IIS and Web Service traffic RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm currently having a problem with calls to an external web service.  Traffic does not go out when my appPool is running under NetworkService account, but if I change it to my own domain account, traffic is restored and everything works fine.

    I know that NetworkService is a "least privilege" account.  Can the necessary permissions to allow outgoing traffic be changed with policy, or do I need to use (create) a different account?

    Sorry if this is not the right forum.  I looked through the list and it was the closest I could find.  Will be happy to repost if somebody knows a better place.

  • Hi,

    From your description, the issue is caused by lacking permissions for the account, if you want to add permisions for the NetworkService account or create a different account with necessary permissions, I'd suggest you ask here to get better help.

    Best Regards.
