I am having problems opening a microsoft word document in a browser from a link from a intranet website. I have setup a similar website from my local computer and had someone from the network open the document from their browser and it open and display fine... The message it displayed when it couldn't open the document is as follow: "Can't open or find Internet site."
There isn't any permission issues on the server where the intranet website resides. So it should open fine. Unless, I need to install a copy of Microsoft Word on the server. But the client should beable to view it on their browser as long as they have the microsoft word plugin installed on IE and the application installed on their computer.

Are you sure that the link is correct? Remeber that it is also case sensitive.  Check to make sure what you are typing into your address bar is the same case as the path and the filename of the .doc

yeh, i'm sure it's right. As the filename is stored in the database and retrieved as the filename in the path. It pops up a window asking if I want to save or open. But it just doesn't save or open the file. After few seconds, it just says can't open internet site.
