I've discovered that any link to a file in a folder that has a suffix fails in my IIs5 running on a Windows 2000 server. Example:
The default.mmd folder is the problem. I verified that my IIS will not allow access to ANY folder that has ANY suffix. The same web pages worked well on my old Windows NT IIs4. The UNC (\\psych.csufresno.edu\www
" works fine when the file is opened with Internet Explorer. I can remove the .mmd, change the link in the calling page, and it works fine.
So the problem is isolated to my IIS. The .mmd suffix is NOT a registered file type. Permissions are definitly set correctly. I cannot set the web pages to use no suffix because they are automatically generated by Meeting Maker. This problem occurs even when I access the http link in Internet Explorer while at the server keyboard.
I can't find any reference to such a problem anywhere. Not sure how to search for a solution since the .mmd is more likely called an extension which gets confused with the MS IIs extensions.
The server is up to date with MS patches and IIS Extensions.
Any clues would be appreciated.
