One of our managers was having problems viewing our intranet Web sites. Every page gave him two errors with little or no explanation. Annoying, yes?
Our managers are set up with laptops for them to use at home or while traveling. This (computer literate) manager installed a firewall, virus software and set up a VPN to the company network. Everything works fine for him, except those two annoying messages.
The fix? We added the intranet site as a trusted network subnet to the firewall. When it was not set to trusted, it wouldn't run the scripts and objects correctly. But when it's a trusted site, the firewall no-longer blocks them, but still blocks the scripts and objects from non-trusted Internet sites.
