Back from my vacation now.

Yeah, it's quite a little rats nest there. Ultimately, the problem resides with convincing Frontier to *serve* the file I want it to from a URL. I can route around everything else.

So even with a proper urlencoded path:


which properly matches the file name, I get the file not found error. Even if I did intercept the HTTP request and do it by hand, I still don't know how to provide Frontier with a reference - even the truncated 31 character name and get it to return the file.

I'll poke around and see if I can generate or retrieve the 31 char name, but so far I haven't figured out how, nor do I know if it'll work.

This is a Manila site...
