We run an application developed in JAVA and running on a server in Head Office (Frontend is JAVA & backend is MYSQL 5)
We've a number of remote users (connected via MPLS network) who are unable to access the application using IE8. However, the remote users are able to get to the login pageif they open the URL in Firefox browser. There are no proxy servers used in our environment and all remote users have unrestricted access to this server.
The java application runs on SAGIOATT server on port 5555. The url is http://sagioatt:5555
For users in head office (same LAN as the server), the application works on both IE8 & Firefox.
I'm clueless how to solve this. Any help will be greatly appreciated as I've to roll this out to production ASAP.
