    Hi There,
    I'm trying to get a large file sent to an engineer as a link on my page. After uploading successfully in Fetch, I cannot figure how to reach the file via web. Trying "webview" option, or manually typing in the filepath (rechecked multiple times for typos) leads to a 404 error. Specifically,
    "Not Found

    The requested URL - was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

    It seems this is a webpage / dreamhost issue, but either way some help would be good. Project deadlines await...

    Hi,

    If you select the file in the Fetch file list, and choose "Copy Web Address" from the Edit menu (or Copy Fetch Address, if Copy Web Address is not listed), what is copied to the clipboard?

    That might help me figure out the correct link.

    Thanks,

    Hi Jim,
    I found the "copy web address" from the Edit menu but how do I view clipboard contents?

    Thanks,

    You can Paste the copied web address into your reply.

    Got it.

    The above makes little sense, as in the Fetch App I have the sound file nested inside 4 folders. Hmmm

    (under info location is ftp://maks2011:@www.maks.com/maks.com/AdB_01/Music/)

    I think the correct URL is:

    http://www.maks.com/AdB_01/Music/AdB_Nar24.aiff

    To fix the WebView setup, select that file in Fetch and hold down the Option key as you click the WebView button. Then enter:

    http://www.maks.com/AdB_01/Music/AdB_Nar24.aiff

    Once you do that the Copy Web Address command should work for any file.

    Thanks,
