The web page you requested is not available offline

I have deployed an asp.net application on Windows XP(SP2), Internet Explorer
(V
6). SQL Server is running on the same machine. To login the user browses to
http://machinename/default.aspx. Here they enter log in details and can use
the application.

This works fine on all the other machines that I have deployed the app
(usually laptops where the sales agents can then demo the app live)

One machine keeps giving the error "The webpage you requested is not
available offline" in a little grey pop up box, so i figure it must be
something to do with the browser settings as the database and app are on the
same machine - no connection is needed.

I have tried setting "Never dial a connection" in the Internet Options but
this gives the error "The pages cannot be displayed"

I have also tried unchecking "work offline" but this lets the user browse
through the app but there is no functionality available - if they click a
next button on a page nothing happens.

Would really appreciate any suggestions

Thanks!

Yes, sounds like an IE problem. You might be better off asking in one of the
Internet Explorer newsgroups.

Hi CathieC,

I think Leon's suggestion are reasonable as the problem is likely a
clientside browser setting or network configuration issue. As for the

===========
"The webpage you requested is not available offline"
======================

it is caused by the browser working offline. And for your further problem,
I think you can try checking the IIS log on the webserve to see whether the
serverside has actually receive the request from that problem client
machine. If event no request arrive there, there must exist some networking
issue at the client side machine or browser.

Thanks,
