I can confirm this problem on a couple of the PowerEdge 2950 servers  
we have.  The problem appears to be with redirection.  In Firefox in both Linux and MacOS X, the browser gets redirected to:


and then displays a blank page.

In Apple's Safari, the browser gets redirected to:


and the login screen is displayed.

If I type the redirected URL https://bison-con.cs.cornell.edu:443/cgi- 
bin/webcgi/login in Firefox, I'd get the login screen, also.  I am  
not sure if this is a bug with Firefox or DRAC5.
