I have set maxrequestentity, modified the metabase.xml and turned off asp buffering and still getting a timeout at just over a minute...have no idea why!


IIS 6.0
Windows 2k3
web.config is as follows:
 
 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<configuration>

<system.web>

<httpRuntime executionTimeout="360000" maxRequestLength="2097151" useFullyQualifiedRedirectUrl="false" 

minFreeThreads="8" minLocalRequestFreeThreads="4" appRequestQueueLimit="10000" />

</system.web>

</configuration>

The request was aborted: The request was canceled.

WebException was unhandled, just over a minute everytime when trying to upload large files via .net code.
 Dim WebClient As New Net.WebClient

        Call WebClient.UploadFile("http://xxxxxx:xxx/xxx.aspx?filename=" & "test.dat", pathtolargefile)

appears that WebClient is timing out, can someone help me convert my uploader to a WebRequest?  doesnt seem to be placing the file on the IIS server...


            Dim rdr As New FileStream("C:\windows\system32\calc.exe", FileMode.Open)

            Dim req As HttpWebRequest = DirectCast(WebRequest.Create("http://xxx.xxxx.com:7601/newuppoint.aspx"), HttpWebRequest)

            req.Method = "POST"

            ' you might use "POST"

            req.ContentLength = rdr.Length

            req.AllowWriteStreamBuffering = True
 

            Dim reqStream As Stream = req.GetRequestStream()
 

            Dim inData As Byte() = New Byte(rdr.Length - 1) {}
 

            ' Get data from upload file to inData 

            Dim bytesRead As Integer = rdr.Read(inData, 0, rdr.Length)
 

            ' put data into request stream

            reqStream.Write(inData, 0, rdr.Length)
 

            rdr.Close()

            req.GetResponse()
 

            ' after uploading close stream 

            reqStream.Close()

Server reciever looks like..
<%@ Import Namespace="System"%>

<%@ Import Namespace="System.IO"%>

<%@ Import Namespace="System.Net"%>

<%@ Import NameSpace="System.Web"%>
 

<Script language="C#" runat=server>
 
 
 
 

void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {

   string guid = System.Guid.NewGuid().ToString("N").ToUpper();

 

   foreach(string f in Request.Files.AllKeys) {

			

       HttpPostedFile file = Request.Files[f];

        file.SaveAs("C:\\UpPoint\\ScanMe\\test.zip");

   }

}

</Script>

Was the fact that you can't set a timeout value on the WebClient object...used webrequest instead.
