Now, I think you don't understand.
Internet explorer 6 is by far older than the advanced
FirFox 1.0.7 !
I use the same FireFox 1.0.7 under XP with out
problems, but I'm working under FreeBSD-UNIX the
MS-intenet explorer dose not work under Unix any way.
I only need to know which port needed to be open in my
firewall to do image uploads.
