    Make an <a> to a local intranet file from a website on www

    I have an online app and I would like to link to specific file that is on the intranet, i.e. use a:

    <a href="file://C:/Documents and Settings/madwax/Desktop/top.jpg" >Click here</a>

    My browser just throws an error saying "Permission denied", is there an workaround for this?

    Thanks in advance,
    Madwax

    Certainly not using javascript. Maybe with an applet or activex control. I don't think any browsers have such poor security so as to allow access to your local drive without at least first gaining your permission.
