Publish .xsd file on IIS6

I have an .xsd file I would like published on my website (Win Server 2003, IIS6)

I assume that entering a URL of http://www.mysite.com/schema.xsd into IE should display the contents of the .xsd file... However, all I get is a 404 "File Not Found" error.
If I rename the file with a .xml the file displays as expected (so the file is definitely there!)

Having searched here and elsewhere for solutions I have confirmed the MIME type is set to text/xml, and there is no Application Mapping set for .xsd extension.

No entries appear in the log file when trying to access the .xsd file (but there are when the file extension is changed to .xml)

Any suggestions as to what else I could try?

Can you clarify what you mean by "If u have a FW do add the extension is trusted list"

Thanks

I have tried mapping .xsd files to aspnet_isapi.dll as you suggest but it has no effect.

Upping the points as it looks like this is a difficult one!

Found the problem....
The firewall was blocking outbound .xsd extensions .... I didn't know it did that!

I didn't realise FW was Firewall, sorry my lack of understanding.

gr8.. In short we refer FW instead of Firewall and AV for Antivirus etc... Cheers Good luck...
