This is strange, wonder if anyone else has come across it...

 User put a link to a sitefinity document into a pptx. When you click the link fiddler shows me it 302s the user over to login...even though they are logged in.  To validate I can just change the url to be the site root and it loads (protected site).  If I then take the url itself and paste it into the loads.  If we convert the pptx to a pdf and click the link, it loads...

 What would cause a link ONLY from a pptx to react differently, any idea?

On the 302 the user agent is msoffice
Accept: */*

But in the browser it's firefox (or whatever)...and direct in browser works

  **EDIT** Found the problem, office doesn't share cookies
