Redirect to unc path folders fails when "Show HTTP Friendly Error Messages" checkbox is checked for

Discussion in 'ASP General' started by Praveen Bengeri, Apr 19, 2004.

  1. Hi All
    I am seeing this weird problem wherein a Response.Redirect to a unc path (say for ex: "\\someserver\share") fails (doesn't load, throws standard dns error page) when "Show HTTP Friendly Error Messages" checkbox is checked in Internet Explorer
    i.e. say i have a simple asp page redirect.asp with the following statement
    <%Response.Redirect("\\someserver\share")%
    If I browse to this page, I get the standard "Page can not be displayed" error (dnserror.htm)

    but, If I uncheck the "Show HTTP Friendly Error Messages" the check box I can see the shared folder(it starts working)

    Any ideas as to what is happeneing
    Is this some known issue/bug with Internet Explorer or IIS
    Is there a workaround for this problem

    Thanks in advance

    Regards
    Praveen
