I am trying to debug a web service on a network I don't have a lot of privileges on, and have run into a somewhat inconvenient IE quirk. When I try to access a resource (web page, specifically) through IE7 on Windows XP, the browser shows me a "friendly" version of the error message, i.e.:
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
Most likely causes:
- You are not connected to the Internet.
- The website is encountering problems.
- There might be a typing error in the address.
What I want is for it to give me the actual HTTP error code from the server.
Following the advice in this Knowledge Base article (although I did notice it was targeted at IE 5.x and 6.x) I tried disabling the "Show friendly HTTP error messages" checkbox under
Tools -> Intenet Options -> Browsing, but found it was already unchecked. Not sure what else I can try.
