Open attachments

I experience a weird behaviour. While trying to open an attachment I receive an error "operation timed out". It seems like I am the only one. I f I log on on another machine, I dont have the error. Any idea what happened?

Re: Open attachments

Well I guess your machine is trying to FTP the attachment back from the server and maybe it times out? But whether there are settings to control this I'm not sure?

Looks like a wague error. Check whether you can connect to the FTP port of your attachment server, from your desktop. You can also (always) try clearing your cache/profile (ov OVSD)and re-connecting after that.

Thanks for your help guys. I solved it, since we are connected to the server via vpn my user did not have the rights to point to the ftp directory. Thanks anyway
