Internet Explorer 6
The default level of security in IE6 blocks cookies from 3rd Party sites, since most of our applications are hosted from our central site www.nnet-server.com the interactive elements of the site will not work unless IE6 is configured to accept cookies from www.nnet-server.com. There are two ways this can be done:
1.If you are comfortable with sites putting cookies on your system you can change the settings to accept all cookies. To do this select Tools on your browser menu, then Internet Options and finally Privacy. By setting the level at Low this site should function perfectly with IE6.
2.If you don't want to accept all cookies you can just allow cookies set by www.nnet-server.com. When in IE6 you will notice a "No Entry" sign at the bottom of the page. If you double click on this you can alter the settings to accept cookies from this site as follows:
This should allow you full use of all the interactive features.
The performance of this site is much improved by upgrading to Netscape 6.1. Although v.4 Netscape browsers should work user feedback suggest that sometimes performance is not optimal. We have focused on ensuring that the newer browser works and we would initially suggest upgrading if you are experiencing problems. In the medium term the site's applications are being upgraded to ensure that they function with both v.4 and v.6 Netscape browsers.
Although the interactive features of the site are designed to work with MACs, user feed back suggests that there are still some problems with certain configurations. The site is being completely (but slowly) re-engineering to ensure that these problems are eliminated. If, as a MAC user, you have a problem registering with the site, participating in the forum or entering a classified ad, send the details to email@example.com and we will sort it out.
TV Browsers/PDA Browsers
At the moment the site doesn't work optimally with TV or PDA browsers. We have an ongoing development project working with an interactive TV company to produce a site that will operate perfectly on television browsers. We also plan to roll out a version of the site which will display correctly for users of systems like AvantGo. Keep an eye on the newsletter for news of developments on this score.
Earlier generation Microsoft Explorer browsers and Netscape Navigator browsers may experience some problems. Our resources are quite limited and it is difficult to have a site which is both rich in features but compatible with every conceivable computer set-up.
We are continuing to work on the site to increase its usability for everybody but in the meantime you may find it easier to use the most up-to-date versions of browsers.
The Microsoft IE 5 browser can be found on most free disks included with Computer Magazines or can be downloaded from Microsoft. The disc that Dixons give out for Freeserve also includes the most uptodate version of this browser.
If in the meantime if you cannot perform functions like entering classifieds or signing up for the newsletter send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange it for you.
