Subject Re: apache-tomcat ssl doc download error in IE
Date Thu, 05 Feb 2004 21:57:08 GMT

Hi,

I actually just got this working and the answer is unbelievably bizarre.

It all sorta boiled down to the Pragma header.  I can't set the pragma
header in my servlet and must do it in the Apache httpd.conf like this:
        Header append Pragma "blah"

And "blah" could be anything and would still work, it's just the fact
that it's set in the Apache httpd.conf!  Weird, this isn't scientific, I
must be missing something. :)

Here's the combo I got it working with:

Pragma: no-cache, blah
Cache-Control: private
Content-Length: sizeof(stream)
Content-disposition: attachment; filename="doc.pdf"

Regards,
Daniel
