From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)

Description of problem:
When trying to access Redhat Network with Netscape 6.1 I only get back a
blank page. This happens with all URLs I tried. (rhn.redhat.com, 
www.redhat.com/network/, www.redhat.com/network/main/login.html). When I
access it with Netscape 4.77 I have no problem at all. The result is
independent of wether I activate/disactivate Java support. (This happened
on 20/8/2001 ~10pm CEST)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Whenever I tried today.  Haven't used NS 6.1 before.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Netscape 6.1 on a Redhat 7.1 system
2. enter rhn.redhat.com
3. hit return

Actual Results:  An empty HTML page with only <html><body><body></html>
when I use show source. When I  have viewed another page before, the other
page is still displayed.

Expected Results:  Guess you know that.

Downloaded and installed the full Netscape 6.1 on a 7.1.94 box.  Seems to work

Finally found the time to investigate that problem further.  I proved to be a 
problem with the Netscape configuration.  I had played with the OCSP settings 
and it was still enabled.  So NS couldn't verify the certificate, but didn't 
give any message about that.  So it's a NS usability bug, but there is no 
problem with the Redhat Network web site.
