Hi,
I have two Windows 2003 servers, with SP2 installed.  I run IIS6 on them and while one is allowing large file uploads the other isn't.  What could be wrong?

The web.config file is;
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
      <system.webServer>
        <security>
            <requestFiltering>
                <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="2147483648"/>
            </requestFiltering>
        </security>
      </system.webServer>
</configuration>


Its the same app on both servers.

Cheers,

In case of IIS 6.0:
<system.web>
  <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="2097151" />
</system.web>
Important! The maximum file upload size for both ASP.NET 2.0 and ASP.NET 4.0 is 2097151Kb = 2Gb.

x-men, thank you for your assistance, however it still didnt upload 150Mb.

The uploader is using Cold Fusion via IIS, but the modification hasnt changed anything.

Thanks anyway
