On my computer I have both Linux (SuSE 7.3) and Windows 98. I connect to
the internet with DSL using smpppd for Linux and EnterNet for Windows.
I never had any major problems in browsing the Web with Linux. But since
the beginning of this year I have a strange problem with the website of
my bank (www.advance-bank.de). I cannot connect to it with ANY browser
in Linux, neither Lynx nor Netscape 4.7, Mozilla, Opera and StarOffice.
After the message "HTTP request sent, waiting for response..." nothing
Using windows, Netscape and Internet Explorer can access the site
without any problems.
What could be the technical reason for this? Is there any difference
between an HTTP request sent by a Linux browser and a request sent by a
Windows browser? I also tried different browser identifications with
Opera, but that did not help either.
Any ideas? (Needless to say, the friendly guy at the bank's hotline did
not have any...)
