Configuring ASP on a 2003 Box

Hey all,

This is probably real simple...I've got a box that I am testing some 5250 Emultaion software on that converts the emulation into ASP pages.  I've installed 2003 Standard on a box and set it as an application server.  I am behind a firewall that creates the VPN and have given the server a static address (  The HTTP port has been set to 85 instead of 80 for security reasons...but that's not really important.  

It has appeared that I have set up the IIS to run correctly, and I have installed ASP to run on the server via the command:
%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe -i

but when I try to run the ASP pages that come with the emultion conversion software, it will not appear.  Say the ASP page that I am trying to use is at the URL:
will not display.

Someone please point out to me what I am not doing correctly here.

Thanks a lot,

Hello inverted_2000,

Did you check within the IIS management console that ASP pages are an approved Web Service Extension?  

Have you tried to browse the page in via the IIS tool?  Perhaps it is also a permission issue where the Internet Guest account doesn't have read permission.

Your example above uses default.asp which if IIS is configured to serve ASP pages then it will see that page however if you are using a different name for the default page then you may also have to include that name in the Default Document tab of the website.  IE - test.asp if that is the page you are trying to access.

Hello Brian,

Right after the first post I enabled ASP pages as an approved Extension.  That didn't allow the page to display, but browsing the ASP pages via IIS has allowed me to view them.  Guess I need to work on the permissions for the LAN.

Thanks a lot,
