Java on IE9 with Windows Home Server 2011 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I cant get any java or javascript sites to work with IE9 in Windows Home Server 2011.  I have Java installed, and scripting enabled.  I have also enabled EVERYTHING in the security settings.  But when I go to a site like time.gov, which uses Java, I get an error or it doesnt even load.  Weird.

  • The problem is that you shouldn't be surfing the web from your server's desktop in the first place.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • While I avoid general surfing from my server's desktop, I do use it on rare occasions but only because I'm running AV on it and only on sites I relatively trust. I can get to time.gov and I see the map and pick a time zone. I don't even have Active Scripting enabled.

    Perhaps if you post the error that you mentioned....

  • I can pick a timezon on time.gov too, but the realtime clock with seconds doesnt appear.  That's the Java part.  Java does work in Firefox, so I'll just use that instead.  I know how I'm not supposed to use WHS as my primary desktop, but I'm just trying to kill time using it as my primary household PC until I get my Windows 8 touchscreen laptop. :-)

  • You'll be waiting a while if you want a Windows 8 laptop. Windows 8 is at least a year from release, accorind to all the net.pundits. Or you can pick up something from Motion Computing (I like the looks of the CL900) and put the Windows 8 preview on it yourself.

  • I have a similar issue. I just bought a TrippLite UPS with has a USB comms output to allow the server to shutdown gracefully when the UPS switches to battery for a period of time. The TrippLite program called PowerAlert will not run, since it needs a java runtime.

    Not that it helps you, but the APC PowerChute software runs fine on both WHS1 and WHS2011. Can you use the native Windows functionality for your UPS?
