This is driving me mad.

I am trying to get a document from our own servers which has an unregistered
extension (ie 'wwd').

Indy reports a 404 error. If I change the extension to eg exe or zip it will
get it fine.

If I remove the extension altogether it also returns a 404.

Does anyone have any clue what may cause this behaviour?
