Downloading odd file types from IIS6.0

Downloading odd file types from IIS6.0

Post by TWl0Y2 » Thu, 26 May 2005 05:20:03


We have a download directory on IIS6.0 2003 and we place .cfg, .bat, .abc,
etc... files in it for us to download from other places. They won't. Not
even if you right click on one and do a "Save Target As." If you just click
on it, it gives a 404 error and the right click error gives a "The file
cannot be found" error. Strange thing is that .zip files can be downloaded
just fine. Where can I fix this?
Thanks.

Define a MIME type for the files in question. See:
