Patrick- The server portion of the URL you're using looks like an NT name, or at least a name in your default domain (TCP/IP, not NT) If you're doing this all on one machine (if you're running FOP on epndev0006), why not use a relative path through the file structure (i.e. src="images/Logo_Plain.gif") If you're running FOP on a different machine than IIS, perhaps the FOP box can't resolve the name epndev006.

I am looking to simply pull a logo onto my report with this code... <fo:external-graphic src="http://epndev0006/Logo_Plain.gif"/> this error is being output from FOP... [ERROR]: Error while creating area : Error with image URL: http://epndev0006/Logo_Plain.gif and no base directory is specified. The image is in the correct directory and everything is spelled correctly. The image resides in the root of my wwwroot folder and I can hit it with a browser by typing the above URL. Thanks , Patrick
