ASPExec

I am using ASPExec to run a command line pgp type program to encrypt a file.  This works fine on Windows 2000 Advanced Server but not when I run it on another server running Windows 2000 Server.

The code is as follows

Executor.Application = "c:\gnupgp\gpg --yes -a -e -r daveamour@hotmail.com c:\gnupgp\test.txt"

This works fine if I type it in at the server but when run from an ASP page I get the following error...

gpg: c:\gnupgp\test.asc: can't create: No such file or directory gpg: c:\gnupgp\test.txt: encryption failed: file create error

Any ideas anyone?

Cheers

Dave

I think that is because of permission.
Try to change c:\gnupgp to c:\temp to see if it work. (c:\temp has everyone permission).
Give the directory c:\gnupg permission (IUSR_).

My apologies ph

I had already set file permissions to what I thought they should be but after having tried setting Full control to Everyone this worked fine.  This doesnt need to be done on Windows 2000 Advanced Server though so I guess its a MS bug

Any better security solutions would be appreciated by anyone.

Cheers

I think there is something wrong.  Your directory c:\gnupgp should have IUSR_MachineName permission (full) -- don't give everyone permission.  And usually, only directories under your web directory automatically has that permission.  You should check it again.  If it does not need to be done on Windows 2000 Advanced Server then I think you should have a look about permission on all your directories.
:) I will check mine tomorrow.
