We have a website that uploads files for us.

Users are logged into the terminal server and when they click the browse files button which calls a javascript function it does nothing.

This works on everyones computers just not from the server

Where can I add an exception to allow this site to work.

    That did not work.

    And I was mistaken it does not work on EVERYONE'S computers. There are a few users that cannot do it from their PCs either.
