Not knowing your configuration and location of files, I'm guessing that the
web page on is a machine other than yours. I'm also guessing that you are
attempting to access the page as a intranet page (i.e. as http:
//nodename/directory/page.htm). Because you can load the page as a file,
you could try the file->open>\\nodename\directory\page.htm.

I'm also suspecting that problem could be one of the following:

- You are not recognized as a valid user on the server machine.
- The directory on the server has an alias (which means you must
use the alias not the actual directory name/path)
- The particular web root directory has restricted privileges
(configurable through IIS or whatever the server management
software is)
- Try adding the server address to your LMHosts file and then
executing an NBTstat -R command to purge and reload the remote
cache name table (however, because you can mount the drive, I
don't think this will do much).
