How to trouble-shoot NT4 for ASP setup ?

Hi,

i have a error-free sample ASP codes (attached) which works fine on someone's NT4:
- InetPub\wwwroot\Order.htm
- InetPub\scripts\Response.asp

However, on my NT4, i use Netscape to open Order.htm. When i click "SUBMIT" and Response.asp is supposed to be shown, nothing happens on my screen.

The same things happen when i use IE5.0. Nothing happens on the screen when i click "SUBMIT" in Order.htm. But i know Response.asp is being opened by the browsers.

My IIS(HTML) shows the Directories for Scripting is "InetPub\scripts" and for WWW is "InetPub\wwwroot". And, the login username in IIS(HTML) is Anonymous.

I have also tried login as "Anonymous".  

How could i trouble-shoot my NT4.0 for my ASP setup ? Is there a sample asp scripts in IIS(HTML) ?
 
Thanks.


---------------- Order.htm -------------------------

<HTML>
<HEAD><TITLE>Order Form</Title></Head>
<BODY>
Please give us some information, then click Submit.
<FORM METHOD=POST  Action=response.asp>
First Name: <INPUT NAME=fname SIZE=25><P>
Last Name: <INPUT NAME=lname SIZE=25><P>
Title:
<INPUT NAME=title TYPE=RADIO VALUE=mr>Mr.
<INPUT NAME=title TYPE=RADIO VALUE=ms>Ms.
<HR><INPUT TYPE=SUBMIT><INPUT TYPE=RESET>
</FORM>
</BODY>
</HTML>

---------------- Response.asp ---------------------

<HTML>
<HEAD><TITLE>Response Form </TITLE></Head>
<Body>
<%Title = Request.Form("Title")
LastName = Request.Form("lname")
If LastName = "" Then %>
Invalid Data Entry !
<% Else %>
Thanks for placing an order
<% If Title = "mr" Then %>
Mr. <% = LastName %>.
<% ElseIf Title="ms" Then %>
Ms. <% = LastName %>.
<% Else %>
<% = Request.Form("fname") & " " & LastName %>.
<% End If
End If %>
</BODY>
</HTML>

sounds stupid, but try changing
<HEAD><TITLE>Response Form </TITLE></Head>
<Body>

to
<HEAD><TITLE>Response Form </TITLE></HEAD>
<BODY>

netscape is very picky about everything.

does the browser just show a blank screen?  if so verify that the html is in the source.  If it is then make sure that all of your html tags are closed, meaning for every tag like <HTML> you have a matching closing tag </HTML>.


Or is the problem that the form is not submitted?

if your page shows exactly what your asp contains including the <% ...%> items, then you have a problem with your asp.dll.  To fix that problem you can reinstall IIS.

seems like your IIS just isn't set up with execute permissions on the directory you are putting your .asp files.  Open up your MMC (microsoft management console) and check the permissions on the different directories of your website.

Also...you MUST access the web page through a virtual path...not through a file path.  So you cannot just open the html file from windows explorer, becuase it'll use a regular path such as "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\order.htm"  Instead you need to use a path such as:

http://localhost/order.htm

and then the webserver will know that you are accessing the file and will process the .asp accordingly.

Or you could just make it simpler, couldn't you?  In lines 10-16 it could read:

<%= Title %> <%= Lastname %>

Try this;

<%
Title = Request("title")
LastName = Request("lname")

Qn Owner here...
Just to update after above comments...i tried changing to Title = Request("title"), or using path name not file name.  There is still the same msg (below)

I realized IE5.0 and Netscape4.01 display the same error msg "Http 501 not implemented / not supported".

Just fyi. Any comments ? Thanks in advance.
