Hi,
I am trying to download a word (.doc) file on server.I used the following two lines of code,
response.setContentType("APPLICATION/OCTET-STREAM");
response.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=\""+ filename + "\"");
This works fine in IE but for netscape6 I get the file type as .jsp instead of getting .doc, and when I choose to download the file form the existing location it shows some irrelevant data on browser itself.
Can Anyone help me to sort out the problem.
Thanx,
Vikas

Hi vikastarade,

Please check our naming policy and alter your display name accordingly.

As for your question, does your web server recognize the .doc MIME type ? I once had the same problem with Netscape browsers displaying garbled junk instead of downloading the file. This was for .ra files, but the problem eventually got tracked down to the web server MIME settings.
