I do not know much about LANSA, but in other web languages, if the PDF file on the IFS is outside of the web directory (/www/mysite/htdocs) you cannot expose it to the web. You have two choices. 1) Place the PDF in the web directory, but this allows every web user to access this PDF if they know the path (not very secure). 2) Write a program to read the file from the IFS and pipe it to the browser. You would need to change the content type to "application/pdf".

Thank you,

Subject: [WEB400] Link to a PDF on IFS

I'm using LANSA on Iseries to run a website. The user can press a button, I
call a CLP and create a PDF and email it to the end user.

I'd like to change it to display the PDF in the browser. The PDF is on the
IFS. I know the path and file name of the PDF.

What do I have to do to change the webserver show files from a specific
directory on the IFS?

Thanks, Jack.
