No response from FTP server when submitting a complete PDF
Posted on 2004-11-18
I am trying to submit a PDF form that has been filled in by a client of ours by using the submit form action of a button object on the form. The client uses IE 6.0 to view the PDF and has the full version of Acrobat 5.0 on thier system. When the client clicks the submit button IE reports HOST CONTACTED, WAITING FOR REPLY. After a brief time, IE reports DONE, but when I look on the server the PDF is submitting to, it's a FTP server our company has setup, there is no file. I assume that IE is timing out and just generically reports done. The submisson is the complete PDF document, not FDF data or HTML. I also have verified the URL in the properties of the submit button as I originally placed the PDF form on our FTP server with a seperate button to app.alert the URL of the current document. It's that URL that I used in the properties of the submit form button.
Is there some setup on our FTP server that may be prohibiting the form submission?
Any other ideas what may be wrong?
