We are using mosaic here at work to view our own documents,
frameMaker docs, info files etc. All of the files are local to
our network - we have no www internet connection.

Whenever Mosaic tries to view a file, it first copies it to /tmp and calls
it or something similar. This would be fine, but some for some
of our non-html files this renaming breaks the hypertext links within the

Is there any way I can stop mosaic from copying the file and get it to
access the actual file?

BTW we don't run any kind of httpd server either.
