Could not find a web server at '' on port 2518. Please check
to make sure that the web server name is valid and your proxy settings are
set correctly. If you are sure that everything is correct, the web server
may be temporarily out of service.

Interesting - IE5 does not appear to be willing to follow
a 302 (Found) redirect when it does it's initial OPTIONS
request to the server... <sigh>. It does not seem very
tolerant in its interpretation of response codes - I've
noticed that it will also fail if the server returns a
204 (No Content) instead of a 200 OK in response to an
OPTIONS request.

That means you'll have to include the port number in the
url to open the public area with IE:
