IIS on Server to folder on separate Shared Drive will Data Source= "Path" work.
Posted on 2003-11-10
We have a program, really a website full of data access pages that can run under IIS. Each data access page has a data source= and often too a connection string. This works fine when our folder is on the server running IIS.
I am trying to figure out if I can set up a IIS virtual directory to a shared drive on another computer, and then I am going to test and see if the data source and connection strings work.
This may be as basic as telling me how to share the folder so it has a share name (XP Pro) and then how to connect from the server (it asks for //server/sharename ) Please don't comment on why we have data source and connection strings on each page.
