Execution Timeout / Max Request Length
Posted on 2003-03-19
On my site, users will occaisionally be uploading very large files (100+ MB). The issue I ran into was, of course, exceeding the max request length, and when that was fixed via web.config, exceeding the timeout length.
No, I know I can change the global values for the web.config file (i.e. maxRequestLength="175000", executionTimeout="99999"), but this seems to be a little dangerous, since those variables are to prevent against DoS attacks and such.
Here's my question, and it's probably an easy one. Isn't it possible to set those values for the session? Like ignoring the fileupload limit and sending a keep alive signal or something, so the session doesn't time out?
I'm sure this is fairly simple, but if it's more complicated than I've assumed, I'll up the points.
