Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration is a Microsoft® Internet Explorer feature that is enabled by default in some Microsoft Windows Server operating systems. This is a security feature that limits the ability to browse sites with certain types of web content. Although a valuable resource for protecting your computer, this feature may pose difficulties when attempting to load a TASKE web application. This article provides instruction for adding your TASKE web application to the list of local Intranet sites in Internet Explorer and eliminating the loading difficulties associated with Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration.
When browsing to a TASKE web application, a blank page loads instead of the Sign In page.
This issue is potentially due to Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration being enabled on the server computer. This security feature is enabled by default in many versions of Windows Server and it blocks several types of web content that are known to contain security threats.
Add the TASKE web application to the Local intranet zone in Internet Explorer.
To do this
- Open Internet Explorer
- Select Internet Options from the Tools menu
- Click the Security tab.
- Select the Local Intranet webcontent zone
- Click the Sites button to open the Local intranet window.
- Click the Advanced button and, in the window that follows, add: http://<TASKE Web Server Name> to the list of local Intranet sites.
Close the Internet Options windows and browse to the TASKE web application Sign In page. The page should now load properly.
