    Hi,

    Could you say a bit more about what you are trying to do? Do you want to offer a direct link to a file on your website?

    Thanks,

    Good morning Jim

    The kind of link I am trying to get is this, when I upload a file into Fetch, and I get the link to send to somebody, in another company, another city or wherever, and they can only click on the link and they will be accessing the file from my Fetch without having Fetch or any other pft application, or any password.
    We are receiving this kind of link, from a lot of customers and I would like to know if Fetch supports this links.

    Yes, you can do this with Fetch. The server that you upload files to has to be a web server, and you need to configure the WebView feature in Fetch so that it knows about that server (you only have to do this configuration step once, and it's fairly easy to do). Once WebView is set up, you can select any file that you've uploaded and choose "Copy Web Address" from the Edit menu to put the download link on the clipboard. That link will work with any web browser; the customer will not need to use Fetch or an FTP program.

    To learn more about configuring WebView, see this help topic:
