Trouble Connecting via Web Browser

I am new to this list so please excuse me if this question has already been
I am looking at using VNCServer as part of a dial-in solution for our
network. I have VNC installed on my Linux box (SuSE v8.0 Pro). Once
VNCServer is running I am able to connect to it using the VNC Viewer from a
Win2K box, however when I try connecting with a web browser (either IE6.0 or
Mozilla 1.0) I get errors.
IE either comes back saying page not found or it displays some html, Mozilla
says there is no data to display. I checked the vnc log and notice that
when trying to connect with a web browser it is logging 'GET line too long'.
Please note that I am not attempting to connect via a proxy server as the
VNC faq says this can cause problems. The faq also notes that there could
be problems using IE, but I've been able to use IE for this in the past.
The html being displayed by IE is:
<!-- index.vnc - default html page for Java VNC viewer applet. On any file
ending in .vnc, the HTTP server embedded in Xvnc will substitute the
following variables when preceded by a dollar: USER, DESKTOP, DISPLAY,
APPLETWIDTH, APPLETHEIGHT, WIDTH, HEIGHT, PORT. Use two dollar signs
($) to get a dollar sign in the generated html. -->
purdomj's X desktop (penguin1:1)
<APPLET CODE=vncviewer.class ARCHIVE=vncviewer.jar
<param name=PORT value=5901>
Any idea what this error is? I'm running VNC v3.3.3 r2.
Thanks in advance.
