I have a web site that is functioning perfectly on IE4 - 6, Firefox, Safari, etc. The problem I am having is with AOL 9.0 SE only. When browsing my web site using the AOL integrated browser, I receive this error intermitently when surfing around my site:
Error 500 Unknown Host. Try reloading the Web page.
Retype the address in your browser.
Check your computer's Internet connection
The page displayed is the AOL search page, with the above error at the top.
My code has stayed the same since well before this error started occurring on this particular browser. The only change on the server has been installing a new Thawte certificate. It *seems* that since the new thawte certificate was installed, that the problem with AOL has happened more. I should point out that this error occurs on non-secure pages and will occur without ever having visited a secure connection, after cache, history, etc has been deleted. This leads me to believe it is most likely something else.
My guess is that this is a server configuration issue and something happened recently that is causing this weird problem. Or it may have something to do with the an AOL setting that I haven't found.
I am using Windows 2000, IIS5, and asp for coding.
Once the bid is accepted, I will send web site details to test with.
I ask that I receive:
-the reason why the AOL 9 integrated browser is causing this issue
-solution as to what I can do to fix this problem
Millions of web sites work with AOL 9, however poor the program is. I really need to know why my site is not.
