iView 6 permits binary archiving, i.e. an authorized user may drag/drop any type of file
from their desktop into the archive. In order for the web server to properly serve the file

is the default behaviour when the browser does not know how to handle the file type. Even correct
configuration of the content type may not prevent this.

Otherwise it will issue this instruction: Content-Disposition: <content disposition>
Important: Enter the file extensions in lower case, and enter the content type and disposition in mixed case as appropriate.
