at work, the file is nowhere to be found on my Webserver configured as Localhost. Yes , Ive tried using its DNS Name:

Rebol send the file to your web server at tcp port 80 as bits and bytes. What the webserver does with those bits and bytes, which are highly likely to not be a valid http request, is nothing. It might send back a client error message, but Rebol has not been told to look for it. Andrew Martin ICQ: 26227169
