Creating a user friendly alias for the website path


 Hello mates,

I am hosting my ASP.NET application on a Windows 2003 Server.

To browse to my application one has to type the path :http://serverName/applicationName

I want users to only type  applicationName on the web adress area.I believe there is something to do with alias and CNAME on DNS records that can adress this.

Any help on how to go about doing this will be highly appreciated.

How to set SearchRoot Path in Active Directory in this scenario


How to set SearchRoot Path in Active Directory in this scenario:

Functionality: We have scenario that 1<sup>st</sup> hit one LDAP server with some 'fixed user name' &' fixed password ' and filter data with specific User name(which given by user) getting 'User dn'.

After that we hit Next LDAP server based on the 'User dn' getting from 1<sup>st</sup> server.

(So, in my case 1<sup>st</sup> LDAP server works like as Load balancing server but functionalitywise it is different)


Split URL/Path in Classic AND .net 2.0


I need to be able to get the different parts of the URI (and convert from/to relative page paths) in BOTH classic ASP and .Net 2.0 (VB).

For example, if I have "http://sitename.company.com/index.aspx?sec=fred&pag=dis&mode=1" OR "/index.aspx?sec=fred&pag=dis&mode=1"

IS there a function where I can pass in either string (assuming I'm on sitename.company.com) and get back an array with:

(0): sitename.company.com
(1): index.aspx
(2): sec=fred&pag=dis&mode=1

(Or, alternately, three different functions that would return the three parts?)

asp.net path issue


Hi all,
I am working on an application where many hyperlinks ( <a hrefs> like <a href=/web/index.html ) are used. The website is working fine on live server. The previous link goes to wwww.mysite.com/web/index.html which fine. But when i setup the website on my local machine. The above link goes to
http://localhost/web/index.html which is not correct path and I get resource not found error. If i correct the path in browser like this :

Path 'OPTIONS' is forbidden

Don't know exactly where this goes, so I shall post here.

I'm getting an error when I link to a Word Document.  My Hyperlink control simply opens up the doc in a new window.  The error message is "Path to 'OPTIONS' is forbidden."

The Word document actually comes up and is displayed, but my error handling sends me about 5 emails each time a document is viewed.  I'm using MS Application Blocks, and this is the error I'm getting:

    Executing Command Logic in a View Model

    Through the use of the Windows Presentation Foundation's (WPF) advanced data-binding capabilities, the logical structure of a user interface can relatively easily be disconnected from its presentation. Bindable components can now contain nearly all of an application's user interface logic and in most circumstances, replace the need for controller objects from the classic Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern. So it's no wonder that a new pattern for UI design has appeared
