In order for IIS to allow access to the file at all, it needs to be assigned a MIME-type. Use application/octet-stream and the browser will almost certainly treat it as a file it can't handle itself. (You could also experiment with application/x-whatever-you-want)

There are a couple of ways this can be done. IIS7 introduced the integrated pipeline. Many IIS6 developed applications can handle running as is in the IIS7 integrated pipeline, but for the ones that can't there are a couple of options for what can be done. The easiest thing to do would be to switch the app pool the site or application is running to ...

Firefox 3.x and many others do. Can you post the full agent string that you're having problems with? As it sounds like it could be a custom script that is generating the request and pretending to be a certain agent. But is incorrectly creating the ident string. Or your check against the agent string is incorrect. Edit: The strings you posted are being ...

I'm not sure exactly what "workaround" means. It seems likely that the third party AJAX is including that string in data that is returned. Google may be finding it in either HTML or JavaScript content and then deciding that it looks enough like a URL that it should crawl it. To prevent Googlebot from crawling those URLs on your site, you could add this to ...

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 ...

Firstly IIS Rewrite (http://www.iis.net/download/urlrewrite) allows you to change how you present URLs. Secondly fix the 405's http://support.microsoft.com/kb/216493

Scott Forsyth - MVP's answer to 'Different file locations for http v https on IIS?' suggests that you look at Failed Request Tracing to help identify the fault, I'd also suggest checking the IIS logs to see exactly what is happening to the request for default.aspx, it must be going somewhere!

NO it won't, the RDP uses a specific port that is not part of the usual SEO crawling.

I have an answer for the second item for those that are interested. Create a text file with the contents below and save it with a .vbs extention. Then execute it with cscript myfile.vbs from the command-line. If you execute it as cscript myfile.vbs > output.txt it will put the results in a text file. strComputer = "localhost" Set objService = GetObject( ...

It sounds as though you will need to set up default documents for the secure site, as described in Setting Up Default Documents from the IIS 6.0 documentation: In IIS Manager, double-click the local computer, right-click the Web Sites folder or an individual Web site folder, and then click Properties. Note: Configuration settings made at the ...

The easy way to redirect could possibly lie in doing a 301 from your option 2 & 3 listed above. In essence make a default page that the user lands on and set that to automatically redirect to the desired page?

Also try, both under <system.webServer> : <validation validateIntegratedModeConfiguration="false"/> else it won't work because the Reporting Services handler invalidates this mode. then under <handlers> <add name="Reserved-ReportViewerWebControl-axd" path="Reserved.ReportViewerWebControl.axd" verb="*" ...

HTTP handlers are handled differently in IIS7 vs. IIS6. A couple of things you could try: 1) Change your app pool from 'integrated' mode to 'classic' mode (probably would not be the first choice, but will certainly get it working). 2) Reconfigure your web.config file (this is probably the route you should go). In integrated mode, http handlers need to be ...

Can you not download all the files via FTP, then use your computer to put them in a .zip file? That seems to be the only way to get the files. If you have cPanel, I think there is a tool to download a backup of the site in .zip format already.

You need to use a service like Zoneedit which not only provides DNS services but can handle dynamic IP addresses like you probably have if you're hosting your own server locally.
