Addressing resources via file:/
Posted on 2006-07-06
we have an issue with the number of slashes used to address/identify resources on our Windows file server system.
If we address a resource (file) with file://///server/directory/.../file, MSIE and Firefox will be able to retrieve resources correctly.
Since the notation ///// seems to be not the 'standard', at least not for MSIE, we reduced to // and it worked for MSIE but not for Firefox.
Any idea, what the correct addressing is? And why?
