Default page tomcat 5.5.30

hello, we have a tomcat server that serves up an application that we are currently in the process of moving.  Once our application changes urls, we would like for all requests (http and https) in tomcat to show a simple static page letting our users know of the new URL.  It seems like we have it working however, IE displays its own error message unless you turn off "show friendly http error messages"

Any way around this?  Thanks

What version of IE are you using?  Most versions before the latest are not really standard complaint hence some of the unexpected error messages.

Although not ideal you really need to detect the browser on your Tomcat server and server up the appropriate pages - depending on how long you need to keep this up it might not be worth changing the code.

If you start making changed you might just want to consider doing redirects and sending them off to the new server.

Hope this helps.

well, i found the solution to our problem.  IE seems to take it upon itself to display its own error message unless the static page is less than 512 bytes.  once we added enough content to the page, it displayed to the browser with no issues.
