404 Error on .asp file RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-965198714 posted

    I am migrating some simple asp and asp.net apps from Server 2008R2 to a fresh install of Server 2016.

    I did the following:

    • Installed IIS and added .NET 3.5 as a feature.
    • Copied an app folder from old server to c:\inetpub\wwwroot\myappfolder
    • Granted full rights to the above folder for everyone (just for initial setup/testing purposes)
    • In IIS, I set the Default Application Pool .NET CLR Version to .NET CLR Version v.2.0.50727
    • I converted the app folder into an application using the default application pool

    When I'm on the server, I'm able to right-click on the application and select Manage Application->Browse and it works great. http://webserver/myappfolder/Default.asp works great.

    However when I'm on a client computer and try to visit http://webserver/myappfolder or even http://webserver/myappfolder/Default.asp I receive a 404 error. I have tested a variant of http://webserver/myappfolder/test.png and it works great. It doesn't appear to be a permissions/bindings/dns issue, but for some reason it won't execute an asp file when a client is accessing.

    Any ideas on how to resolve?
