Why rwservlet as default filename instead of Report name?

I am  trying to execute Oracle  report through the web interface. I get a File download dialog box that asks if you want to
Open, Save or Cancel:
The Dialog also displays:
File Name: rwservlet
Type:  Unknown File Type
From: <<Server Name>>
key map is:

Key1: %* server=appserver userid=xxxs/xxx@xxxx report=D:\Reports\sample.rdf destype=cache  desformat=rtf
Im trying to figure out why the File Name is rwservlet? Is there any way to prompt the user reportname as filename instead of rwservlet as filename?

How to invoke a Report?

Look at this placed as URL in a Browser:



oracle-pc.de.icw.int:7778  is the name and port of the Reports server
reports  is the directory where the component resides
rwservlet  is the program

everything other are parameters sent to the report:

module=general.rdf   is the report definition

I am invoking the report same way. But desformat is rtf format. Whenerer i invoke the report it is prompting Open/Save options. If i try to save by default it is showing the name as rwservlet.rtf. I want to display <<report definition.rtf>> In this example i want to see general.rtf as the report name.

Yes, really it asks where to store the file.
Possibly there is a system parameters of the report for the file name.
Investigate the system parameters.
