Internet Explorer Settings¶
For full functionality, the MIP currently supports Internet Explorer versions 10 and higher in both 32- bit and 64-bit. When using Internet Explorer you must set “Compatibility mode”.
After you log into MIP left click the Gear symbol at the upper right of IE and then choose Compatibility View Settings. Note: this is the IE tools icon, not the lower tool icon for MIP
The URL or IP address of the MIP server should automatically populate under “Add this website:” Click on Add to set IE to access the MIP web site in compatibility mode.
Next set the location of the MIP server as a trusted site. This enables the player to use ActiveX even if other IE settings restrict its use.
From the same Tool icon used to set compatibility mode, select Internet Options. Select the Security Tab and click on Trusted Sites. Then click the Sites button. The MIP web site URL should be under “Add this website to the zone:” In our example it is
http://oberver2.Volicon.com. The IE default policy to allow placing a server in trusted zone is that it must use SSL/TLS security (HTTPS). If the MIP server does not use SSL/TLS you need to uncheck the “Require server verification” check box. Press Add to update the trusted site list then Close.
To verify you successfully added MIP click Trusted Sites again, then Sites. The MIP server URL should show in the Websites: box.
