  • 1. The page cannot be displayed instead of exception
    Team, When my web service throws an exception and I am debugging on my PC - I get the exception back in my browser fine. My web.config shows <customErrors mode="Off"/> and this is working well. However, when I test this web service on the deployment server, I only get 'The page cannot be displayed' instead of the exception. That is when I call the web service on the deployment server locally or remotely. The web.config on the deployment server also has <customErrors mode="Off"/>. Please advise as to why I am not seeing the exception info on the deployment server even though <customErrors mode="Off"/>. Not only can I not get it remotelyi, I can't get it locally. THank you, Tim
  • 2. a webservice to authenticate the users against
    I need to create a webserivce which is able to talk to the following components: 1) Another webservice which is written by java and talks to its own backend database to authenticate the users 2) Directly talk to a sql server database containg a table to store username and passwords 3) Directoly talks to an Oracle Databse containg a table to store username and passwords 4) Can query our internal Active Directory to authenticate our organization's staff The reason I choose a web service is that we want to create a sort of signle sign on startegy for all our applicationsm to use this webserivce to authenticate the users against. my webserivce needs to be secure and also vey expandable to span future added components. Is there soehting similar out there or can anyone give me some idea? I really appreciate it. Thanks Lester J-T
  • 3. Connecting to wrong web service
    Hi, Need some help. I have two copies of the same web services project deployed in the IIS. The web services are being used by two different applications. Suppose the web services are WS-1 and WS-2. And the windows applications using them are App-1 and App-2. I have referenced WS-1 in App-1 and WS-2 in App2.... But since the WS-1 and WS-2 are exact copies, sometimes App-1 invokes methods in WS-2 and App-2 invokes methods in WS-1. Can anyone suggest why this could happen, and what is the resolution for the problem... Any help would be highly appreciated... Thanks, Yogesh.
  • 4. Document literal - schema validation/XSLT on SOAP body
    A major issue I've been facing - It is often said that in document literal style - one has a lot of flexibility and one can do two things specifically - 1. Validate the SOAP body against a schema 2. Use an XSLT stylesheet to modify the SOAP body. At what point can the stylesheet be applied - since the XML gets converted to objects before I can do anything with it..? Any insight is appreciated. Thanks!

FrontPage Server Extensions are extension programs/features to IIS that give 
it features it doesn't normally come with.  IIS can grant VS.NET access to a 
virtual directory using these extensions or the normal file share that the 
folder has.  It seems like the production server you want to deploy to, has 
not been configured to use the FPSE as your local machine has.

You can always just manually move the files.

1.UNC vs Mapped Drive - Mapped drive works but UNC does not

I am trying to load a Html into a HTML Docuemt Object in my client widow. 
Everything works fine if i used a mapped drive. But the application breaks if 
i use the UNC directly. Looks like when the document is accessed through UNC 
it take a while to load it and probably gets timed out.

Does anybody have a clue about this issue. Some said that disabling the 
NORTON ANtI Virus Auto protect will help it. But went in vain.

2.UNC File copy MUCH FASTER than mapped UNC drive copy?

Any idea why a file copy from a WindowsXP/2000 client machine would exibit
any difference between a mapped drive using UNC and a straight UNC file
copy? It appears that if I map a drive using a UNC [M:\share (which is
\\server\share)] it is MUCH SLOWER than if I just copy these files to
\\server\share ? These are small files. I even notice a big difference in
Office File saves and background saves using a drive letter as opposed to a
UNC. I have set all my Office users to use UNC file save location


3.Frontpage on sites with content on UNC path...


I am creating a web site on Windows 2003 with the content 
stored on the file server (UNC path). The file server and 
the web server belong to same domain and I am using pass 
thru authentication.

The site browsing works fine. However, when I try to 
connect to the site using Frontpage client, it gives error 
saying "Server error: The server extensions were unable to 
access the file "frontpg.lck". 

The same thing works fine when the site is hosted on the 
local drive. 

NOTE: The NTFS permissions in both the cases (local 
path/UNC path) are identical.

Can anybody shade some light on this?


4.UNC paths

Hello everyone,
I am trying to setup a webpage with a map of our networked printers. I plan 
on deploying 15 or so new color devices and instead of visiting each desk 
would like the users to be able to click on the map and have the driver 

The Problem: When I type in the path to the printer the browser cannot find 
the printer, I use the following as a link


When this is used in an email and sent out the email program (Outlook) opens 
the printer and installs the driver. Can this be done on a webpage?

5.Frontpage 2002 SE with UNC paths


IIS 6.0 on win2003 std, Frontpage 2002
Content stored on win2003 std share

When I try to extend a web with FP Server Extensions I get a red exclamation
        "Warning: Your FrontPage web content is stored on a UNC share.
Anyone will be able to browse the content of your FrontPage web. To enable
FrontPage's access protection, uninstall the FrontPage server extensions,
reconfigure your Microsoft Internet Information Server to use a local
partition and reinstall the FrontPage server extensions."

      I found a few pointers in the IIS resource-kit page 1057 on how to
modify the registry to allow UNC and Domain user accounts, but I just can't
get it working...

I have added anonusergroupprefix="domainname\prefix", allowUNC="1",
nomachinegroups="1" to HKLM/..../all ports. Added the permissions for
webserver to access share, specified new anonymous user for website + basic
authentication in stead of windows integrated.. and otherwise tried to
follow the rather vague instructions on creating user accounts in AD, but I
can't get it working.

Has anybody tried this - and made it work !? I'm getting a bit desperate
here :-\
