Hello,

When i open a particular webpage (Internet Explorer) i get this error "HTTP 400 Bad Request" . I have tried to resee internet options and it did not help. Ran Registry cleaners , it was no good.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

By the way, "HTTP 400 Bad Request" is a message from the server, not from IE.

That page requires a login, username and password.  Do you have the username and password for that page?

This webpage opens for the other users, but for some Windows 7 users it does not open. They dont even get the login screen.

It works for Windows XP/ Vista users.

Thank you!

It opens the login page here on Firefox, IE8, and Safari.  But I don't have Windows 7.  Someone else will have to look at that part.

As long as you get "HTTP 400 Bad Request", the server is telling you that it doesn't like the way you're asking for the page.  This can occasionally be cause by your anti-virus.  Anti-virus creates a 'proxy' on your computer that filters your web requests.  See if the computers with the problem have the same Anti-Virus but different from the ones without the problem.

It works for 95 % of the users. I dont think it's on the server side!

No, you're right.  But I don't have windows 7.  There has to be something different between the Windows 7 users that can and cannot connect.  You need to "Request Attention" above and get some other experts to help you.  Maybe on of them has encountered a similar problem.

Is this server in a cluser or behind a load balancer?  Are these 5% users being blocked by a firewall?

It resolves to 208.94.30.33 for me, the 5% it doesn't work for, does it resolve to a different address?

For the 5% it doesn't work for you might have them (if they're not behind a firewall that blocks traceroute) do a traceroute to the webserver.

Please post results, error messages, traceroutes, and access/error logs from web server.  Thanks

Is this traceroute for you or the 5% users it's NOT working for?  We really need those users to be able to determine why they can't get to it.

Does your webserver have access or error logs?  Please post those.

Does the firewall allow any to the webserver or is it a list of networks or IP addresses it allows?
