To run the released version of Internet Explorer 5 for Solaris, your
system must meet the following minimum requirements:

* A Sparcstation 2 or greater
* English Solaris 2.5 and above
* 32 MB of RAM (64 MB recommended)
* 68 MB of hard-disk space to perform the installation


Downloading Internet Explorer 5

You can download Internet Explorer 5 from the following HTTP and FTP

The file ie5setup is a self-extracting executable that contains all
the files you will need.

Installing Internet Explorer 5

NOTE: Internet Explorer should not be installed to the same directory
as an installation of a lesser version number. If you have installed
the beta version of Internet Explorer, it is recommended that you
remove this installation prior to upgrading.

1) Make the setup file executable; 'chmod +x ie5setup'.
2) Run the executable; './ie5setup'.
3) When Setup prompts for an installation directory, accept 
   the default directory or type in a new directory path.
   (Note that installing to the default directory,
   /usr/local/microsoft, may require root access.)

To run Internet Explorer 5:

   After Internet Explorer 5 is installed, you can start the
   browser by running "<installation directory>/bin/iexplorer".

Uninstalling Internet Explorer 5

You must remove the current installation directory, for example, 
'rm -r /usr/local/microsoft'.

Additionally, there is a directory named ".microsoft" in the home
directory for each user account that has run Internet Explorer at
least once. This directory may also be deleted if the user wishes to
remove all personal settings for Internet Explorer (including cookies,
history and favorites).

If you implemented CDE integration as explained below, you should
remove it by deleting the "IE5.dt" file from the system or user


The Internet Explorer Administration Kit (IEAK) allows administrators
to customize, configure, and restrict browser settings, lowering the
total cost of ownership to maintain a organization-wide installation
of Internet Explorer. The IEAK is available for this release; see for registration and download information.


Solaris Compatibility

Use of any or all of these patches is subject to any license terms
that may accompany the patch.

o Solaris 2.4 and below
   Internet Explorer is not supported on Solaris 2.4 and below.

o Solaris 2.5

   To run Internet Explorer on Solaris 2.5 a patch is required. Patch
   103093-17 or later corrects a multithreading issue.

   NOTE: Additional patches from Sun Microsystems, Inc., may be
   necessary to get full functionality from this patch. See the
   patch's README for more details.

   This patch is available from the "Public Patches" link on or you can download the latest
   version of this patch directly at:

   Note that this patch number may become 103093-26 or higher in the
   future as Sun Microsystems, Inc., upgrades it.

o Ultra 5's and 10's

  To run Internet Explorer on an Ultra 5 or an Ultra 10, the following
  Solaris Graphics patches are required:

   For Sol 2.5.1 apply patch 103792-09 or later.
   For Sol 2.6 apply patch 105362-10 or later.

o Miscellaneous

  If the Sun's transparent shared memory is enabled, IE hangs on
  startup. This is established to be a Sun Solaris Bug, reported as
  bug 4144519.

  Internet Explorer does not function on a Solaris 2.5.1 system with
  early versions of the OpenWindows 3.5.1 XSun patch installed
  (103566-xx). This patch is included as part of a recommended
  cluster of patches offered by Sun Microsystems, Inc. A later version
  of this patch, 103566-39, works correctly.

  If you install Internet Explorer on a host machine, and use NFS to
  mount the installation on another machine using a different
  pathname, then you will not be able to execute Internet Explorer on
  the second machine.  Similarly, if you move the installation
  directory to a different pathname, you will not be able to execute
  Internet Explorer. In both cases you will receive the following
  error message:

    Support for SunOS <version> has not been installed on this system.

  ...where <version> indicates the currently running Solaris version.
  To fix the problem, ensure that the environment variable MSFT_HOME
  is set to the name of the installation directory before starting
  Internet Explorer. For example, if you mounted or renamed the
  installation directory as /net/myhost/local/ms, then execute this

     (csh) setenv MSFT_HOME /net/myhost/local/ms/ 
     (sh) set MSFT_HOME=/net/myhost/local/ms/ ; export MSFT_HOME

  You may use alternative approaches.  For example, experienced users
  may prefer to make a copy of the "bin/iexplorer" command, which is a
  simple shell script, and change the directory reference on line 3.

  If you have multiple platforms installed in a single directory, you
  should set the environment variable MSFT_HOME to the name of the
  installation directory before starting Internet Explorer or Outlook

Internet Explorer User Interface Issues

o IE does not display properly under GrayScale or GreyStatic mode.

o Address auto-complete does not always work as expected for addresses
  with mixed case.

o In the Associations tab of the Internet Options Menu, the command line
  field cannot contain output redirection statements
  (e.g.: cat %1>/dev/audio).

o In the Programs tab of the Internet Options Menu, the script
  specified cannot include command line arguments.

o Changes made to the user style sheet (Internet Options General tab,
  Accessibility) take effect once Internet Explorer is restarted.

o Using Internet Explorer with the Exceed X Server may produce
  undesirable interface side-effects. For example, the accelerator
  keys or keyboard access to the address bar may not function.

o Experienced users of X11 can set color preferences using X resources
  with the class name "Iexplorer".  For detailed information about
  these settings, see <installation directory>/ie/resources.txt.

Outlook Express Issues

o Automatic disconnect

  Some IMAP4 servers are configured to disconnect OE after a preset amount of 
  idle time. When this happens, OE will report the server disconnection with 
  a warning dialog. To reconnect, click on another mail folder which will 
  allow OE to automatically reconnect to the IMAP4 server.

o Upgrading from OE4 to OE5

  OE will automatically upgrade your OE4 settings the first time OE5 is 
  run. Any changes made to your OE4 configuration after the upgrade will 
  not affect your OE5 configuration.

o Mail import from Unix files

  OE will create duplicate copies of any messages that are imported 
  more than once. To prevent any confusion during mail import, it is best 
  to use an empty mail folder for import operations.

o Mail import from Netscape

  OE is not able to automatically import unsent mail from Netscape.

o Upgrading from OE5 Beta

  Upgrading from Beta versions of IE/OE is not supported. If the previous 
  version of OE is a beta version, be sure to install this version of OE 
  into an empty directory tree to prevent any potential conflicts with the 
  Beta pre-release software.

IEAK Issues

o Setup will not extract signed custom component CABs.

o A customized browser will not install to the same directory as a
  previously customized browser installation.

o Windows carriage returns must be removed from custom mail, news, and
  source viewer scripts added via the IEAK.  
  Type 'dos2unix <scriptname>' at the UNIX prompt.

o Setting the size of the Temporary Internet Files cache or
  customizing toolbar buttons via an auto configuration script will
  not take effect until restart.

o If you are running IIS4 (NTOP4) or have a custom http 404 error file
  which exceeds 128 characters in length, some files needed for
  branding may not be downloaded correctly upon auto configuration.
  To work around this problem, extract the contents of to
  the same location as the .INS file or reduce the length of the 404
  error file returned by your web server.

Miscellaneous Issues

o If an invalid name is given to the SOCKS proxy setting, Internet
  Explorer will bypass the proxy altogether.

o News URLs which contain a # character in the message ID will fail to
  open in the news viewer specified by the Internet Options Programs

o Internet Explorer may leave files in a temporary directory
  (/var/tmp, /tmp, or the directory pointed to by the $TMPDIR
  variable). These files are not needed and may be safely deleted
  whenever Internet Explorer is not running.

o If you manipulate and/or delete files from the .microsoft directory
  while the browser is running, the browser may hang.

o If different people share a common user ID, network authentications
  made by one person may be available to others who are running
  simultaneous copies of the browser.

o When downloading files, IE will sometimes append "(1)" to the first
  extension in the filename, replacing the remainder of the filename
  if it exists. For example xxx.tar.Z would be renamed xxx.tar(1).Z

o Download may fail if the Temporary Internet Files cache doesn't have
  sufficient space to accommodate the downloaded file size. You can
  change the amount of space allocated for Temporary Internet Files
  size from the Internet Options General tab.

o When saving a file, IE may not append the correct file extension to
  the filename suggested in the "Save As" dialog. For example, .Z
  files may be saved as .z files, or the filename may have no
  extension at all. Without this extension, IE will not reinterpret
  the file correctly upon reopening. To work around this problem,
  ensure the appropriate extension is appended to the filename before

o Internet Explorer 5 for UNIX supports most of the features and
  technologies of Internet Explorer for Windows, but also differs in
  some respects. For example, Internet Explorer for UNIX does not
  support downloadable ActiveX controls or browsing and organizing
  your local files and folders within the browser window. Other
  unsupported features include filters/transitions in CSS, the DHTML
  Editing component, and HTML Applications (HTAs). These differences
  are noted in the comprehensive product documentation on MSDN Online
  Workshop (

o Internet Explorer for UNIX offers some features not found on the
  Windows version as well, such as Emacs-style keyboard shortcuts and
  external program associations. For a complete list of the latest
  features in Internet Explorer 5 for UNIX, see the product home page


The User Agent String for Internet Explorer 5 is static except for the
third field which depends on the Operating System and the processor
you are using.

Here are some common configurations and the user agent strings
generated by Internet Explorer on these platforms:

   Sparc 5, Solaris 2.5.1:
      Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; SunOS 5.5.1 sun4m; X11)

   Any Ultra, Solaris 2.5.1:
      Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; SunOS 5.5.1 sun4u; X11)

   Any Ultra, Solaris 2.6:
      Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; SunOS 5.6 sun4u; X11)


Internet Explorer for Solaris integrates the Sun Microsystems Java
Virtual Machine (JVM) to support Java applets. The Sun JVM is natively
optimized for Solaris, includes a Just-in-Time (JIT) Compiler and
provides support for JDK 1.1.6. It is available for Solaris versions
2.5.1 and 2.6.

Note: Installation of the JVM is optional. If you do not install it,
a reminder will appear when Java content is encountered while
browsing. This reminder may be disabled when it appears, so that
applets will simply not display when encountered on Web pages.

In the event that you encounter issues while installing or using the
JRE or JDK, support and training are available at the web site
indicated below.

If you do not already have a version of Sun's JVM with support for JDK
1.1.6 or above installed on your system, have your system or network
administrator download and install the Java Run-time Environment (JRE)
for your platform from the following site:

After the run-time is installed, simply add the bin directory
containing the "jre" executable to your UNIX path variable. Internet
Explorer will find and execute the first "java" or "jre" available in
this path. For example:
	setenv PATH "$PATH:<JRE bin directory>"

Alternatively, you can set the MS_JAVA_VM environment variable to
point directly to your "jre" executable. For example:

        setenv MS_JAVA_VM /bin/jre

This approach allows you to choose between multiple JVMs on your
system or to rename this particular JVM.

By default Internet Explorer does not display output from the JVM.  To
enable output to the console, set the SHOW_MS_JAVA_OUTPUT variable to
true. For example:

        setenv SHOW_MS_JAVA_OUTPUT true

Alternatively, if the "Java logging enabled" checkbox is selected in
the Internet Options Advanced tab, Internet Explorer will log JVM
output to ~/.microsoft/Java/javalog.txt.

You are now ready to have Java applets automatically launched in Sun's
Java Runtime Environment when encountered on web sites via Internet

Use of the JRE or JDK from Sun Microsystems is governed by the
licensing terms, conditions, and waivers that accompany it.

Java Packaging via the IEAK

The Runtime Environment for Java on Solaris can be included in your
Internet Explorer Administration Kit (IEAK) customized package.
Instructions to create the JRE package to redistribute via the IEAK
can be found by navigating to the following page:

When the runtime is packaged according to these instructions, it will
be installed to <install>/external/sunos5/ when the user runs the
custom Internet Explorer setup program.


If you run Internet Explorer within a CDE session, it will adopt the
CDE color scheme unless overridden with explicit color settings.

If you install Internet Explorer on Solaris 2.6, you will be asked
whether you wish to install Internet Explorer as the default browser
on your desktop. If you answer yes, the generic web browser icon will
launch Internet Explorer, and the default action for an HTML file will
be to launch Internet Explorer and open the file.

The setup program installs an IE.dt file on your system to enable this
CDE integration. If you are user "root", the file is added to the
directory /etc/dt/appconfig/types/C, and will affect all users on the
system. Otherwise, the file will be added to the directory
~/.dt/types, and will affect only you.

The file "IE.dt" is in the "ie" subdirectory of the installation, and
can be copied to other users' ~/.dt/types directory.

CDE integration can be removed by simply deleting the "IE.dt" file
from the system or user directories, and restarting the session.

There is a set of Internet Explorer icons for use with CDE, in the
ie/ie5icons subdirectory of the installation. They can be used by
administrators who want to place the Internet Explorer logo on the


In addition to being able to organize favorites through the Internet
Explorer user interface, you can also manipulate your favorites
through the file system. Your favorites are organized and maintained
in the directory, ~/.microsoft/Favorites. You should shut down
Internet Explorer to make changes to this directory. The changes you
make will be reflected in your Favorites menu when you restart
Internet Explorer.


This release of Internet Explorer supports authenticating users
against Web servers which are configured to do NTLM Challenge Response
Authentication. NTLM Domain Authentication allows you to access your
organization's secure Windows-NT IIS/BackOffice based Intranet
applications from your UNIX desktop.
