"Error Message: Error 501/505: Not Implemented or Not Supported" This is the err msg I get when trying to connect to any HTTPS. KB Article ID : 811262 did not help: now it returns just a blank page without error message, but it goes to the site. That's progress?
Went through tutorial "Internet Explorer Cannot Connect to Secure Web Sites" without luck. Just get quick black box image at Start/Run fix "sfc/scannow" with nothing else returned. ?
Can't update Date/time, even though my time is correct to day and minute. Get a simple "an error occurred when," except a few times I got "time sample rejected because peer's stratum is less than host's stratum." ???
Internet Explorer 7, Win XP Pro, Thinkpad, generic router, cable
Our LAN is forced to function out of a specific address; we can't reset it to "Automatically detect LAN settings" or rather it resets itself to "Use automatic configuration script: [url="http://localhost:9100/proxy.pac""]http://localhost:9100/proxy.pac"
[/url] every time. We have no proxy enabled, and dial-up is set to "Never dial."
I can't think of anything new that was added prior to this, except I gave Microsoft the run of my machine from a distance. That's the only way I can explain that LAN setting.
I have been to the secure sites I am trying to access many times. It started to get a little rambunctious last week or so, but I added the site to Trusted Sites as I recall and had no further problem for awhile. I've been unable to get through all this week.
You'll have my virtual gratitude if you can figure this one out!
