i have a problem when i click the link in jsp page. whenever i am clicking the jsp page link it wants to open a pdf file, the pdf file is located in remote system. its working properly in Internet Explorer. but i am opning this in FireFox means its not opening. In firefox url that is not showing the exact path. optionally its showing like that:

http://172.16.2.21:9090/FMS/source/
journal/%5C%5C172.16.2.1%5C
copyediting%5CELS%5C
Manuscript_Screening%5CMS%5C
RDTEST%5C02-Process%5C
RDTEST-D-08-02051.fdf

<%

String newpath="\\\\172.16.2.1\\copyediting
\\ELS
\\Manuscript_Screening\\MS\\RDTEST\\
02-Process\\RDTEST-D-08-02051.fdf";

%>

<a href="<%=newpath%>" target="dynamic"></a>

can any one solve my problem. as soon as possible. thanks in advance.

Set the Content-type and content-disposition headers and send the bytes through exactly as you read them.

Edit: nevermind that. Set your file/program associations in FireFox.

Would be nice if you can post your solution as it may help somebody in the future.
Also please mark this post as solved.
