IIS 5.1 Problem



  • 1. WebDAV on Win2K vs. Win2K3
    Other than the obvious suggestions (i.e., enabling the appropriate web service extension in IIS 6.0), can anyone tell me what differences there are between IIS 5 and IIS 6 with regards to WebDAV? I have a third- party WebDAV client that works fine on Win2K, but refuses to work properly with Win2K3 (you can see files, but can't save files back--I've checked IIS virtual directory permissions as well as NTFS permissions). Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Scott Lowe Mercurion Systems, Inc.
  • 2. updating drivers
    I just installed SBC DSL and am getting a message that my device driver for "Effiecient Networks Enterne P.P.P.oE Adapter" is preventing the machine from entering standby. How do I update this driver. I am not very computer savvy so any help is greatly appreicaited. Thanks a ton.
  • 3. CGI and IIS
    How do I get IIS to recognize CGI files so it's displays them, not downloads them? This problem has been driving me nuts... anyone have any ideas? Thanks, Justin
  • 4. Please read
    All, This may seem inappropriate but my butt is on the line, so please read on. I have 2 developers who have domain admin rights in a windows 2000 environment. I discovered on Friday that these 2 have been creating a VPN tunnel to another companies network and having several machines on that network interact with one of our machines on the internal network. I escalated this issue to our collective supervisor. I know what his response was and I also know what mine was. I can guarantee that there is going to be a big turf war over this one and so I seek your oppinions. Does this have the potential to become a large security issue? Thanks all.

IIS 5.1 Problem

Postby Joe Delphi » Tue, 09 May 2006 01:07:36 GMT


       I am running Windows XP Professional and IIS 5.1 on my home computer.
I am developing an ASP.NET website using Visual Studio 2003.

       I have started getting an error - "HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server
Error" everytime I attempt to open one of my web application projects.
This is effecting all of my projects.  I know the problem has something to
do with IIS, but not sure what.   I have stopped and re-started IIS, but
there is no change.

       Can anyone help me resolve this error?

1.ASP file upload with IIS 5.1 problem


I have a standard WinXP Pro/IIS 5.1/ASP 3.0/MS Access setup at home,
which I use to develop web apps as a hobby.

I'm trying to upload stuff from a html form's file input field and
handle it with the MetaBuilders.FileUp.wsc component, which I used all
the time at work (Win2000 Server/IIS 5.0) and worked fine.

The files are uploaded correctly, and I can save them wherever I want
- so permissions seem to be set properly - but here is the problem:
after a few uses of this script, the thing hangs, and I end up getting
a 403.9 - too many users... error.

I fished around the Google groups search about this, and it seems to
have happened to other people, but I couldn't find a definitive
answer. It seems to have something to do with the code eating up HTTP
connections - IIS 5.1 is limited to 10 or 11 of those.

At first, I thought that it was the FileSystemObject that ate these
connections, but even if I don't save the file to the file system, the
same thing happens. I checked, and the only time the FSO object is
used within the fileup component is when the save() and saveas()
methods are called, which I do not do.

Before people tell me these:

1) No, it has nothing to do with antivirus software, since I have none
installed. (Yes, I live dangerously...)

2) No, there are not too many people hitting the web app - I am the
only one connected to it, it's on my home network.

3) No, I don't want to buy a server OS with a "real" web server.

4) I doubt it has anything to do with my ASP code, since I religiously
close connections and destroy objects, and especially since the code
ran well on PWS...

The practical implication of this issue is that IIS 5.1 cannot be used
to serve anything using file uploads. I have a hard time believing
this is by design, since it seriously impedes any real development

Anyways, any insight would be most welcome.

2.IIS 5.1 Problems.....Help!!!!!

I just re-installed XP profesional on my computer with IIS 5.1 and
visual studio .net.

When I right click on the default web-site in the IIS management
console and select properties nothing happens.

When I try to open my project in VS I get the following error:

Parser Error Message: It is an error to use a section registered as
allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This
error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an
application in IIS.

Source Error: 

Line 42:           "Forms", "Passport" and "None"
Line 43:     -->
Line 44:     <authentication mode="Windows" /> 

I think it has to do the to the permissions but I cannot see the
properties to fix it.

Any help would be appreicated.

3.Serious IIS 5.1 Problem

4.Peculiar IIS 5.1 problem - Hangs on static content but NOT dynamic content

Ok, I've been racking my head on this problem for a full week, and
nothing I have tried has solved it.

To put it simply, on IIS 5.1 on Windows XP Pro SP2, whenever I access a
simple asp file (like a countdown to the year 3000 calculation in
years, days, minutes, etc.), it serves fine.  I can even make a .shtml
file with no dynamic content and it will serve.  Even an asp file with
all static content will serve.

Now, whenever I try to load a .txt file, or .html, or .jpg or anything
static... I get the ding sound on my computer and it says it's loading
forever.  The first time I go to Command Prompt to do an IISRESET,
it'll attempt to stop and fail with:

Attempting stop...
Restart attempt failed.
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely
 (2147943453, 8007041d)

I do IISRESET again, and it will succeed.  I can then do the same
things again, and once a non-dynamic extension loads, it hangs again.

Here's what I've tried so far:

I've gotten IISdebug tools from Microsoft, and have the IIS crash
detection tool running.  It logs all the crashes into small log files.
Here's an exerpt from a file:

#Fields: date time src-ip src-port dst-ip dst-port cs-version cs-method
cs-url sc-status s-site s-reason
2006-04-29 12:13:27 1067 80 HTTP/1.1 GET
/forclass/test.html - 1 Connection_Abandoned_By_Inetinfo_Crash
2006-04-29 12:13:12 1067 80 HTTP/1.1 GET
/forclass/countdown.asp 200 1 Request_Completed
2006-04-29 12:13:00 1066 80 HTTP/1.1 GET
/forclass/test.shtml 200 1 Request_Completed

I have also tried removing and reinstalling IIS, this did nothing (not
to mention I'll have to reconfigure .NET to work on this now)

I have tried running SFC.EXE and restoring any damaged, corrupt, or
improperly changed files, then rebooted (and this also involved the
convoluted(sp?) task of slipstreaming SP2 files onto a new install CD,
which was even more fun since it was a Dell OEM install... but I
digress).  After SFC failed to solve the problem, I uninstalled and
reinstalled IIS again.  Nope.

I also remembered having Norton Antivirus on the system before, and
remembering that some people had problem with script blocking, I
reinstalled it and unchecked the "block malicious scripts" box.  That
didn't work either, and I was also able to do the basic asp files
before reinstalling Norton.

I also have AVG Free antivirus, this does not come with script blocking
in the Free version however.  Also note at the beginning I only had AVG
Free installed, so having two antivirus products on my computer is not
affecting this issue in any perceivable way.

The only firewall I have is the WindowsXP Firewall, and that's not
doing anything to it either (otherwise I wouldn't even get ASP pages).

My basic system setup is as follows:
Dell Inspiron 9100 laptop with 1.0 GB RAM and a 100GB HD (at least 40GB
Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 2
Internet Information Systems 5.1
Up to date on all Microsoft Updates.
Norton Antivirus and AVG Free Antivirus running
Windows XP Firewall

Also, IUSR permissions are set properly, and I also checked IWAM
permissions to be on the safe side.

I'm at a loss, and I'm beginning to wonder if it's even IIS that's
fouling this up.  I REALLY don't want to have to nuke and pave the
entire system, as I'll be reinstalling forever. (plus I have no idea
where a couple cd's I need are atm...)

If anyone can help me with this, I'd be very grateful, been dying to
try my hand at some ASP.NET v 2.0 and with this issue occuring, I'm at
a standstill.  Thanks in advance!

5.Wierd IIS 5.1 Problem (Win XP Pro Webserver)

I'm having a very strange, to me at least, problem with my web server.  I am
running MS Windows XP Pro with IIS 5.1.  My internet connection is broadband
running through a Netgear internet router.  All HTTP traffic coming into the
router is redirected to the webserver.

The problem is that no one off-site seems to be able to get to the website.
When they try, they get a pop-up dialog to enter a username and password.
The website security is setup to allow anonymous access, so I'm not sure why
this is happening.  All machines on my local LAN can get to the website just
fine.  "Sometimes" some off-site users can get there, but not usually.

Looking at the logs, things got a little more confusing to me.  The router
logs show traffic coming in from off site and getting re-directed to the
webserver.  However, the IIS logs on the webserver show no traffic at all.
The only thing that shows up in them is local traffic on the LAN.

Any insight would be GREATLY appreciated.
