Virtual Directory cannot Write file
Posted on 2004-11-11
I am using VB.net and have created an aspx application to upload photos. For the development I just used a sub folder to the application folder on my local machine and everything works fine. However, once I deploy the application I will need to use a virtual folder to a file server (this does not have asp.net installed and is not in any domain) to store the photos due to the overall size.
I have replaced my sub folder with a virtual folder on my local machine and when creating the virtual folder I used admin credencials, but when I now try to create and delete files I catch the following message
Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.
If I enable directory browsing then I can browse the folders through IE.
I know this is a security thing but don't know how the aspnet account works with virtual folders located on another computer
Thanks in advance
