MIME MappingYou can extend TeleFinder's built-in MIME types using the Internet Config extension to map file extensions ( i.e. .txt ) to a specific MIME type. MIME types describe a file's content to Web Browsers.
Built-in MIME MappingsThe following MIME mappings are loaded into TeleFinder's Web Server from the tab delimited "www_mimes.config" file.
If your web site contains files that need a MIME mapping that is not listed here, you'll need to install the Internet Config extension. After installing Internet Config, open the Internet Config application.
Remove "www_mimes.config" from TeleFinder's config folder and restart the TeleFinder Server after you install Internet Config. When Internet Config is installed, it becomes TeleFinder's primary source for MIME mappings.
If a file is not mapped by Internet Config, TeleFinder uses its internal mapping information.

Portable Document Format
Internet Config's Mapping Entry dialog contains information that TeleFinder does not use, but it may be used by other applications. TeleFinder uses the "Name", "Extension" and "MIME Type" fields only. You can leave all the other fields blank, or at their default setting.
Please refer to the Internet Config documentation for additional information about the program.
