    I thought this was a Vista security issue, but, on one of my computers I can't get it to work with XP either, on two other computers, I can.

    When I try to access my IP address, by typing it into the web browswer, Microsoft is protecting me from activeX control and download.ocx.....I say yes to the activeX control, but, the Unknown Publisher page that comes up next with the download.ocx file only gives me the option of saying "OK" :rolleyes:

    I have googled this and have tried everything I have found, to reducing my internet security settings, to putting the IP address into my trusted sites. I must be missing something as it does work on two other computers :mad:

    Changing download "unsigned" to prompt fixed it :rolleyes:

    I'm certain that I tried that before, but, solved in record time :D :D

    This might be a candidate for the "ARCHIVE" forums :D
