Hello, I'd like a user to be able download a file from a file server on my LAN.
Using <a href="file://server/directory/filename"> works ok, but this simply displays the file in the browser and I want to force the download dialog box to appear.

So now i have <a href="download.php?file=filename">, and i want to do something like fopen("file://server/directory/filename",rb") but i just get an invalid argument warning.
Am i on the right track?Is there a way around this?
