Link to a pdf and open at a specific page

I want to be able to link to a pdf, and open at a certain page. This task was straightforward and worked on my machine!

From Adobe,

To target an HTML link to a specific page in a PDF file, add #page=[page number] to the end of the link’s URL.

For example, this HTML tag opens page 4 of a PDF file named myfile.pdf:

<A HREF="http://www.example.com/myfile.pdf#page=4">

Okay, now for a real example. The Triggs et al. 2000 paper is a long one, and I want to link to page 15 of the version at HAL, the start of section 4.

B. Triggs, P. F. McLauchlan, R. I. Hartley, and A. W. Fitzgibbon, “Bundle Adjustment — A Modern Synthesis,” in Vision Algorithms: Theory and Practice, vol. 1883, B. Triggs, A. Zisserman, and R. Szeliski, Eds. Berlin, Heidelberg: Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2000, pp. 298–372. doi: 10.1007/3-540-44480-7_21.

Here’s the link, for which I used address

https://hal.inria.fr/file/index/docid/590128/filename/Triggs-va99.pdf#page=15 .
