Problem Accessing Files via HTTP:

Problem Accessing Files via HTTP:

(OP)
hello, i was just referred to this forum for my issue.  I am using IIS for my webserver.

I can access files using the following:
FILE://<server>/<share>/test.pdf

I CANNOT access files using this:
HTTP://<server>/<share>/test.pdf.

I've tried .DOC, .TXT and others with the same results.

What is causing this issue?

Thx

RE: Problem Accessing Files via HTTP:

Exactly what happens when you try http to access the files?

a new browser window opens and says page cannot be displayed.

RE: Problem Accessing Files via HTTP:

You need to publish the directory in IIS.  Create a new virtual directory on the IIS box pointing to the directory that is being shared.
