Opening an RDP file from website not working using chrome

I've linked an RDP file on a website which give users the option to "open" or "save". The "open" option works fine using Internet Explorer but when using Google Chrome it just opens a new page with the connection details on it. Why is this?

Hi,

Since IE can download the file, I am assuming that the proper content-type and content-disposition headers exist.

Ensure you have added the mime types within HTACCESS (AddType application/x-rdp rdp) to force the download.
If that is not the issue, there is an AllowOverride directive somewhere in your web server’s configuration preventing the changing of MIME types.
 
When set to None, htaccess files are completely ignored.
When set to All, any directive which has the htaccess Context is allowed in htaccess files.

Cheers

Forcing the addition of the MIME type via .HTACCESS fixed the issue.
