Re: "Big Red"
If an address doesnt resolve, then how could the client have reached webserver that redirects it on 404? Chances are the client ran something that replaced the default lookup error page for IE with redirect HTML. IE accually uses content from one of their DLLs to generate those "This page cannot be displayed" things. Check shdoclc.dll for hacks. I havent heard of anything that causes this though. -Aaron Wiebe On Thu, 24 May 2001, Mitch Halmu wrote: > > It is probably a web server configuration for default error handling. > Look for the following: > > <LOCATION /*> > ErrorDocument 404 http://www.bigred.com > </LOCATION> > > --Mitch > NetSide > > On Thu, 24 May 2001, Tim Langdell, PhD wrote: > > > > > Has anyone heard of "bigred.com"?
