    I am having a problem linking a .pdf that is in our files to a link on our live site. The link works but the .pdf never loads - the page just times out.

    Here is the HTML for the link I am using:
    <p><a sfref="~/Training/Documentation/document.pdf" href="/rmsite/Training/Documentation/document.pdf">Document Name</a>-<em>Text Description.</em></p>

    I have other PDFs linked using this code on different pages but I do not know why this file isn't working. I thought it may be because it was 30 pages long but then I cut it down to 1 page and it still didn't work!

    Any guidance appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Hello Meredith Bollinger,

    Try increasing maxRequestLength and Server.ScriptTimeout for a page inside Page Init event and reset the value in Page Unload event.

    Sincerely yours,
