exporer 6 on Windows 2000 platform. (on local clients)

regards,

-m

Try reseting the advanced options to default
Launch IE > tools > internet options> advanced restore defaults.

Sounds like a setting has changed that auto fills url address's.

Basilcally you need the http:// in front of the website and the other machine must be autofilling this part of the URL for you.

Hope this helps

Did you apply the SP for IE ? if not, do it from windowsupdate.
