    I am an employee at Andromeda Software, and we are having problems with users trying to download our demos using Safari. Does anyone know any issues with this. If you would like to test, go to www.andromeda.com and then choose Demos on the left side. You can put anything into the form page, and then choose a Mac demo, or for that matter any demo. Thanks for any input

    could be because you're using FTP links. Not sure how safari treats them, you may need to put the anonymous FTP credentials in the url, like so:

    Code:
    ftp://username:password@domain.com/path/to/download/file.bin
    One thing worth checking is to see whether your webserver is set to treat .bin files as binary files. It should be, by default, but stranger things have happened! You should be able to set this in an .htaccess file (provided you're running Apache)

    Yeah, I get a 'no permissions to read file' when I try to download so the anonymous FTP above might be the problem.
