Keep in mind that you will need to know the address of your FTP server, and you cannot upload files to an FTP server if you don't have explicit permission to do so. Type "This PC" into the Windows search bar. Click This PC. Click Computer. Click Add a network location. Add the FTP server info and click Finish.

Uploading Files (C#)
Tips and Warnings. Related Articles. Article Summary. Method 1 of Understand when you want to use an FTP client. Although both Windows and Mac computers have FTP functionality built-in, the tools are rather limited. If you're going to be uploading a lot of files and need features like queuing and upload resuming, you'll want to use an FTP client to connect to the server.
Download and install an FTP client. There are tons of FTP clients out there, many of which are free. One of the most popular free clients is FileZilla, which is an open-source FTP client available at filezilla-project.
FileZilla can be installed on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Create a new connection.For those who of you that are having problems with logging client addresses in their server logs because you are running your web servers behind a proxy of some sort, never fear, your solution is here. For those that don't, I already discussed in my previous posts about what the X-Forwarded-For header is so feel free to click back into those to read about it.
Back in September, I wrote and posted a bit ISAPI filter that extracted the X-Forwarded-For header value and replaced the c-ip value client ip that is stored in the server logs. Lots of folks have found this useful over time and I was eventually asked for a bit version which I posted about in August, IIS7 introduced the concept of IIS Modules that are more integrated into the whole pipeline and was told that Microsoft is recommending folks move in that direction.
Well, the answer was "probably not", but now it's changed to a "yes"! I loaded up the test C project to see if I could get it working. In a matter of minutes I had a working module that intercepted the event when logging occurs.
The only problem was that from managed code, I could find no way to actually modify the values that were passed to the logging processor.
The new Http Module hasn't had much testing done so please test it out before you roll it out into production. I've made the source available as well if you find an issue and care to fix it. Just make sure you pass back the fixes to me B.
The filter will require installation into IIS in order for you to be able to add it to your applications. Both distributions include a readme. Make sure you use the Release builds for the appropriate platform x86 or x64 unless you are in need of some troubleshooting as the Debug build will dump a lot of data to a log file.
The module supports customizable headers if you are using something other than X-Forwarded-For. Instructions for using that are in the readme. If you have any issues with using this, please let me know on this blog. Keep in mind that this is an unsupported product, but I'll do my best to fix any issues that come up. I'm even open to enhancements if you can think of any.

The Answer Well, the answer was "probably not", but now it's changed to a "yes"!Server computers are the lifeblood of any network.
Servers provide the shared resources that network users crave, such as file storage, databases, e-mail, Web services, and so on. Scalability: Scalability refers to the ability to increase the size and capacity of the server computer without unreasonable hassle.
If at all possible, equip your servers with far more disk space, RAM, and processor power than you currently need. One reason is reliability. When a client computer fails, only the person who uses that computer is affected.
When a server fails, however, everyone on the network is affected. The less-expensive computer is probably made of inferior components that are more likely to fail. Availability: This concept of availability is closely related to reliability. When a server computer fails, how long does it take to correct the problem and get the server up and running again?
Server computers are designed so their components can be easily diagnosed and replaced, which minimizes the downtime that results when a component fails. In some servers, components are hot swappable, which means that certain components can be replaced without shutting down the server. Some servers are designed to be fault-tolerant so that they can continue to operate even if a major component fails.
Service and support: Service and support are factors often overlooked when picking computers. If a component in a server computer fails, do you have someone on site qualified to repair the broken computer? If not, you should get an on-site maintenance contract for the computer.
Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It only takes a minute to sign up.
During our production builds, a very large 10 megabyte static content file in the root directory will sometimes be locked by IIS and cannot be deleted by the clean task. This is presumably because it is being actively served to one or more clients at the time.
However, this does not release the file - we have to restart IIS to get the process to relinquish its lock. Simply stopping and starting the individual website is definitely not working to release the file lock. There are tools, such as Sysinternal's Process Explorer, that can find and forcibly close file handles, however the state and behaviour of the application both yours and, in this case, IIS after doing this is undefined.
Some won't care, some will error and others will crash hard. The correct solution is to take the outage and allow IIS to cleanly release locks and clean up after itself to preserve server stability. I use a little tool called "Handle" to do this. You basically pass it the name of the file that's locked and it tells you what processes are using it:. You might struggle to work that in to a build script without a wrapper program to parse the output but hopefully this will help. I'm not sure if you mean the compilation of aspx files in temporary assemblies.
We are using ASP. This way I never experienced file locks. I'm trying this out now: Apparently there could be issues with file locking if you have indexing activated on the directory.
This is IIS 6. Process Monitor should help you with your investigation, here's an example from Mark's blog the guy that wrote the tool on how to find the file handle. You may want to try this Unlocker tool to automate your unlocking at a file handle level.
Not the answer, but a workaround idea in case there is no way to "unlock" that file without restarting IIS server:. You have to create an new folder name though or switch between two names.IIS is a web server that runs on the Microsoft. Version 10 is the most current. The internet is good.
And the internet cannot exist without web servers. But what exactly is a web server? A web server is a process for hosting web applications. The web server allows an application to process messages that arrive through specific TCP ports by default.
Assuming the default configuration and TLS is configured for your web application, the web server will receive all inbound traffic to ports 80 and What the web server does with the traffic from there depends. There are countless options for how the web server can process those requests.
The two main process models for web servers are to either handle all requests on a single thread, or to spawn a new thread for each request. Although the single-thread model Node. The thread-per-request model that IIS and its lightweight cousin IIS Express uses will grab a thread from a thread pool for each request. Web servers typically handle requests using a request-response pattern.
The client sends a request and receives a response if all goes well. HTTP protocol is the ubiquitous choice when communicating between a client and web server over the internet. IIS is rich with features.
NET web applications and static websites. There are built-in authentication options such as Basic, ASP. NET, and Windows auth. The latter is useful if you have a Windows Active Directory environment—users can be automatically signed into web applications using their domain account.
Other built-in security features include TLS certificate management and binding for enabling HTTPS and SFTP on your sites, request filtering for whitelisting or blacklisting traffic, authorization rules, request logging, and a rich set of FTP-specific security options. One key feature of IIS is the application pool. An invaluable feature is remote management. You can script everything, which is great if you like the power that comes with being able to do so.Skip to main content.
HTTPS is a secure communications channel that is used to exchange information between a client computer and a server. IIS includes its own certificate request tool that you can use to send a certificate request to a certification authority. This tool simplifies the process of obtaining a certificate. If you use Apache, you must obtain the certificate manually.
In both IIS and Apache, you receive a certificate file from the certification authority, which you must configure on the computer. However, in IIS, you can configure and manage certificates by using the Directory Security tab of the Web site or folder properties.
Log on to the Web server computer as an administrator. Click Startpoint to Settingsand then click Control Panel. Select the Web site from the list of different served sites in the left pane.
Right-click the Web site, folder, or file for which you want to configure SSL communication, and then click Properties. Click the Directory Security tab. Click Edit. Click Require bit encryption to configure bit instead of bit encryption support. To allow users to connect without supplying their own certificate, click Ignore client certificates. Alternatively, to allow a user to supply their own certificate, use Accept client certificates.
To configure client mapping, click Enable client certificate mappingand then click Edit to map client certificates to users.
If you configure this functionality, you can map client certificates to individual users in Active Directory. You can use this functionality to automatically identify a user according to the certificate they supplied when they access the Web site. You can map users to certificates on a one-to-one basis one certificate identifies one user or you can map many certificates to one user a list of certificates is matched against a specific user according to specific rules.
The first valid match becomes the mapping. Click OK.Home IIS. Last post Jul 27, AM by qbernard. I also have another server running Windows that stores images to be used by the two web servers. I store the images in a central location so I don't have to keep multiple copies of the images or bother with synchronizing them between servers.
The web site can read and display the images just fine but the problem is when the users try to upload the files, which they get access denied. My environment is NOT a domain but just stand alone servers. I guess I have some security setting misconfigured. The server hosting the images has a share called AppFiles pointing to a directory on this system.
Reading works, writing doesn't. Any idea? Jul 14, PM jeff zina.
I agree. This is probably the problem but I am out of ideas as to what account needs these permissions. If the directory is on the local IIS system it works fine, so it seems to me it is a security issue since we are NOT on a domain, but not sure what needs to be done. We have spent many hours on this so far, I figured someone on this list would have come up against this before or suggested a best implementation.
You need to grant that particular user, how to do you specific the connection user? Cheers, Bernard Cheah Reply jeff zina. Jul 15, AM jeff zina. NET to run under an account hat has access.
Test the access by logging in as that account. I have set the permissions on the share and on the file system to be this user. It does not work in this scenario.
