thread223-834208: File does not begin with '%PDF-' Problem

MY webhost serving the PDF documents as Apache & run with Cpanel. Enabling HOTLINK PROTECTION in Cpanel causes this error to be generated when a web browser (especially Firefox) attempts to access a PDF on the web site.

I've disabled hotlink protection on PDF files and all is now well.

RE: File does not begin with '%PDF-' Problem

I've run into this symptom occasionally with Web Access to FileNet Content Services, and restarting the Web Access server (running IIS) has cleared the problem.
