    Question URL Links from UNIX to IIS

    I've set the link up as file:///M|/folder/folder/file.xlsx Link doesn't work.


    I've also tried

    file:///M:\folder\folder\file.xlsx

    file:///M/folder/folder/file.xlsx

    file://M/folder/folder/file.xlsx

    None of these work.

    What am I doing wrong?

    I'm using IE8 and dreamweaver CS5 on a Windows 7 system.

    I don't really know why you are using that weird method but I suspect you meant to write: file:///M://xxxx/xxxx/file.xlsx

    If you've copied the file locally to a Windows system, then you'd have to use a Windows path:
    C:\blah\blah\blah

    If it's online, it will externally always use UNIX-style paths:
    domain.com/path/to/file

    Even if the server is IIS, if you are trying to reach the file *externally* there will be UNIX-style urls. This is why even though there are plenty of IIS servers out there on the web, all web URLs are still domain.com/path/to/file

    Internally from a Windows machine to local IIS server, I have no idea, but I'd think it would be 100% Windows-style paths (so no file:/// stuff).
