Weird... What happens with other browsers (Opera)? Are both IE and Netscape on the same computer and LAN? Check you IE security settigns and see if you notice something weird.

Hi girionis!I already check the ie security level and sets it to low level. I'm using ie 6.
It works on netscape, mozilla and opera.
thanks

So it is an IE related problem. I suggest two things:

1) Try it on a newer/older version of IE and see if that works
2) Try to install the latest service pack.
