[Mailman-Users] Mailman page won't display in browser (using VPN)

When I try to invoke our Mailman installation in a browser (Firefox, 
although it doesn't work in IE either), via our corporate VPN 
(Netscreen-Remote on Windows XP), instead of displaying the page in the 
browser, it attempts to download a file.
 I see the message:
You have chosen to open

which is a: application/x-httpd-php
from: http://mailman.ourcompany.com

What should Firefox do with this file?
(Note: the filename above is blank)

Mailman works fine from directly within our network, it just doesn't 
work when I am using the VPN. I imagine it has more to do with the VPN 
than with Mailman, but so far Mailman is the only web application that 
behaves in this fashion, so I am looking for clues as to what might be 
causing this behaviour. Seems like some kind of weird MIME-type bug, but 
I'm not sure what (other PHP applications behave fine within our VPN).

Would appreciate any clues...
