Hello,

I'm using URLScan 3.1 to help improve a IIS 6.0 + Exchange
OWA Security.
I'm getting a lot of "Rejected URL+is+double+escaped" errors.
How can I disable the URLScan Double Escape filter ??

Thanks in advance!

Is the server dedicated to Exchange? If so then you shouldn't run URLSCAN on the machine. It isn't required and will simply break OWA.

Hello Simon,

Thanks for the tip...

The only problem I noticed using URLScan with OWA is that boring error message about "double escaped urls".

Do you know how may I disable it?

Thanks in advance!

Never used URLSCAN on Windows 2003 as it is unnecessary. No idea how to disable that - even if you should.
