IIS6, Wildcard Application Mapping, and FrontPage Extensions RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-564824096 posted

    I've looked throughout these forums, but there doesn't seem to be any answers:

    While I'd love to get rid of requiring FrontPage Extensions on a heavy traffic site I host, the client requires it to administrate the site. Having just implemented Wildcard Application Mapping in IIS 6 on this site in order to provide integrated Forms Authentication security between ASP and ASP.NET resources, this breaks FrontPage extensions. Everything works like a charm, including encrypting and caching roles that are now available even to ASP, except for the loss of FrontPage. Specifically, you cannot even login to FrontPage administration (incorrect credentials).

    Has anyone gotten FrontPage to work with Wildcard Application Mapping routing through the ASP.NET 2.0 aspnet_isapi.dll?

    Do you have to use wildarcd mapping?  Why not map each different file type to protect?

    Thanks for the prompt reply. We need to use wildcard mapping because we still need for i.e. ASP to still be handled as normal after forms authentication takes place.<hints id="hah_hints"></hints> If you just map for i.e. .asp to the ASP.NET 2.0 dll, forms authentication still works great, but it doesn't make it back through to the ASP classic pipeline.

    Did you or anybody find any solution to this?

    Allowing anonymous access allows to use frontpage admin but thats not a permanent fix.

    I am looking for a fix as well.
