Article title is "Internet Explorer 6 software update and its effect on ActiveX controls"
Running Sea Monkey 1.1.10(latest) w/ Sun Java 1.4.2_18 (latest for this OS)Java test sites report Java fully functional. Do Have D-Link wired router Model DI-604 w/ firmware updated & port# 113 re-routed to "nowhere" url. since shows closed rather than stealthed.
I Tried the "test My DNS Button at:
1)https://www.dns-oarc.net/ site has "Test My DNS" button which
cursor over displays as linking to:
BUT when button clicked, OR http://entropy....etc is copy & pasted to browser search line & "go" BOTH Return message below:
4b76e861c0e8ff8db82e6be4.et.dns-oarc.net could not be found. Please check the name and try again.
Using IE 6, dns-oarc.net/ is displayed but "test my dns" button is blacked out but cursor over reveals the entropy.dns-oarc
addie & when clicked gets this response;
"Cannot find server or DNS Error
Internet Explorer ". This May Be Due to Active-X disabling patch applied about 2 months ago (since I never use IE).
2)The http://www.doxpara.com/ site has "test my dns" button but cursor over reveals NO outgoing addie & clicking button
returns error message below:
"7f2383cb3e03.toorrr.com could not be found. Please check the name and try again." Did not attempt using IE at this site.
Browser acts normally visiting other sites including here. Ideas??
