While his reply may not have been the most cordial that I have seen, it was
nevertheless quite on point. I have used Vista and IE7 to connect to FBSD
without incident. It therefore becomes evident that the problem is germane to
you rather than the whole FBSD group at large.

Did you actually read the link given to you in an earlier post? You might also
try contacting your ISP and see if there is a problem there. You could also
just use another browser that is more tolerant than IE7 appears to be in this

If you reply again, please lose the 'top posting' format. It makes following
your replies far more trouble than it is worth.
