How to export a file

I am trying to export a file from an application running on a server. The file consists of a list of monitored servers and their status's. There is an export button, and when I select it, I get the message from the browser that it is unable to download the file from localhost. I turned off McAfee and still have the issue. Full error: "unable to download file.jsp from localhost. Unable to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later.". the hosts file is not used for this application.

If it is just a single file, what about right click|Copy?

Is this happening with other files or just this one?

It is happening with any attempt to export from this application. It's the function that isn't working, not that particular document

The way the lists are formatted, you can't do a copy/paste, and can't select more than one item at a time.

I got this working. It ended up being and issue with IE. I went into tools->internet options->advanced->security and unchecked "Do not save encrypted pages to disk".
