Yes, a response redirect will work just fine as long as you pass the fully qualified URL.


Should redirect the browser to the PDF file.

Respuesta.Redirección works by sending the browser an HTTP 302 so the target can be on the same server or another server.

Of course, because if you don't specify the protocol, it assumes you're referring to some file located on the server. You need to append http:// en este caso.

Furthermore, the action "what happens" depends on user's client. If the client doesn't have Adobe Reader installed or has set his browser to save files instead of opening them, it obviously won't open. If you want to be sure that the file gets opened in the browser, you need to implement some pdf reader on your website.
