Most of us stumble upon the solution I described, and the only explanation I can give you is a security feature within Windows Firewall. The Firewall will allow a response that originates from your browser.

But in this case, the browser isn't open - you are attempting to connect where you have not originated the request through the browser.

The alternative (disabling Windows Firewall) is obviously out of the question. It is possible that 3rd party Firewall software provides a workaround.

In the meantime, you should probably paste a text message to document recipients advising them to copy and paste the document URL into their browser windows.
