hi,
Here is my code.

<%    require 'rubygems'
      require 'zip/zipfilesystem'
      content = ""
      content += "[InternetShortcut]\n"
      content += "URL=http://www.mysite.com/"
      content += "\nIconFile=http://www.mysite.com/favicon.ico\n"
      File.delete("#{RAILS_ROOT}/public/ins_test/InsShortcut.zip") if
File.exist?("#{RAILS_ROOT}/public/ins_test/InsShortcut.zip")
      Zip::ZipFile.open("#{RAILS_ROOT}/public/ins_test/InsShortcut.zip",
Zip::ZipFile::CREATE){
        |zipfile|
        zipfile.file.open("MySite.url", 'w') { |f| f.puts "#{content}" }
      }
      File.chmod(0777, "#{RAILS_ROOT}/public/ins_test/InsShortcut.zip")


      %>
      <a href="/ins_test/InsShortcut.zip">download the shortcut icon
(zipped)</a>

local - OS(ubuntu 8.04) When I download the zipped file in both IE &
firefox it is working properly.

Server - OS(red hat 5.2) In firefox zipped file is downloading properly
but not in IE.

I am not able to understand the situation, is it because of OS or my
code.

Advance Thanks.
Raju
