Cannot access secure sites in Internet Explorer

Posted on 2016-10-25
Last Modified: 2016-10-25
The following link works in Safari, Firefox and Chrome, but not in Internet Explorer (IE). When I copy and paste it into IE, I obtain the following error:

 The requested page cannot be accessed. Most likely causes: • You do not have permission to view this page using the credentials that you supplied.
•Cookies are not enabled. Please enable cookies in your internet browser and try again.

I tried clearing the SSL state, but it didn't work. I also tried checking the "Use SSL 2.0 and 3.0" checkboxes under the Advanced Internet Options, but that doesn't seem to work either.

Would appreciate any help.

I get the same error, so it is a site problem and you need to ask them to adjust to work with IE.

By the way, I access LOTS of secure sites with IE and have done for years. IE works fine with secured sites, just not this one.
