This is why I love Opera. It allows you to pretend to be whatever browser
a given web site forces on you. Plus it has tabbed pane browsing which is
wonderful once you get used to it (Mozilla now has this too).

If you are getting a connection refused that probably means that no HTTP
data is being passed, and therefore there is no opportunity for the server
to check the browser version. My only guess is some proxy/firewall
weirdness as Netscape and IE have different mechanisms for doing this.
