IIS Interview Questions and Answers

What is MIME?

Author: abhays          Posted Date: September 26, 2014    Category: IIS     Points: 40

MIME stands for Multi-purpose Internet Mail Extensions or Multimedia Internet Mail Extensions.

It is a encoding protocol like BinHex in Mac and UUEncode in UNIX.

Many e-mail clients now support MIME, which enables them to send and receive graphics, audio, and video files via the Internet mail system.

In addition, MIME supports messages in character sets other than ASCII.

There are many predefined MIME types, such as GIF graphics files and
PostScript files. It is also possible to define your own MIME types.

What is a Web service extension and how do you use the Web Service Extensions folder.

Author: Ashutosh Jha          Posted Date: May 27, 2014    Category: IIS     Points: 40

The Web Service Extensions folder is the user interface for the new IIS 6.0 lockdown feature. This feature is a manifest of ISAPI extensions and CGIs with user-specified permissions, meaning, administrators must set the permissions to allow specific ISAPIs and CGIs to run on your server. Administrators can also specify the names of ISAPIs or CGIs that are forbidden to run on your server. Before loading an ISAPI extension .dll file or CGI .exe file, IIS checks this manifest for the permissions on the file. If the file is permitted to run, then the request proceeds normally. If the file is not permitted to run, then IIS returns a 404.2 error response to the client machine. The HTML page for a 404.2 error looks like a standard 404 error page, so the client machine processes the request as though the file did not exist. IIS logs the 404.2 error, which administrators can view to assess problems or potential threats against the server.
