    IE11 and Enable Protected mode I need OFF for 1 Site


    Hi there
    WHY MS do you have to make Enable protected mode an all or nothing setting

    I have a Media server that needs to open 127.0.0.1:9000 but this fails unless I turn OFF enable protected mode
    All I need is for this site (local host at 127.0.0.1) to be an exception.

    Anybody know if this is possible to do. (IE11 in Windows 8.1)

    The program is actually Logitech Media server -- works fine normally until IE11 had this thing about Protected mode.

    Before I found the trick I did all sorts of things like disabling IPV6 (registry entry needed) etc to no avail --kept getting couldn't access the site !!! (localhost !!!!).

    If you really need to disable ipv6 in Windows 8 / 8.1 then do it this way

    Techunboxed: How to Disable IPv6 in Windows 8

    I've reset the system back to enabling ipv6 as well and switching off compatibility view for that site.

    Cheers

    Have you tried the Trusted Sites zone for this? Enable Protected Mode can be independently set for each of the 4 zones.

    Hi there
    That might be an idea -- I'm going to the pub now -- Friday night boozeup in central Reykjavik always a bit lively. Will try tomorrow

    Thanks for the suggestion

    Cheers

    I had a similar problem with my media server (Plex) and IE 11 so I added 127.0.0.1 to my trusted sites. It works fine now!

    Hi there
    yes that's fine

    guess I never bothered with IE security settings in the past -- but there's a whole new "Cyber crime" industry out there now - these things weren't even in the realms of SCIENCE FICTION when I first started using computers. !!!

    BTW if you use SILVERLIGHT then all bets are off -- DOES NOT WORK.
