Problem: VRML Files on Server Download as Text-Only

Problem: VRML Files on Server Download as Text-Only

Question:
Someone told me I have to specify a MIME encoding somewhere on my server. Would you be kind enough to tell me where on a Windows NT server Internet box I can configure this option, and do you know what I would have to input? Is it X-VRML-something world?

Answer:
I’m not an expert on NT Servers, but I can tell you it’s the MIME type you need to adjust. The MIME type for VRML is xworld/x-vrml and the MIME type for filename extension is .wrl.

To use gzip-compressed worlds add: Content-encoding:x-gzip. The matching filename extension is: .gz
