netscape 4.79 on HP-UX 11.00 workstation does not display www.microsoft.com

netscape 4.79 on HP-UX 11.00 workstation does not display www.microsoft.com

When I visit Microsoft's web site using Netscape 4.79 from an HP-UX 11.00 workstation I get a blank screen. The same version of Netscape works fine on Solaris 8. What is the problem?

... If other sites work fine then its probably just M$ blocking their old rivals software ... And any why is this a problem ? :@)

Same problem here, cant get it to work with 4.79 on any HP box. Microsoft must be deliberately checking for netscape and blocking or have probably put code into their html which can only run on explorer!

You'll have to use Explorer on a PC or I think there is a version of explorer which you have to compile then can run on HP-UX.

Sounds like a feature to me.
