Problems logging on

Users have recently been experiencing problems logging on with Internet Explorer. I strongly suspect that the problem is due to the privacy setting in Internet Explorer blocking the cookies used with this website. The problem seems to be that Internet Explorer blocks some but not all cookies.

Fix 1:

  1. Click on TOOLS on the menu bar
  2. Click on INTERNET OPTIONS
  3. Click on the PRIVACY tab on the pop-up window.
  4. Click on the button SITES
  5. Enter securesslhost.net as the address of the website.
  6. Click on always allow.

These two options will allow Internet Explorer to accept all cookies from our hosting provider.

Fix 2:

  1. Click on TOOLS on the menu bar
  2. Click on INTERNET OPTIONS
  3. Click on the PRIVACY tab on the pop-up window.
  4. Click on ADVANCED
  5. Select OVERRIDE AUTOMATIC COOKIE SESSION HANDLING
  6. Select ALWAYS ALLOW SESSION COOKIES

This lets Internet Explorer accept all session cookies. Session cookies are the things that let a website remember who you are when you have logged on to it.

Fix 3:

Block all cookies for securesslhost.net.

This adds a long long id to the URL to track that you have logged on. Unfortunately this is not as secure as using cookies.
