It depends on what is included in the octet-stream. An octet-stream is just a way of saying it's binary data. Some sources say that you can change the file extension to the proper type (such as .exe, .pdf, etc) and it should run - but I haven't tried it myself.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
