Look here for a few suggestions. By default it isn't possible, but since the files for IIS 6 are inside Service Pack 3 (for Windows Server 2003) you can extract them (see the link for instructions how to do that). You could also look at IIS Express.

First off, 128-bit AES is very good. The prevailing opinion is that it is secure for the future close enough to care about. Setting that aside, the reason you're getting 128-bit encryption is because that was what was negotiated. The certificate has little to do with it; the SSL cert is an RSA keypair, and there's no way that's only 128 bits. It's more ...

There are two main approaches to figuring this type of thing out. Either determine what is the common factor shared by the affected users, or what changed recently so that these users are suddenly affected. Your best bet is to approach it from both directions, as the answer ends up being a mixture of both. What Ties These Users Together? If they don't have ...

The AddType directive lets you specify what MIME type(not entirely a complete list) a given file extension should be processed as. To make an arbitrary extension be processed as HTML: AddType text/html .whatever Note that there's generally very little reason to do this sort of thing, and it mostly just introduces maintenance work.

Your robots.txt file does not appear to conform to the robots.txt specification (you must specify the user agent before the directives and I do not believe that Noindex is a valid directive). Consider the following updates: User-agent: googlebot Disallow: /Office/LocationDetails.aspx Disallow: /office/default.aspx Disallow: /Electronics/Communitylist.aspx ...

Use RewriteLog and RewriteLogLevel directives to log such activity (IIS restart most likely will be required). The higher value you put for RewriteLogLevel the more verbose/detailed it will be. If your site is busy (has lots of requests) then you will have hard times debugging it (log will become huge in a matter of seconds/minutes and it will become ...

It is not recommended to cache resources with a query string. A query string usually represents a dynamic resource. However IE and Chrome do cache based off the Cache-Control and Expires headers. Firefox should cache, however, this could be due to a weak validation i.e. no usage of Etag. Using Etag forces strong validation of the cache-control mechanism ...

Are all requests from those users slow or only some of them? Does it happen to them on all browsers? Can you write a test program, that does the same queries without a browser? Is anti-virus enabled? Firefox has safebrowsing, which first queries google if the pages you want to visit are safe. Best thing you can get is a full trace with wireshark, so you can ...

Because of the content-type header that it's spitting out. Inspect it with your favourite tool (Firebug, etc) and see what it's sending.

There are lots of bots (computer programs) that visit webpages. However, they pretend to be real users by using the user agent of a popular browser, such as IE or firefox or chrome; instead of using their own specialized user agent so the server knows they aren't real people. As a result, the IIS logs count them as real users. Google Analytics doesn't, ...

I think you have to enable https in IIS itself. The following links will help http://support.microsoft.com/?id=324069 http://support.microsoft.com/?id=298805

Have a look a godaddy's support article on nameservers (though this isn't clear on what you're supposed to do with domains registered with them and hosted with them). The information they have given you isn't correct, pinging ns1.asezo.com returns nothing, so there isn't a nameserver there. I would suggest calling support back.

It became known in 2009 that IIS had a vulnerability in that it determined filetype by the part of the filename preceeding a semicolon if there was one in the name. See this NIST description for more details.

No, you don't need to specify a DNS server on your PC, but you need to register a dynamic DNS entry for your domain, that points to the IP of your PC/network. Please remember that most internet service provider do have private and commerial contracts, where the upload speed for private internet connections it limited in most cases. Most providers even ...

Using an SSL certificate will encrypt the communication between client browsers and your website. Depending on how serious your client is about security, two questions that you might want to further consider for downloads are: 1). Can a hacker replace download files with deleterious ones? If the files are added to your site via FTP or share a common ...

There are two solutions I can think of: Find patterns in the redirects and see if you can cut the number down. For example, if you had a large chunk that redirected from one folder to another, you could match something like /folder/([A-Za-z0-9-]+) and redirect to /newfolder/$1. This might still leave a large number of redirects though. Redirect all unfound ...

You should set three A records poiting to your server IP. *.mydomains.com www.mydomain.com blog.mydomain.com Then you need to set up your Virtual Host correctly to accept requests for all three domains/subdomains (see e.g. Virtual hosting with IIS (Internet Information Services) or Setting Host Headers in IIS 6.0). Redirect needed domains to one desired ...

When I set up the DNS servers I am getting example.com is working to the site, but www.example.com isn't and is showing a 404 error. Since you're receiving a 404 error code from a server, that likely means your DNS is configured properly, but your web server is not redirecting to the same content that your non-www (root domain) is returning. Assuming ...

If anyone is curious I resolved this problem with the following syntax: <rule name="NoSSL - folder" enabled="true" stopProcessing="true"> <match url="^nossl/.*" /> <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll" trackAllCaptures="false"> </conditions> <action type="None" /> </rule> <rule name="Redirect to HTTPS" ...

From the previous times I have used it, I don't recall being prompted for a restart (although I usually install manually). The best way to verify this would be to setup a dev server and test it. This should be standard procedure before doing anything in a production environment, especially if you are concerned with downtime. Measure twice...cut once.

It doesn't look like it is required but is recommended. Best Practices for Using Web PI Follow these best practices to prevent errors or installation issues when using the Web PI. Close all programs and restart your computer. The Web PI functions by running the setup for the selected applications one after the other, as in a ...

Farseeker's suggestion is a good first step in troubleshooting (a text/html content-type would certainly produce this result) - Google Webmaster Tools should display a different error message if the sitemap file contains invalid XML. Given the temporary nature of the issue, have you checked your server logs to determine whether an error page was produced on ...

You say that this affects Excel files that are generated by your application. What about straight-up downloads? Try sticking an Excel file into your webroot manually, then downloading it. Does that come down OK? The first thing I check when I have "file type x won't download" issues is MIME types. Could something have changed when the SSL certificate was ...

First you must register your domainname with a suitable registrar. As part of this the IP addresses of 2 computers that will serve as "DNS servers" are required. Many registrars provide these servers as part of the service. Next the "DNS zone files" on those "DNS Servers" need to be updated to include a reference that basically says "www.mydomain.com is at ...

What is the request URI for the CSS file? Firefox will not cache the result when the URI contains a query string (i.e. a ? followed by parameters). According to the HTTP specifications, a browser should never cache a response from a request containing a query string unless the server explicitly allows it. Unfortunately though, Firefox and IE do not comply ...

To answer my own question, the problem was with how Internet Explorer handles compatibility mode on intranet sites. Even though my web.config and my HTML code specified to always set IE=Edge (most recent rendering engine), the Internet Explorer browser itself has ultimate control over the rendering, and its default is to have intranet sites rendered in ...

For SEO purposes you have to make a decision if you want to go with either example.com (without www.) or with www.example.com and stick with it. Do not use both. You should set up your DNS to let both point to your web server and bind your website to both host names so that both work in case your visitor types either in his browser. Then, using the ...
