It could be interesting to change the whole content to something I would rather want to read, eg. 1+1=3 (Right?)... Or, this quetions essential output could be added a 1000 points to my score, just because the webmaster forgot to set Read permissions for the files involved (let's say I had an ASP page running instantly looping, waiting to update the files, involved - in case the permissions were changed to Change).

I could have had an ASP page which opened the file (obviously, I should figure out how the files are organized first), then I could change the content as I like it. Later, you would complain, but I could say, I didn't do it, and where's the proof? It's not making it easier to the ISP, but rather the other way around.

Would you still think that someone would open this gaping hole in the security strategy?

The answer should be "No way". ASP is only made for the Webmasters to make features available which HTML doesn't offer.

There is no place I know of.  To use ASP you must be running IIS.  To be running IIS you must be running NT.  Very few internet servers use NT.  Most use UNIX, and to my knowledge there are no free services using NT/IIS.  Sorry!  If you find out of one, though, let me know!  :)  It's hard enough to find a commercial webspace provider who uses NT/IIS.

Microssoft have developed a version of Activer Server Pages for Win95 it is runned by Personal Web Server. It doesent need a powerful combuter in order to run. I have it installed on my porable 486 IBM thinkpad.

Is there any future to learn ASP if nobody support that when register free space?

Free Tool: SSL Checker

Scans your site and returns information about your SSL implementation and certificate. Helpful for debugging and validating your SSL configuration.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

That's not the main reason....
An ASP is essentially an ISAPI filter, thus is running inproc (as the same process as IIS). Thus an ASP can easily crash the IIS server (unlike a CGI, which is running out of process and cannot crash the server).

Of course there are also security concerns. Thus, unfortunately, I don't think any ISP/webspace provider will allow you to install ASPs.

I have heard that there are possibillities to restrict the access that could crash the server, but i dont't know so much about it. Well i leave this question open until we got an answer of the orginal question.

The only way to allow an ASP to run out of proc is to create an MTS package.

If you find a free webspace provider who allows you to run your own ASPs, let me know, I will give you 1000pts !!!

Probably, you won't find any ISP - who is aware of security holes, letting you run ASP on their system.

May I suggest that you set up your own Web server, then you could solve that problem.

Well friends i still hope that somebody knows i webspace-provider who dear put up my ASP scripts.
I dont think i would be a good idea to erase this question if somebody suddenly finds a site. Do you?

Yours sincerely

The problem with setting up my own server is that nobody will reach the LAN network. To do so there is a way called Tunneling, but i don't know much about it. Perhaps you know what to do?
Explain easy because im not so bright in that area. If you give me some hope of publish my asp-scripts i will give you the points and forget this question. Okidoki! ; )

Your sincerely

No, I can't help you with the PPTP stuff. But,you could setup the stuff (for more details, see http://mspress.microsoft.com/reslink/preview/kits/pptp/install.htm)

Btw, I see your problem as a new question, as the answer to the first is "Not likely".  The next question is not really, about Web Authoring, isn't it? You should rather consult areas like "Windows NT Networking" to get help.

Interesting as to why you accepted hkp's answer to all the rest of the people who told you why ISPs wouldn't allow ASPs ;-)

Percyn>> Well it seems impossible to run ASP on ISP (Internet Server Provider???) if ISP is free webspace for my homepage. I thougt that my question was stupid so wanted it to end.
I think javascript is better but not when sending E-mail. Check out my question:
