Abstract:Which browser to use when running LANSA Commerce Edition - for BPCS and resolving a Netscape 6 problem of images not displaying correctly.
Submitted By:LANSA Technical Support

LANSA Commerce Edition - for BPCS can be viewed on almost any version of Internet Explorer and Netscape. LANSA's browser of preference for LANSA Commerce Edition - for BPCS is Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x, however the majority of browser versions will display the pages correctly. LANSA warns however that certain versions of browsers may display the Web pages satisfactorily but there may be inconsistencies with the graphics and the HTML/Java functionality.

We have tested LANSA Commerce Edition - for BPCS successfully under the following browsers:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x all versions
  • Netscape 4.76

LANSA Commerce Edition - for BPCS has been tested using Netscape 6/6.1 under Windows NT4/2000. There appears to be a problem with the display of images being sent from the IBM® HTTP server on the Web serving AS/400. 

This problem can be resolved by applying PTF SF65974 (OS/400 V450) or PTF SF65942 (OS/400 V440). Both PTF's do require an AS/400 IPL.
