I ran into a problem uploading files using my own upload html page ('<input type="file"
name="attfile">') or the upload in File Manager. Other browsers that I have tried work fine. I
believe the problem to be with a fix that Microsoft implemented to close security holes in its
browser. In previous versions of IE5 the Authorization for something like webmin is passed
automatically to the next page. In the new version it is not but waits for an "Unauthorized
message and then resends with authorization that has been cached by the browser. This works
fine for non upload pages. However on upload pages that are greater than 5K this always fails and
will usually fail on smaller files as well.
It does not matter what action (ie the cgi script it goes to) is specified. The failure is in the
authorization. If the action goes to an apache webserver based cgi it works because no
authorization is required.
Any work arounds?
