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):
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.
