Subject RE: Problem with file URL
Date Mon, 07 Jan 2002 18:00:12 GMT
The OS I'm running on is Unix.  I did some preliminary testing on NT (my
browser and Tomcat server were on the same machine).  When I ported to Unix,
I started having issues.

What OS are you using?  Using the file protocol requires an absolute path
to a local file I believe.  In the case of Windows, the form
'file:///c:/dir1/dir2/file.txt'. I've never seen the 'file' protocol used
to access a file on a remote server.
