This document describes how to configure the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser for use with Yardi
Voyager on client computers. These procedures are intended for system, network, and website administrators, and advanced computer users.
Internet Explorer browser settings can affect Internet/intranet security and Voyager performance and stability. You
must carefully configure and verify these settings to ensure proper security and stable operation of Voyager on client
computers.
The Internet Explorer settings in this procedure apply specifically to client computers that connect to Voyager websites,
either Yardi Cloud Services SaaS-hosted or Voyager self-hosted (Internet/intranet). If these same client computers in
your organization are also used to access websites other than Voyager, it is the responsibility of your system or website
administrator to determine the applicability of the recommended Internet Explorer configuration settings for the
proper security level and stable operation on these other sites.
Internet Explorer configuration settings in this document are the best available at the time of publication, but are
subject to change. For more information about web browser settings and Internet/intranet security policies for your
organization, contact your system or website administrator.
Microsoft Internet Explorer Configuration for Voyager
Overview
Voyager is a web-based application that you can access from Internet browsers on client computers.
These procedures provide instructions for configuring Microsoft Internet Explorer for secure access
and proper operation of Voyager over an Internet or intranet connection.
2 Microsoft Internet Explorer Configuration for Voyager
For the best available security and Voyager compatibility, you should upgrade client computers to the
latest Internet Explorer version for your Microsoft Windows operating system:

Windows 8.1 Internet Explorer 11 (32-bit; Desktop version, not ModernUI/Metro interface)

Windows 8 Internet Explorer 10 or 11 (32-bit; Desktop version, not ModernUI/Metro interface)

Windows 7 Internet Explorer 10 or 11 (32-bit)
Although Internet Explorer 9 (on Windows 7) will operate with all current versions of Voyager, Yardi recommends
updating to Internet Explorer 10 or 11, for enhanced security and stability. IE9 screen graphics are not shown in this
document.
Internet Explorer 8 is an obsolete browser application available only on Windows XP, which is no longer supported by
Microsoft. For more information, contact Yardi technical support.

For more information, contact your system or website administrator, or Yardi technical support.
Troubleshooting and Resetting Procedures
This section describes how to troubleshoot conflicts and Voyager operational issues in Microsoft Internet Explorer. It also includes procedures for restoring and resetting browser configuration settings, if
needed.
For Internet Explorer troubleshooting and resetting, you should consult with your system or website administrator, or
Yardi technical support. Resetting Internet Explorer configuration is not reversible. After a reset, all the previous
configuration settings will be lost and cannot be recovered.
You should use this procedure only if your browser is in an unstable or unusable state, or you are having Voyager
problems, caused by Internet Explorer, that cannot be resolved using other methods.
Alternative solutions can include modifying user-security and communications settings for Voyager software and web
servers, operating systems, or reconfiguring only specific Internet Explorer settings, add-ons, or Internet utilities.
Troubleshooting and Resetting Internet Explorer Configuration
Certain Internet Explorer add-ons may cause conflicts with Voyager; for example, utilities and webapplication add-ons such as Skype, web accelerators, SmartScreen filtering, pop-up blockers, tracking
protection, ActiveX filtering, controls, extensions, and external-content toolbars. Some of the more
aggressive Internet-security add-ons, including anti-virus, anti-malware, personal firewalls, and antispyware, can also block Voyager operations. You may need to reconfigure some of these components
(or the associated Internet Explorer settings) to resolve any issues. Incorrect or corrupted configuration
settings can also adversely affect browser operations when client computers are connected to Voyager.
If your administrator or Yardi technical support has determined that your Internet Explorer browser
has Voyager operational issues due to conflicts with certain add-ons or corrupted configuration settings, you can perform one or more of the following procedures:

Disable Internet Explorer add-ons, controls, extensions, external-content toolbars, and utilities.

Restore Internet Explorer Advanced Settings to default values.

Completely reset Internet Explorer configuration to default values, including personal settings.
Yardi Voyager Microsoft Internet Explorer Browser Configuration Guide 15

Depending on your Internet Explorer version, resetting Internet Explorer configuration will return the
following to their default values:
This procedure also disables Internet Explorer add-ons, extensions, controls, third-party and external-content toolbars,
and browser utilities.
This will also disable web applications and utilities such as Java, Apple QuickTime, media players (for example, Winamp,
RealPlayer), Skype/VoIP, and Crystal Decisions. It can also affect security settings that can disable some other browser
applications not listed, on those client computers that are not exclusively dedicated to Voyager.
The Delete Personal Settings option will delete stored website passwords and form data.
You should record any browser-stored passwords and form data before you perform this procedure.

To troubleshoot Internet Explorer conflicts and Voyager operational issues
1 Before completely resetting Internet Explorer configuration, you should first try alternative methods, as identified following.
2 Ensure that you have correctly configured all Internet Explorer settings, in accordance with the preceding sections of this document.
3 Ensure that the browser issues are not caused by an incorrectly configured or defective Voyager
web server, Voyager system software installation, setup, operational issues, or network or Internet
communications or security problems. Verify that your Internet connection, corporate/personal
firewall, and network are operating correctly and permitting access to the applicable servers, ports,
and users.
4 Rather than globally resetting browser configuration, you can first try to reset specific settings, or
delete your browsing history.
5 If possible, open the Voyager website in Internet Explorer on another client computer to determine
if the problem is caused by Voyager configuration or client-computer Internet/intranet connections
to the web server.
6 For Voyager 7S: You can also access this Voyager system version from a Firefox or Chrome browser,
to determine if the issue is exclusive to Microsoft Internet Explorer or the IE browser version that is
installed on the client computer.
7 Try accessing the Voyager website from a different version of the Internet Explorer browser.
Yardi Voyager Microsoft Internet Explorer Browser Configuration Guide 17
8 For Voyager display issues, ensure that your video display driver is the correct type and most current version. Verify that it is set to the recommended screen resolution of 1024 x 768, minimum
(though 800 x 600 may be acceptable on some monitors). Also, ensure that your color quality is set
to at least 16-bit. Also verify that IE Compatibility View is active for Voyager 6.0 and 70.6, and turned
off for Voyager 7S. For more information, see the step “For Voyager version 6.0 and 70.6
websites: Turn on Internet Explorer Compatibility View for all applicable websites:” on page 12.
9 If your browser is having issues downloading components or utilities from the Voyager web server
(for example, YSI.Net Client or Crystal Reports Viewer), verify the settings for your firewall, anti-virus,
and user-security addresses and ports to ensure that the web server and client computer are permitted to download the associated file types. For more information, contact Yardi technical support.
10 Ensure that your security utilities have the latest updates.
11 Perform a full anti-virus/anti-malware scan of the client computer to determine if the issues you are
experiencing are cause by any infections.
12 If you have determined that the computer workstation is free of infections (and If permitted by your
system/network administration policies), you can temporarily disable for testing only one or more of
your Internet-security utilities (anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-malware, or local firewall). This can help
identify whether these applications are blocking Voyager operations in Internet Explorer.
Client computer workstation and self-hosted web-server security is the responsibility of the user and organization.
Yardi Systems is not responsible or legally liable for security or data issues due to improper or incorrect setup or
activation of your organization’s client-server, Internet, intranet, or local security applications, components., and
hardware.
a Before disabling any client computer Internet-security utilities, ensure that your Voyager web
server (for self-hosted installations) has the proper security installed and activated, and that you
have added the server to the Trusted sites zone (for all installations). For more information about
configuring trusted sites, see the preceding setup procedures in this document.
b If an Internet-security utility is causing Voyager communications or operational issues, you should
first try to reconfigure the security settings to permit Voyager operations in Internet Explorer.
After you complete these tests, make sure to correctly enable all Internet and local security utilities on the client
computer, including firewalls, anti-virus, anti-malware, and anti-spyware applications and components.
13 Start Internet Explorer without add-ons, controls, extensions, or utilities:.
This will also disable Crystal Reports and Yardi Systems add-ons. If you need to troubleshoot Crystal Reports, you
must first enable all Crystal Decisions extensions. You should also enable all Yardi add-ons, such as YsiNetClient.
a Open a command prompt (Run > cmd), type iexplore -extoff, and then press Enter.
18 Microsoft Internet Explorer Configuration for Voyager
b If this method resolves the Voyager operational issues:
Restart Internet Explorer normally, with all add-ons enabled.
Review and disable one-by-one your Internet Explorer add-ons, controls, extensions, or utilities
until you find the conflicting item.
Either permanently disable or update the add-on, as applicable.
14 If the issues still exist, perform the procedure in “To restore Internet Explorer Advanced Settings to
default values” on page 20. This procedure will sometimes correct conditions caused by incorrect or
corrupted advanced-configuration settings.
15 You can also try testing in Windows Safe Mode, if you can gain network and Internet/Intranet access
and connections in this mode.
Voyager printing functions are not available in Windows Safe Mode.
