  • User1766237426 posted

    Ok, so, I've installed IIS v5.1 on my XP pro system.  What now?

     

    I want 2 things:  1)  A secure filedump, so I can log in anywhere, and get to vital files, and  2)  A website.  For the general public.

     

    I know how to set up TLD forwarding, with 1&1, so all I need to know is:

    1)  How to do everything,

    2)  What IP address (or how to find it out) I should forward the TLD to,

    3)  How to put a username and password on

    4)  (Later)  How to install PHP5 (Or six, whatever we're on, now) for a forum I might do, as a hobby.

    5)  Anything I need to know.

     

    Yes, this post is very vague, but I have no idea how to use the software.  It's not quite like the other M$ products...  (I.e., VB.NET EE)

     

    Thanks for looking.

    Hmmm.  Maybe do you offer static IP's?  If so, I'm interesting hosting a web server at my house and what is the various deals you offer.

    (1)  I'll do my best.

    (2) You need to get an IP address for your site, try www.no-ip.com or call your ISP about a static IP.

    (3) You will need to go into IIS Manager and configure an authentication method.  Since it seems like you just want something simple, I'd try setting up Basic Authentication.  Use it with SSL if possible since it sends credentials over the wire in clear text.

    (4) Read this http://www.iis.net/default.aspx?tabid=2&subtabid=25&i=1345

    (5) Get Vista with IIS7, we've removed artificial limits on the number of sites/connections IIS in Windows Client can support.  Plus, IIS7 is about a million times better than IIS5.1 in basically every way : )

    Thanks.  (^-^) 

    K, next bit.  "Site not found"  "No web site is configured at this address."

     

    I've mucked around a bit, and it still says the same thing.

    Yes, if you want to host more than one site - or Windows Server 2003 to get IIS6.

    K, next bit.  "Site not found"  "No web site is configured at this address."

    I've mucked around a bit, and it still says the same thing. 

    It's not clear what you've done or how you're trying to access your site.  Does http://localhost/ work from your PC?

    Thursday, March 1, 2007 6:27 PM
  • User1766237426 posted

    So if I only want one site, this will do?  Excellent.

     

    Nope, neither localhost nor 192.168.1.108 work on this when I have either [IP address] selected as (All unassigned) or 192.168.1.108.

     

    I _did_ manage to get it working once, a while back, but then it stopped again.

  • User989702501 posted

    Yes. if for one site - then XP Pro is good enough. but take note XP Pro only support up to 10 concurrent inbound connections. While vista the limit is on request processing.

    if you can't even browse http://localhost check the services status of World Wide Web publishing service, is it running ? try restart it. anything in event log ?

    This is not going to move anywhere, please provide more detail.

    a) http://localhost works? if not what are you seeing?
    b) what's the error in event viewer?

    What we are trying to do is to make sure IIS is working first, then later you can setup php, ftp, then no-ip services.

    Localhost shows "No web site is configured at this address."

    Open IIS manager and make sure the site is started.

    Okay, that fixed my original problem, but now it's telling me I'm not allowed to access the stuff.

     

    "Logon failure: user account restriction. Possible reasons are blank passwords not allowed, logon hour restrictions, or a policy restriction has been enforced."

     

    UPDATE:  I can change a setting so that it asks me for a username and password, but I don't know what they are, and there's no apparent way to set them...

     

    =[  I think I'll try that Apache for windows.

     

    Or Linux!  I have an Ubuntu disc... 

     

    UPDATE #2:  Ooh, checking through the event viewer again, and it's grown.  Alot.  There are quite a few warnings and errors floating around now, from notable software such as .NET Framework runtime, Autodesk 3ds Max, MySQL, and others.  What the hell's happened?

    You are almost there. Can you post the complete event log?  is this machine standalone or ? have you lock it down before?

    Nope, because you can't upload files here.

     

    Stanadalone.  Will be a server in a network soon.

    :) I'm not asking if it crash, I'm asking if you have previously configure any policy to lock down the settings? say logon hours, etc?

    It makes no difference to us if you use Apache or Linux.  I suspect they won't be any easier. We're just here trying to help you. With every error message you have posted so far, Google has provided me an answer. You can either search yourself or post complete and detailed messages here and we'll try to help you.

    At what point did you get that logon failure message - what were you doing?  That doesn't look like anything IIS related.

     What are some of the relevant warnings and errors you see?

    Monday, March 5, 2007 8:35 AM
  • User1766237426 posted

    In plain text, I get:  "Logon failure: user account restriction. Possible reasons are blank passwords not allowed, logon hour restrictions, or a policy restriction has been enforced."

     

    If I have a quick fiddle, I get a logon form (A little pop-up like a messagebox) and if I fiddle further, I get two seperat logons.  On for """" , and one for ""localhost"".

    Without knowing more, that sounds like an application is trying to access a database or write a file.  Have you tried just publishing a static html file and see if appears?

    I don't mean to be rude but you might want to consult with a person or a friend who is familar with Windows.  Many of the errors you seem to reporting are unrelated to IIS.  Your answers are vague and we really can't help resolve OS level errors, this is more intended for IIS related issues.

    The application one has nothing in it about IIS, and the System has many (warnings) from Tcpip.

    If you are saying the below is your source code, then this will be application issue, look at the code and see why it returns such error msgs.

     On the other hand, to ensure IIS is working, create a simple hello.html at the web root folder, then browse http://localhost/hello.html

    if this is working, meaning your IIS is working.

  • User-1853252149 posted

    The login error you see isn't a normal IIS message.  Are you logged in with an account that is a local administrator on your PC?  Have you tried using the IP address instead of localhost, something like http://192.168.1.100/hello.htm but using your system's IP address?  Maybe "localhost" is resolving to a different system.

    I'm also slightly unclear, did you delete everything in your web root except for a "Hello World!" HTML file?

    192.168.1.108 produces tthe same message, as does 192.168.1.108/hello.htm

     

    Yes, I'm a local admin.

     

    Localhost is definately this computer.

    OK, it doesn't appear IIS (or any web server is running). You would have seen somehting like this if it was:

    TCP    PWNED:http            PWNED:0                LISTENING       1234
    TCP    PWNED:https           PWNED:0                LISTENING       1234

    At you command prompt, type:

    net start w3svc

    and then give me your netstat -a -o result again.

    Typed in the net start, and it came up with:

     

    The requested service has already been started.

    More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2182.

     

    Which then came up with 

     

    The requested service has already been started.


    EXPLANATION

    You tried to start a service that is already running.

    ACTION

    To display a list of active services, type:

            NET START

     

    Regardless, I did the netstat again.

    OK, that matches to the line showing your machine listening on TCP port 1026.  Any ideas on why IIS is on port 1026?
    Thursday, March 15, 2007 2:45 PM
  • User1766237426 posted

    Not a clue.  I've only ever told it to run on 80.  Should I tell it that it's running on 1026, or should I change the 1026 to 80 somehow?

     

     This is great, I feel like I'm getting somewhere now.  (^-^ )  Thanks guys.

    Thursday, March 15, 2007 4:47 PM
  • User-823196590 posted
    Well, in the IIS console, is it set to port 1026?  If it is you should change it.  When you open the console, is the default site running?
    Friday, March 16, 2007 8:27 AM
  • User1766237426 posted

    Nope, it's set to port 80.

     

    The default site (The only one there) Is running, yes, I believe so, but it's called LoaclHost.

    After 60-some posts if you still haven't gotten an answer that works I'm not sure a forum is where you'll find one.  You're at the point where having someone physically come look at your system and setup is probably the best option.

    I second that, you probably need to get someone in front of your box who is familar with Windows.  You can always call Microsoft for assistance.  I believe a case is $250 dollars.  That is another option.

    OMG - I was gone 2 weeks - we still here ?

    LOL - now the port 12xx on http of inetinfo.exe could be w3c related RPC port, only for local usage.

    At now - I don't know even know if your IIS is running now :)  try reinstall IIS and start for begining, when hello.html works, then move on.

    I'm so lost in the thread.

    Apache sucks.  Ok, IIS may not want to show me my site, but I can't even tell it where the site is on Apache.

     

    My question:  Referring to phoning up my ISP and asking about a static IP, what exactly would I say?

    Thursday, April 5, 2007 11:22 AM
  • User989702501 posted

    Zzz.. ISP?

    Did you ISP block port 80? unless you have a deal with them on getting static IP ? well this is between you and your ISP. if you think worth it then pay for it, else switch ISP?

    Next, make sure you got your IIS working before you think about allowing visitor to access your site from the internet.

    so about your ISP question, I guess you need to talk to them and figure out the best deal.

    Hmmm.  Maybe do you offer static IP's?  If so, I'm interesting hosting a web server at my house and what is the various deals you offer.

    Hi All ,

    I also am a new comer to this Forum.

    I have a small Query.Firstly I wanted to express my deep passion for ASP.net and SQL server.

    The problem which i am facing is noboby is suggesting me how i can upgrade my IIS version from 5.1 to 6.0 or 7.0.

    I know that this might be a silly question to you.

    But for me its very very important.

     I would feel grateful if someone answers my query.

     Thnaks in advance.

    Haha, it seems I've started a topical thread.

     

    I know that IIS 7.0 is for Vista only, and I think 6.0 is for XP Pro, but I'd have to check.  You can probably download both from the Microsoft Website

    Most ISPs offer static IPs with a business class account, which is usually quite a bit more expensive.  You might find it more economical top just get a hosting account somewhere, which can cost anywhere from $5 to $20 a month - which is usually much less than business class internet service.
