IE not posting data on first 2 attempts

IE not posting data on first 2 attempts

IE not posting data on first 2 attempts

Hi all
After days of searching I can't find a solution to my problem, I have a web application on our work intranet that when you first log on to the network and load IE, the post data from my web page does not submit. I have made the simplest of forms with one input box posting to the same page with a response.write to test and as above it doesn't work the first two submits but is fine after that. In chrome it works perfectly, and if installed in another IIS server it works fine.

But I can't for the life of me find the problem. It must be something between IIS and IE possibly to do with sessions, I have set to anonymous authentication and nothing seems to work.

Has anyone ever come across this issue of IE (on version 9 and 11) not sending post or get form data on first loading?
Any ideas would make my week

RE: IE not posting data on first 2 attempts

I am guessing that you are using classic asp?

If so, what OS are you using?

Also, I am guessing also that you have enabled asp since you said it works with chrome?

You are probably right that perhaps, it has more to do with your IIS.

Are you getting any errors?

RE: IE not posting data on first 2 attempts

I have solved the issue. The default web server settings was using windows authentication where as the individual site was set to anonymous authentication. Apparently IE gets upset if there is different authentication settings.
