HFS ~ HTTP File Server / Hosting and PDF viewing
« on: January 18, 2022, 09:52:43 PM »
Hello people !

I use HFS to host JPG and PDF files, a (not so) recent change in ios13 made it impossible to view a PDF file inside a webviewer. Installed of showing the PDF, it will try to download it. The user is asked to download the file. It works, the file get downloaded.

I use Filemaker Go and it relies on the Safari engine in it webviewer. So now a simple URL that was working before, no longer works. The URL in Safari will ask me to download, in Filemaker, the webviewer is not and I DON'T want the user to be able to download the file (contract archive).

Abode just releases a new API to view a PDF, it works perfectly. The only problem, it’s not working with HFS.

In my log, I see the request for the file, but it never gets download and I have an error in the API preview, can't view preview.

demo of the API

Problem with HSF configuration ? The API that is not working with HFS ?

So that we're clear, the URL is not protected with a log in, if I enter this URL in Chrome, the PDF file gets downloaded.


HFS ~ HTTP File Server / Easy solution from URL

I'm a very basic user, I setup HFS on a server to be able to open  scanned JPG and PDF from a mobile apps.

I use Filemaker, locally I open the file with the network path and it work fine, but on the FMGo mobile version, I can't download a file so the only way that I have found was using a web viewer with an URL and it works like a charm.

My problem is: I don't want users to have to login, just one click and the jpg load.
Setup with no user/psw... everybody that scans my IP and put the right port will have a view of my files
locally tested work in Filemaker web viewers and in Chrome
On mobile Safari, that display a security warning (Phishing) and it the prevent FMGo web viewer to display the file (I can't tap on the "continue anyway", it's just blank)

Beside http://user:psw@ is there another way to send credentials to HFS ?

I've read about Ajax... I don't know this and I think it will need to be on a web page, not in URL ?!?!
