The : temperature outdoors is not going to go above freezing today, so I have : elected to stay indoors and perform warm and fuzzy web stuff. : : Here is the situation; on our intranet we have articles and documents that : are controlled by a very basic CMS. For one user, on his computer, in his : office, he cannot access any .asp pages past the front page where a query : string is involved in the URL. He gets a 500 Internal Server Error (page : cannot be displayed, the logs do not offer much more either) when he : clicks : on this like this link; : : https://my.goofy.server/content/announceview2.asp?AID=490 : : If he clicks on a link that opens a Word doc or something similar there is : no problem, it opens right up. : : So he logs off and I log on with my uname, pw and the pages display : properly. He logs using another computer and the pages display properly. : Aha! Perhaps his user profile on his machine is jacked up somehow (the : intranet authenticates against NT logon info, and even though he can get : to : most of it that is the only thing that I could come up with at the time). : Backups are done, profile is eliminated and then re-established. No joy, : same problem. The problem seems to be isolated to his machine with him : logged on on this particular site. A very odd thing indeed. : : I have Googled for this problem, but really haven't found anything yet. It : is probably because describing the problem properly in a few words is hard : to do. : : Any insight would be tremendously appreciated.
