Problem with https

We are trying to view or download a PDF file, which is being written on a page using a IOStream. This works fine with a normal http connection. But when we view it through https connection, it doesn't work.

Can any one explain why this happends ?

Thanks in Advance,

"it doesn't work" meaning what?
Error message on browser
blank page on browser
pdf plugin starts but never displays
exception thrown on server
browser hangs indefinately

It doesn't work means, it asks whether to save or open the page. But what ever option we select, nothing is saved or opened, also the message box vanishes.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
