WCF IIS WindowsAuthentication HTTP Deletes fail with 401

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF

I have a windows authenticated WCF service hosted in an IIS virtual directory of a web site.  I have setup IIS for that virtual directory to use only WindowsAuthentication.  I have URL Authorization enabled but is allowing all users for our domain(I don't want IIS to do any authorization, just authentication,  my service will handle doing authorization). For the wcf service, I am using a Custom ServiceHostFactory to create the service with the security settings, in the custom service host factory i am setting these on the binding used by the service as follows:



binding = new WebHttpBinding(WebHttpSecurityMode.

ASP.NET Architecture - ASP.NET Worker Process - HTTP Pipleline - Http Modules and Handlers

"ASP.NET is a powerful platform for building Web applications, that provides a tremendous amount of flexibility and power for building just about any kind of Web application. Most people are familiar only with the high level frameworks like WebForms and WebServices which sit at the very top level of the ASP.NET hierarchy. In this article I'll describe the lower level aspects of ASP.NET and explain how requests move from Web Server to the ASP.NET runtime and then through the ASP.NET Http Pipeline to process requests.

HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden


(VB Express website directed me to ASP.NET Web Services which in turn redirected me to this forum).

 Hopefully someone can help me here...... 

I am using VIsual Web Developer and downloaded the small business application to use as a starting point to help my wife get a website up for her small business. When I load the application, I can F5 and it runs fine but as soon as I make any modification to the app and hit F5, I get the HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden when it tries to show the website.

I notice a pop up that occurs when I run that allows me to choose the link for my app and it displays correctly (I close the webpage that has the error on it).

This seems like a pain, is there a setting I'm missing - I would think that this should "just work".

What's up?????

HTTP Post and WebService


I am working on a application which will accept the data in the post request. My application also wants to expose a web service and want to call another web service. Considering all these 3 action that I want to do, can I create a single application which will have a web form which will accept the POST request and expose a web service at the same time.

Although it may be possible to achieve this, Is this a correct way of doing it?

URL Rewrite causes AppSettings to Fail?


Hi there,

I just implemented basic URL rewriting to change a page from, for example, /member.aspx?id=123 to /member.aspx/erik.  That works and I'm happy with it.  However, I am now getting an error message that states "the connectionstring property has not been initialized".  Normally, I've been storing the connectionstring in web.config, and I access it with:

Dim Connect As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection
Dim ConnectString As String
ConnectString = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("linktomysite")
Connect.ConnectionString = ConnectString

This is what I do on every other page of the site and it works fine.  The only way it will work on the page where I'm URL re-writing, however, is if I replace "ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("linktomysite")" with the actual connection string itself.  For security reasons, obviously I would prefer to keep that info out of the page.  What can I do?

A connection could not be made to the report server http://localhost/ReportServer.



  • I created a Report using Business Intelligence Studio. Its working working well, i can able to view records. But when i try to deploy the report an error occurs specifying that "A connection could not be made to the report server http://localhost/ReportServer. (Microsoft Report Designer)".
  • I open the IIS 7 and find out virtual directories "Reports" and "ReportServer" are available.
  • I check on the browser and type "http://localhost/reports".  I find the browser direct to this url: http://localhost/reports/Pages/Folder.aspx and find error specifying the following one:

         Error:The report server is not responding. Verify that the report server is running and can be accessed from this computer.

  • when i type http://localhost/reportmanager, i found the error:

    HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found

    The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

Debugging Web applications can be a difficult process due to the logical, physical, and temporal differences between the mishmash of technologies that comprise such an application. For bugs that arise from the HTML and script received by the browser or in the transfer or request of a page's markup, developers often adopt archaic debugging techniques, such as using View Source and Notepad to scrutinize the contents received by the browser.
