Kristy Astry and Sheldon Kohn both report problems viewing ASP pages.

Some ASPs rely on cookies to support the Session object. If you don't allow
cookies, then the ASP cannot store values for session variables. If the
programmer has trapped the errors that this causes, you will see results of
the programmer's error handling code. If the programmer hasn't trapped
these errors, you will see a server error message. The bottom line is to
try accepting cookies and see if this does the trick.

Another problem (particularly in Kristy's case) could be due to network
permissions. Even 'though you're accessing the page over http, NT will only
let you in if either you or the web server have permissions on the
directory. This is unlikely to be a problem for an Internet site (because
most users must rely on the web server's permissions). But on an Intranet
site, the administrator can set group permissions to only allow access for
'the privileged few'.
