Just a stab in the dark - the XML parser that interprets the DDX does not like certain reserved characters in file specifications ("[" is one that has caused me trouble in the past). Can you reformat the URL and remove the question mark and pipe characters as a test? For a true test of this, you would need to have the same file on the same server, but have a friendlier URL to access it.
Just had another thought: try URLEncoding it:
<PDF source="http%3A%2F%2Fformsapp3.dmz.far.org%2Fpublic%2Fgetfile%2F%3Ffile_id%3D405819%7C228 1536" />
So I changed that URL to not have any funky characters:
but for some reason I'm still getting that error. Going to the URL directly renders the PDF correctly.
Not sure what to try next.

I'd try the following things:
- Try to determine if the problem is the filename or the file. Try using another simple file in place of the one that you have today, under the same name. Or change to a simple file at a simple name.
- Check the PDF file to see if it contains errors. You can do this with the preflight tools in Acrobat.
- At some point, you may want to consider opening a support case for this.
