I look after a website that is hosted on EUKHost. I do not have access to the server, my only level of access is via a Plesk web host edition portal.

Up to yesterday the site was working fine, but today I am getting the following error:

This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.InvalidOperationException: This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.

I have already done some research, and found that this is normally fixed by adding the following into web.config:

<machineKey validationKey="AutoGenerate,IsolateApps" decryptionKey="AutoGenerate,IsolateApps" validation="3DES" decryption="3DES"/>

However this was already in the <system.web> section of the web.config file.

I have also tried changing



<pages enableEventValidation="false" viewStateEncryptionMode="Never">

but this didn't help either.

Many solutions involve changing a registry key to turn the checking off, but this obviously isn't an option for this site, as I don't have access to the underlying server.

Any ideas?

I use the following code to log a user of my web app in automatically as the page loads.
It does this by using cookies that remembers the username and password.

I have done this on every page of the site but would rather have it that if the user logs in on any page that
they can come back to any page and the cookies will remember their credentials

Is there a way to have the cookies remember the details no matter which page they come back to after logging in on just one page?

We are looking to moving from our current hosting provider because we've been having problems for months that aren't getting resolved.

What is everyone doing for hosting SQL SERVER Database (2015) and ASP.NET IIS technologies?

We would also be interested in hiring someone as a consultant to make the move as seamless as possible.

Hi there,

I’m working for a prototype that integrate Kerberos, ASP.NET , nhibernate  with an Oracle Database backend.  

On the  IIS web server itself, I was able to simply use sqlplus /@myoracle_server to login without a password  to access oracle .   I also tried a console app that use nhibernate , put  and it works perfectly.

However, when I tried to use it in an web application (ASP.NET )  I am constantly having a credential error.  I think it is the classic “Double Hop” issue but most online tutorial refers to SQL Server but not Oracle.

The connection string I use is “Data Source=MY_DEV;Integrated Security=true”

I used the Kerberos Configuration Manager for IIS server tool to setup my IIS server   and
Everything seems to be configured correctly but when I run the web app with querying oracle db, I keep getting

ORA-12638: Credential retrieval failed   (Hitting the web app on the IIS server)  OR
ORA-12641: Authentication service failed to initialize (Hitting the web app from the another workstation.)

I would be really appreciated with some help on this .

Hi all

I made an Visual Studio MVC webpage, which will be used to IT Equipment rental management.

I want a specific text input field "Name" to auto-complete or auto search for user firstname and lastname from Active Directory.

For exampel : if i wrote "Jo" then the text input field will show all names starts with "Jo" where we can pick the right name and then use this on "Name" text input field.

I have search on the web about how to achieve this, but couldn't find any great article about this.

If i want to achieve this, what is the best way to do it?

The site is on our intranet network, its inside our organization.

I have a databound grideview where I want to color-code the cells in my aspx.vb back end, based on criteria... I started with:

If IsDBNull(DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "SwitchPort1")) = True Then
            e.Row.Cells(3).ForeColor = Drawing.Color.Black

            e.Row.Cells(3).BackColor = Drawing.Color.Green

End If


This worked, so then I decided to add some ElseIf's to it and now have it look at the difference between NullOrEmpty, but cannot get the syntax right. There are several examples, but for whatever reason, I am not getting past the first "If", nothing else is being evaluated. I test the database values to force a change in the cell color, and cannot make the cells do anything but White with Black Text (if db is null) OR Green Background (Else). Can anyone help me figure out what I am doing wrong? "Guest" is a specific value, for which I want to search, and if present - a specific color.

If (e.Row.RowType <> DataControlRowType.DataRow) Then
            Exit Sub
        End If
        If IsDBNull(DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "SwitchPort1")) = True Then
            e.Row.Cells(3).ForeColor = Drawing.Color.Black

I am working on a web application(VS2008)
I need to print barcode label.
I created a web form with a label control and other fields that i need on the label. I set the font on the label to barcode font(IDAutomationHC39M). This field has a number which has to appear as a barcode on the page and then gets printed to a label.
The number appears as a Barcode on the page and i was able to print the barcode on the label.
I deployed this application on server.
After deployment to server, barcode font does not show up on the page. It appears as a number. This Barcode font appears on a PC which is my development PC.
This does not show up on other PC's.
I made sure the barcode font is available on all the PC's. I installed it on the server as well as the client PC's. Still, barcode does not show up.
What could be the reason, barcode is not showing up after deployment?
