Question on ASP + IIS in Windows XP

By Hunterzh ·
We have a local application system based on ASP + SQL Server 2000; the computer (as server) is using Windows XP, Internet Information Service.
Previously the application server was another computer using Windows Server 2000.
Now a problem: on the new server of Windows XP, users can not input new message.
But on the old Windows server 2000, users have no problem to write new message into application system.
What might be the reason? I suppose it must be due to security policy of Windows XP. So I have tried to change the security in Property of Folder, let "everyone" with "Full Control" permission. But it still doesn?t work.
So how to write into the local drive of a Windows XP machine through IIS (e.g. upload file)? Thanks.

Well for a start XP is not a Server application and can not control a Domain.

Even if you are using a Peer to Peer Network there will be connectivity issues if you have more than 10 workstations attached as that is the upper limit for concurrent connections to a XP machine in a Peer to Peer Network.

But what I would seem to think your problem is here is that it is a connectivity issue involved to a read only file as XP may have altered the file to Read Only which is quite a common occurrence when people attempt to run XP as a Server with SQL. I'm taking it for granted that you have altered all the current computers on the network from a Domain to a simple Work group but if you have not that is the reason why the other computers can not connect and write to this new computer.

If it is on the same domain as the Y2K Server and just treated as another workstation by Y2K server it is quite possible an issue between SQL and XP not playing nice together for this particular use.
