( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I've been banging my head on this wall for almost 4 hours now; anyway, here's the problem : I have a perl script on my website (which has SSL on it) which creates a dynamic PDF file and displays the OPEN/SAVE dialog box (when viewed in IE 6),so that the user can either view or download the PDF file .

now when i execute the script by pointing IE 6 to , for example, http://testsite.com/script.cgi, the script runs fine and displays the OPEN/SAVE dialog box, and i'm able to open the PDF page directly in the browser or, if i choose to, save the PDF file to my hard disk...

BUT, if go the same URL,except now i add the 's' to 'http' , like 'https://testsite.com/script.cgi', the browser tries to download the page instead of displaying the OPEN/SAVE browser dialog box...

here are the headers i'm printing out :
if ($internet_explorer) { $header_data = "file;"; } $header_data .= "filename=$filename\n"; print "Content-Type: application/pdf;filename=$filename\n"; print "Content-Disposition: $header_data"; print "Content-Length: " . length($msg) . "\n"; print $PDFdata;
what am i missing here ...? and why would it work on a non-secure url and not work for a secure URL (and i checked, SSL is correctly installed on the site)
