How do I allow IIS 7.0 to display text files that do not have extensions?  I went to the website and went to MIME feature.  I added ".*" and MIME type "application/octect-stream".  Still no luck.  Any ideas?

Hi

Use "." (a dot) as extension and create a MIME mapping.

If I understand you correctly you need your web client (browser) to display files without extension as served by the web server (IIS). I don't think it'd depend on any server-side settings, but if you set it to "application/octet-stream" (check spelling) I don't think it'd do any good. How about using "text/plain" instead?

I tried text/plain and application/octet-stream.  Neither work.. It's a text file for if I put a .txt on the end of it the browser will display it.. But..  The app that uploads these files leaves the extension off.. I'll try ivostoykov's post above.. brb

This worked!  I put in "." at the extension and set the MIME to "text/plain"
