my ASP.NET web app being blocked by IE??

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Rob R. Ainscough, Oct 21, 2005.

  1. I've created an ASP.NET/VB.NET web application running on a public web
    server. My web app uses form authentication. I don't have a registered
    domain name, I'm just using an IP address to link from another site. As
    soon as I do so I get a blocked icon in IE (Lower right corner) and I have
    to either drop my privacy setting to Low (from Medium) or specifically
    unblock my site (IP address).

    What is causing this? Is it because I'm pointing to a IP address rather
    than a registered domain name? Or is this some type of cookie issue?? I
    don't specifically create any cookies that I'm aware off (except those
    managed by ASP.NET).

  2. Your IE Security settings are causing this. However, we don't know what they
    are, or what the specific reason given by IE for blocking the page is.

  3. I did some research and it appears that I need to setup P3P on my IIS
    server. My IE Privacy settings were Medium, moving them to Low resolved the
    blocking problem, however I can't ask potential customers to do the same.
    I'm assuming that if I setup a P3P it will resolve the issue with IE 6?

    Thanks, Rob.
