Viewing PDF, XLS, DOC on a secure connection (HTTPS) by medic
Posted: 22 Oct 04 (Edited 22 Oct 04)

The following HTTP headers create a problem if the server is using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL):

Pragma: no-cache
Cache-control: no-cache, max-age=0, must-revalidate

Remove them from the Custom HTTP Headers entry in the HTTP Headers tab of the IIS properties.

If you are using ASP or PHP to output such files, remove the following codes (if they exist):

     Response.AddHeader "Cache-control", "no-cache"
     Response.AddHeader "Pragma", "no-cache"

     header("Cache-Control: no-cache");
     header("Pragma: no-cache");
