We have installed Web Client Version 3 on Red Hat Linux 7.3 using the Netscape 4.39 explorer.

We try to run the Netscape on the linux console and it shows the error message: "This page contains information of a type (application/X-eskerplus) that can only be viewed with the appropiate plug-in." When we press ok button to download the plug-in, it does nothing, apparently it does not find it.

Have anybody an idea about what's happening or How to find the plug-in?

Any help will be appreciated.

Best Regards.

Hi

According to the 'Help' file supplied with WebClient, it is only supported on IE5 (or greater) and Netscape v6.

Hope this helps.

To add two more cents here,

I have been using Firefox for a few months, and have run into similar issues. My banks' on line account inquiry screen continues to scream that I am using an unsupported browser. It works just fine.

IE - something I want to use as LITTLE as possible.

Maybe I'm missing something here but..

I thought the ProIV "Web Client" nowadays was an OCX Active/X thingy and as such surely it's never going to run on Linux (at least without some big MS-emulation pack of some sort) :)

Guest,

The Web Client service can run on a linux box... That is doubtlessly what llony is referring to.

Thank you for your help about the netscape and the appropiate plug-ins. but now i have another problem. when I try to run Pro-iv from the netscape on the
linux console, It does nothing,apparently something is missing.
I tried running from a client using windows xp and it works fine, the problem happens to be on linux. Any help would be appreciate


Thank you.

llony,

Can you run other pages that require Active X on the Linux / Netscape box? It seems like this would be the most likely problem area...

hth,

Joseph

Maybe Joseph, but I'm still not absolutely sure I read the posts that way..

Llony,

I'm not a ProIV GUI user and I would hope someone else can give you (and me) a much more definitive answer, but FWIW my "understanding" of the ProIV GUI client is as follows:

The ProIV GUI client itself, whether run standalone or in a browser is a Microsoft-centric "solution". It "is" an Active/X "control" and as such requires some Active/X "support infrastructure" or whatever. Thus the ProIV GUI client may run in IE or Netscape ON WINDOWS but it will never(?) run in Netscape ON LINUX.

If I am correct, maybe this helps to explain your problem (or maybe not). I'll be happy to be (politely) corrected if I'm simply completely wrong - I'm really just speculating on the basis of what I've been told by others.
