Hi Experts,

Windows 2003 ENT Server SP2
IIS 6
ASP.Net

We recently migrated from W2K server, IIS 5 ASP.NET to W2K3 ENT Server, IIS 6, and ASP.NET. We have built an application that allows us to upload files onto the webserver. When we go to upload a file, the status bar shows about 2% and then it say done, and displays, page cannot be found from IE, FF. Everything works beautifully on our W2K server. Also, when we go to download a pdf file it just save as an image of the file (image/pdf). We have added the application/pdf in the http header. Is this related to IIS 6?

Thanks!

Did you check the MIME extensions defined in your IIS. You can compare this between your working win2k and win2k3 machine.

I checked and all MIME extensions are the same. I did solved the upload issue. The developers failed to tell me that they used ABCupload.

I'm still unable to open pdf file in IE or FF. Also, downloading the file shows that it's zero kb.

thanks
