The EuroMotor-AutoTrain website is tested on a wide variety of modern web browsers and only uses web technologies which are supported on a wide range of browsers/platforms.

EuroMotor-AutoTrain strongly advises it's users to upgrade their preferred web browser to the latest point release/service pack available. Older browser releases often contain serious security holes and as such should not be used. Furthermore, we are not able to test with older browser revisions, so there may be bugs which affect your use of this website. Browser updates are available from the sites listed below :
- Internet Explorer (Windows Update site)
- Mozilla and Mozilla Firefox
- KDE Konqueror
- Apple Safari

Internet Explorer 6
We continue to support Internet Explorer 6 for all our services, however, we reccomend that users upgrade to a more recent version for a faster and more reliable experience. A few minor styling elements used on our website are not supported by IE6, however, this has no effect on the functionality of our services.
The authentication for autotrain user accounts uses a cookie, so in order to log into your account you will need to have cookie support enabled in your web browser. The cookie holds information which identifies you to our server once you have logged in and will persist until you close down your web browser. Cookies are also used for essential tracking purposes during the account creation process.
Some elements of this site require Java support. Please ensure you have this enabled.
If your browser does not have java support, you can download the Sun Java virtual machine
which should work in most modern web browsers.
Note : Older versions of Internet explorer may refer to the Java Virtual Machine as the Microsoft Virtual Machine. This version of Java is obsolete and you should upgrade using the link above.
If you get pages containing the message 'Internal Server errors' or 'unable to process directive' within them, this usually means that we are updating some part of the code that runs the 'back-end' of the website and have re-initialised the web-server. Usually if you hit reload after 2-3 seconds, the problem will go away. If the problem persists, then please report it to us.
