Hi,

I am currently doing a vspserver integration on a site with protx using the ASP kit they provide.  I have modified a bit and the code runs and passed through the test variable to protx who then try to send an OK message back to me.

Problem is i get this message on the return page:

Server object error 'ASP 0178 : 80070005'

Server.CreateObject Access Error

/protx/vps_handle_protx_response.asp, line 44

The call to Server.CreateObject failed while checking permissions. Access is denied to this object.


Line 44 says:
  set md5hasher = server.CreateObject( "MD5HASH.VpsSignature" )

the md4has.dll file has been registered on the server and said sucessful.  the /protx is a virtual directory and has execute permissions on it and the directory security is set up ok but still says access denied.

Any ideas?

The correct account to set permissions for is IUSR_MachineName account...and it needs execute permission for all those files and folders.

One additional thing I've found on occasion is that the IUSR_MachineName account that alorentz was referring to also may need access to the system temp directory.  If his suggestion alone doesn't work, you might try finding the system temp directory (as specified in the environment variables), and make sure that you have IIS anonymous access to that folder (usually C:\windows\temp).

I have tried both of the above and no luck with them.

Just for info, i am hosting on a dedi server from fasthosts.... when you set up a site through their control panel it sets up a new username which is stored in local users and groups

THis new user you create is the anonymous account that is used under the IIS security tab

I was re-reading the documentation from protx and they say put the virtual directory in the default web sites, but that means my return processing scipt would be at http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/protx/my_script_here.asp

and not at:

http://domainname.co.uk/protx/my_script_here.asp

Any ideas?

You need to skip the Control Panel all together and use Remote Desktop (or something) to go right to the server.  If you can't do that, then seems your SOL.
