In fact it will be the other way around: the device will be giving that response
to a request that IE is making.

The error message means that the server saw the request but didn't like it
for some reason. Common causes are: sending HTTP 1.0 when a server
only wants to see HTTP 1.1 (since the connection is local there could be
a default in effect which would be doing that if there is also a proxy involved.)
and sending a User-Agent which the host does not recognize. You could try
spoofing the MSIE 6.0 User-Agent string if you suspect the latter cause.
