    Link to Files on Network

    jpollard38
      We're in the process of upgrading from 10g to 11g. We have almost all functionality from 10g running in 11g, but are stuck trying to get link objects working as they were in 10g.

      In 10g we used the dashboard object "Link or Image" to link to files that live on a network folder. For example, we had a "Link or Image" object with the destination set as URL and the destination property set as something like "\\abc.domain.com\folder\file.xls" with the target set as new window.

      This worked well in 10g, but returns a 404 error in 11g as follows:

      Error 404--Not Found
      From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:
      10.4.5 404 Not Found
      The server has not found anything matching the Request-URI. No indication is given of whether the condition is temporary or permanent.

      If the server does not wish to make this information available to the client, the status code 403 (Forbidden) can be used instead. The 410 (Gone) status code SHOULD be used if the server knows, through some internally configurable mechanism, that an old resource is permanently unavailable and has no forwarding address.


      Has anyone else run into this, and if so, how did you resolve the problem?
