  • User-633394048 posted
    i have created a my simple HTML page to Test something. It has 2 links. First is "HTTP View" and other is "FTP View" as HTTP View FTP View (Note intentionally change href to hrf so it displays code instead of a link) Both links works fine when and image displays properly with HTTP and FTP View. Now i have changed image with a .3df file as HTTP View FTP View now http view displays 3DF file properly but FTP view shows error prompt as Sorry Can't directly open file: ftp://imran:imran@localhost/MySite/model.3df Please publish to 3DF(Click help for Detail) Onething to clear that for displaying .3df file, we need ModelPress Plugin. I have already installed this plugin. So if i open .3df file in browser directly it displays properly. So no issue with plugin. Issue is when i open .3df through FTP. Any suggestion about FTP. thanks Imran Ghani.

    Interesting.... :) 'Sorry Can't directly open file: ftp://imran:imran@localhost/MySite/model.3df Please publish to 3DF(Click help for Detail) ' in this the msgs show in the brower ? if yes, have you click on the help button ? I would assume in IE, the MIME handling portiong would be the same for ftp and http. but in your case, it's not.

    No no its not displaying in browser. The message is like a javascript alert or confirm. I can't understand following "I would assume in IE, the MIME handling portiong would be the same for ftp and http. but in your case, it's not." Can u Please elaborate a bit more extent. thanks Imran Ghani.

    You meant, browser alerts, right ? that's not javascript, it just pure html syntax. anyway - what I meant was. when you use link via http - it works right ? then the second link is ftp:// so it's ftp link. but both are via IE (html page), so I would assume the handling of MIME type. which is the .3df would be the same.
