When you connect to a Firewall1 proxy server from Internet Explorer 4.01 Service Pack 2 (SP2) to change your password on a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server, you may receive truncated error messages in the Source box in the Enter Network Password dialog box. For example , the text may be
FW-1 [FW-1 password] Your
instead of
FW-1 [FW-1 password] Your password has expired. Enter new password
In Internet Explorer 5 and 5.01, the error message may read "Proxy/Firewall" instead of "Source."
The static text in the dialog box is too small to contain the entire server message.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Internet Explorer version 5.01. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in theMicrosoft Knowledge Base:
