I dynamically created a PDF using apache fop. It works fine in Netscape, but it does not opening directly with IE 6.02 I get the message to save to my computer or open. If I select to open - it does not know what to open it with, but I can save to my pc, but would like to have it open up directly as with netscape. That is, with IE I get the "File Download window ". The file type is "Adobe Acrobat Control for ActiveX ".
This is happening most likely because of your server's settings. If you'll configure your web server to send the Content-Type header to application/pdf, both browsers should know that you're sending it a PDF.
Lasse, Thank you for your reply, I will check it in some other IE browsers. Someone said it worked in there IE browser, but I have tried it in two different ones. I was also thinking it was a security level that was set in IE broser optios.
