ASP Upload IIS 6.0

This is in refrence to Windows 2003 Server running IIS 6.0

I have a web application that uploads files via an ASP script, and I am aware of the fact that in stock form IIS 6.0 will not accept uploads via asp larger than 200k. To fix this, I editted the MetaBase.xml and adjusted the "AspMaxRequestEntityAllowed" value to "1073741824"

I then restarted the server.

It seems that still, if I attempt to upload a file larger than 200k, it still fails, and I get a 500 error. I'm confused, I've run this web application on numerous other IIS 6.0 servers without a problem assuming I've made this edit.

Is there something I'm missing? URLscan is NOT on the box, and I already placed a "*" in the mime types to accept all file types. The problem seems to be completley size related.

Hi,

does it look like it is sending the whole file (ie does it take longer to error when sending a 2meg file than when sending a 500K file?  A long shot, but doesn;t seem to be anything else to guess on for this one.

If so, could it have something to do with disk space or access permission?

cheers.

No, it doesn't begin uploading the file, it fails immediatley with a 500. I was actually hoping that it was a permissions or file extension problem, but obviously this isn't the case being that I can upload ANY file smaller than 200K without a problem.

Very interesting - that would suggest that it is baulking after just reading the http header, which suggests that it is very much a server side configuration issue.

Can you double check what you have done with the metabase?  Maybe you have inadvertently changed the setting for something other than the particular web site running that application.

Cheers.

The only thing different about this server is that it is a virtual server (running vmware). I would think that this shouldn't make any difference however. The metabase setting I changed affects IIS as a whole, for all the websites on the box.

We ended up figuring out that it was a firewall problem. The firewall was blocking cross-site scripting. All is well now.
