    can someone assist in troubleshooting a problem my friend is having?
    she is attempting to access her bank account via on from my
    location she can login. from her location, she cannot -- she gets a
    "400 bad request" error after entering her info & posting.

    im not sure what this could be; but i have heard that some financial
    institutions use a different port for their SSL communication. perhaps
    her firewall doesnt have this port open? am trying to find out what
    port uses.

    any other ideas?

    Tell her to phone chase and change her login bank details then tell het to
    stop using her machine to login before ensuring she hasnt got a spoof page
    stored in temp internet.

    The problem she has can be indicative of a spoof login page which takes her
    details then gives the spoofer(?) access to her bank account.

    Take precautions that she is not trying to log into a phishing page that
    is lodged in her DNS cache.

    START | RUN | cmd

    Try a different web browser. Disable her firewall.
    Based on your complete lack of details, no.

    why? Guest

    The difference is location is
    a) your pc at your location.
    b) her pc at your pc location
    c) either PC at the other location but the same ISP
    d) either PC at the other location but different ISP
    Ask chase tech support.

    It might have been my ISP groups but a similar question, the bank said
    to lower the MTU on the router, if there is 1.
    Clear browser cache

    Don't mention what browser.
    Don't mention what OS.
    Don't mention what ISP.
    Don't mention how things are connects.

    Other than that fine.

    why?, Feb 26, 2007

    yeah, still swapping them -- these are desktops so its a little harder
    to test, its taking some time (just started yesterday).
    its pending.
    good idea, will try.
    again -- whats w/ the sarcastic ass-hatery? im not a pc tech -- im
    just somebody looking for helpful suggestions. if you have them,
    great. if not, spare me your attitude and keep surfing the pr0n.

    some of the, uh, more helpful replies have requested more info.

    - my friend's OS is mac os x (not sure how this makes a diff on HTTP
    request & response communications, but hey thats why im not a pc tech.
    sorry to have offended w/ my sheer ignorance. "I am a worm...")

    - have tried on the main mac browsers: firefox 1.5, firefox 2, safari,
    and the last IE. no luck on any.

    - on my end, i can connect w/ pc firefox, mac firefox, and safari.

    - i cant remember the networking details at the moment, as ive only
    looked it before going to the bar.. but theres no router, no wireless;
    her broadband is plugged directly into her machine.

    - i think its a cable modem, but ill have to check it & the isp when i
    give it a closer look.

    ....again -- i am looking only for helpful suggestions by folks who
    dont mind assisting, even w/ a lack of complete info. if thats you,
    cool, you rock. if instead youre gonna throw an internet-guru hissy
    fit on me, dont waste our time.

    "they"? oh you mean "it", as in the particular usenet app youre using.
    newsflash: signing in to google groups always requires a password,
    unless you opt to store a cookie. check it out. useful for people who
    travel w/o a laptop.
    ah, the inevitable plonk -- the usenet equivelant of sticking your
    head in the sand when you run out of arguments. plonk away, my friend,
    plonk away...

    Why have you no problem w/ google -- suits your humble purposes?
    So, how do you feel about being trolled by me, ?
    I like to play with words, . It's not my fault if you
    don't understand English too well.
    I need to in order to help a friend too.
    It causes baldness and lack of mirth.

    by definition, you are the troll -- "jackass who has nothing better to
    do than be a snarky prick to unsuspecting travelers". look it up.

    ....your broken half-english is totally whack, its like im reading one
    of those spam messages designed to get past word filters.

    as for the inclusion of webcam fun, your archive assault attempt is
    futile -- this is a disposable account, duh.

    matt Guest

    so, do you have a little text file where you keep all of your inane
    quotes? some sort of stockpile you like to use...? or is it more
    impromptu -- each rendering of ass-hatery an exquisite and completely
    unique demonstration of your delicate masterfulness?

    also, are you the same person as john? trying to figure out why not
    only one, but *two* ass-hats would choose to waste so much time
    engaging in such fluff....

    Why should I tell you if I have a little text file where I keep all of
    my inane quotes?
    It's better than dinner.
    Because I don't want you to.
