Thanks David

That behavior is the best i could acomplish be header() also.
But i found another way :
1. I link to a nonexiting directroy:
2. i catch 404s by htaccess redirection
3. i parse the REDIRECT_URI if the request is for a pdf in that vitual
4. if true and the file exists i include the downloadscript, which
checks for authorisation
5. else raise either authentication of 404
6. works on all browsers !!!!

thanks for your suggestions
