I discussed with a few folks here this morning. It works for all of us.
If it were a firewall issue, it would most likely be because of a port being blocked. I don’t know what port we use here, but I’d expect it to be a common port (80 or 443).
I’m suspecting it is an add-on in IE or anti-virus/security software. Surely sounds like his specific config since it spans multiple releases of Solid Edge on his machine.
Thanks for looking into this.
Our IT guys in Germany are back from 3 weeks vacation and have confirmed that we indeed have a policy of entirely disabling the YouTube panel.
I had edited the registry entry in the Global section and enabled the pane thinking it is a issue with my installationof SE.
I am not pursuing this issue further because it is a company policy I was not aware until now.
Thanks again for your help.
