POSTing to a remote site and HTTP 302 redirection

hello everyone, Objective: POST data to a remote website and follow the 302 redirect response Synopsis: This works quite well in plain ASP.NET. I can POST to the remote site either using the asp form's action attribute or a button and it's PostBackUrl property. However as soon as I try to accomplish the same behavior inside a Sharepoint page it causes a lot of trouble. Scenario 1 (changing the form's action attribute - less preferred): Imagine this simple publishing aspx page (for what it's worth I encountered the exact same behavior using an application page). <input type="text" name="myField1" value="abc" /> <input type="text" name="myField2" value="abcdef" /> <input type="text" name="myField3" value="123" /> <input type="submit" value="submit now" /> Note that I need to use pure html controls because the remote site expects pre-defined names for these fields. And as we all know control naming is something we cannot really influence up to .NET framework 3.5SP1 (4.0 is supposed to help, right?). Anyway we still need to set the action attribute of the form. This is being done in the page's OnLoad() method. Result: The aspform is being posted to the remote site, the remote site responds with 302 and the browser redirects to the returned ur

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?

When I use 'publish', site doesn't work when i post data


Arrgghh, I am so tired of dealing with stuff like this

I've got a project, when I put up on another server I point two sites in IIS6 to it

i have

http://www.main.com  pointing to the folder the files are in


http://www.anotherofoursites.com/main pointing to that same folder in it's own "Virtual Application" or whatever IIS calls it when you put a folder into it's own 

If I just "Build" and push all the files up.. both work without issue and as expected...  but when I use "Publish" to precompile, the site works until I post, and then i get nailed with:

Server Error in '/' Application.
Configuration Error
Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

How to Establish a Remote Web Site Connection in SharePoint Designer 2007


I am modifying a SharePoint site and so far so good.  Some of the objects were created using Visual Studio 2008 (C#).  I was able to modify these objects and implement them on the targete machine without issue.  The final step is to implement the ASPX pages that were modified using SharePoint Designer 2007.  These are aspx pages that are used to modify items in lists.  All the pages involved in this upgrade are customized.  I need to upgrade the target site with the modified version of these pages.  My intent is to copy the code from the page in the source site and past it into the same page on the target site.  I tried using the Remote Web Site connection tool in SharePoint Designer 2007 but received the following error message:

"Unable to open 'https://(site address)'.  Server Error:  Could not find a Web server at 'website'.  Please check to make sure that the Web server name is valid and your proxy settings are set correctly.  If you are sure that everything is correct, the Web server may be temporarily out of service."

I am not sure how to first check to see if the Web Server is temporarily out of service.  I would appreciate your input on how to verify this.

Background information of target machine:  WinServer 2008, IIS 7, Sharepoint (MOSS2007), site on port 80

Anonymous Web Site receives "The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized"


I set up a test website on my local box and was able to access sharepoint search using the querySearch web service from SP.  After I got it all working properly I transferred the code to the target website that is set up with anonymous access for all people on the fab floor.  However from this website I keep getting the 401 error.  It can't be SP because the same code worked from my local website "localhost".  Any suggestions?  we don't want to have to have the fab people log in so we can't not have the box anonymous.  I would appreciate any suggestions very much!!!

calling a web service on a remote server from a ASPX page (web site project VS2005)

HI,I am maintaining a web site project in VS2005 and have to call a new web service on a remote server. I've done add web reference, and created the .wsdl and .discomap files in the app_webReference folder.  When I try to create a object representing the web service in the code ( wsnamespace.serviceName ws = new wsnamespce.serviceName(); ) the code wouldn't compile.The web site project is already calling other web services. When I right click on the type representing the web service and "go to definition" it takes me to a proxy class (derived from of course SoapHttpClientProtocol) in the metadata. I think this is what's missing for  the new web service i'm trying to call. Have I missed any steps?Thanks in advance.-me

How to post comments in blogs created on My Site sites

HTTP POST in WPF/XBAP with partial trust

Hi, Is it possible to do a HTTP POST in XAML browser app with partial trust? I've tried to search for a solution, but I can't find any. I want to send a HTTP POST request to a website, within the same domain, that return a downloadable report (in a new window, _blank). I've earlier used hyperlink with GET parameters, but I have to use POST due to large amount parameter data. Is this possible? Edit: I'm using .Net Framework 3.5

Cannot crawl complex URL's without setting a site-wide rule to 'crawl as http content'. Help!

I have pages within a site that use a query string to provide dynamic data to the user (http://<site>/pages/example.aspx?id=1). I can get the content source to index these dynamic pages only if I create a rule which sets the root site (http://<site>/*) to 'include complex urls' and 'crawl sharepoint content as http content'. This is NOT acceptable as changing the crawling protocol from SharePoint's to HTTP will prevent any metadata from being collected on the indexed items. The managed metadata feature is a critical component to our SharePoint applications. To dispel any wondering of whether or not this is simply a configuration error on my part refer to http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointsearch/thread/4ff26b26-84ab-4f5f-a14a-48ab7ec121d5 . The issue mentioned is my exact problem but the solution is unusable as I mentioned before. Keep in mind this is for an external publishing site and my search scope is being trimmed using content classes to only include documents/pages (STS_List_850 and STS_ListItem_DocumentLibrary). Creating a new web site content source and adding it to my scope presents 2 problems: duplicate content in scope and no content class defining it that I know of. What options do I have?

How to Set Up Remote Desktop with Windows Mobile 6.1 Read more: http://www.brighthub.com/mobile/win

Most Windows Mobile 6.1 devices come with RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) as an optional component - one that allows the user of the device to interact with a remote PC running Windows XP (or Vista), whether it's situated in the home or office.
Setup on your PC First

It's a topic that is surrounded by mystery, due to a combination of secrecy and apathy - yet Remote Desktop Mobile on Windows Mobile 6.1 is surprisingly easy to set up, with great results.

Remote working via your Windows Mobile 6.1 device is likely to be something that happens rarely - such as when you need to urgently retrieve a file, for instance. Whatever the reason Remote Desktop needs to be enabled on your Windows desktop PC before you can continue.
