Https HttpWebResponse/HttpWebRequest Error

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I have implemented a https HttpWebResponse in .Net 3.5 as follow.

            System.Net.HttpWebRequest request = (System.Net.HttpWebRequest)System.Net.WebRequest.Create("https://someDomain.com");
            System.Net.ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback += RemoteCertificateValidation;

            request.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;
            System.Net.HttpWebResponse response = (System.Net.HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();
            System.IO.Stream responseStream = response.GetResponseStream();
            System.IO.StreamReader reader = new System.IO.StreamReader(responseStream);
            string responseData = reader.ReadToEnd();

        public bool RemoteCertificateValidation(Object sender, X509Certificate certificate, X509Chain chain, SslPolicyErrors sslPolicyErrors)
            return true;


Now the problem is when ever it wants to read from the created URL (request.GetResponse();
) it throws the following exception:

"The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a receive."

I have searched and found out there are some method in .Net 1.1 which you have to download certificate and add a reference to that. Also have to implement the ICertificatePolic

WCF service over https returning error


I am trying to deploy a wcf service. I have created a simple service, basically I have created a new wcf service and tried to deploy it however I get this error

The type 'WCF_Application.Service1', provided as the Service attribute value in the ServiceHost directive, or provided in the configuration element system.serviceModel/serviceHostingEnvironment/serviceActivations could not be found.


I am trying to deploy my service to a subdomain like https://services.mydomain.com/business


My config looks like this


      <service name="WCF_Application.Service1">
        <endpoint address="Business" binding="wsHttpBinding" contract="WCF_Application.IService1"
            <dns value="services.mydomain.com" />

Accessing response of HttpWebRequest, even when request returns 500 Internal Server Error



Hoping someone can point me to a solution, haven't been able to find one yet.

I'm using the standard way for send HttpWebRequest

		webRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(request.URL);
webRequest.Method = "POST";
webRequest.ContentType = "text/xml";


postStream = webRequest.GetRequestStream();
postStream.Write(requestBuffer, 0, requestBuffer.Length);
webResponse = (HttpWebResponse)webRequest.GetResponse();
responseStream = webResponse.GetResponseStream();
responseReader = new StreamReader(responseStream);
string response = responseReader.ReadToEnd();

This is all fine, working correctly, no poblems.

However the actual webservice that i'm calling returns a 500 Internal Server Error code for standard faults

HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error
Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: 703
Date: Fri, 22 Oct 2010 04:50:48 GMT

<?xml version="1.0" en
coding="UTF-8"?><soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.o

HttpWebRequest capture response even if 500 Internal Server Error

IsapiModule Error 500 Issue


I am about exhausted trying to figure out this error:

HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error

Description: The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

Error Code: 0x8007007b

Notification: ExecuteRequestHandler

Module: IsapiModule

Requested URL: http://localhost:80/ReportServer

Physical Path: c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.2\Reporting Services\ReportServer

When I enable Failed Request Tracing Rules and view the log output I am supposing that the actual problem is in the 2nd call where there are 2 backslashes before the actual filename in the specified path:


CALL_ISAPI_EXTENSION DllName="C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\\aspnet_isapi.dll"

Inserting personal error message in ValidationSummary



I am creating a web form that requires a lot of validation. I use many of the validation control in asp.net already like RequiredFieldValidator and CompareValidator. 

My Problem: after my custom validation for the value entered return an error message, and I pressed enter key when the field is empty, my custom error message is overlapped by my ValidationSummary. 

Setting my custom error to visible = false on button click also does not seem to work as it requires for me to enter the value first.

This made me think, is there a way to insert my custom validation inside the ValidationSummary as an error message like for other validation control?

Thanks in advance

Jscript error: Object does not support property or method


 Hi, i have little knowledge on javascript but i need to use this code get from somewhere for a jquery to work.

I face this "Jscript runtime error: Object does not support property or method" whenever im trying to run this page.

In my experience, im get this error msg 9 out of 10 times i use javascript in my system.

Im using Microsoft Visual web developer 2008, i wonder if this is related to my problem, i not sure there is anything i need to add as reference or update anything.

But anyway, in short, i just couldn't use javascript code when using this development tool because of this sort of error.

Anyway, it happen that last time i tried use the same type of jquery code in another project and it seems to work well without an error.

But now when im try to use it again in this recent project i created, it come out with this error and i have no idea how to solve it even look through google and this forum.

It doesn't really seems like its the code problem itself although im not sure, because any javascript code just couldn't work.

So below is my code that i need to use.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js" ></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src=&quo

Type or namespace error.


A couple of days ago I started getting an unusual behavior when compiling Website projects. I have referenced class libraries added to my bin folder that are also correctely referenced in using statements in my aspx.cs code behind. When I compile, I get the 

Error 4 The type or namespace name 'CommonClassLibrary' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) C:\Dev\Fiscal_Portal\Implementation\FMS Portal Site_new\App_Code\BLL\DataTables.cs 1 7 C:\...\FMS Portal Site_new\

The type or namespace name 'CommonClassLibrary' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

error message that would typically be received when the dll has not been added as a reference or added in a using statement.

I can eliminate the error by adding an


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?????

Insert Error not helpful



I am using VS2010

When I try to updated or insert a record in my User table I am getting an error that does not make sense to me and I cannot figure out what is wrong.

Also, when I try to insert a new record I get a validation error saying that the Id is required. However it is an identity field in the db so it should not be necessary to send it to the server.

Could you please shed some light?

Server Error in '/' Application.

Consider adding a new object with new identity and deleting the existing one instead.

I get this error whenever I attempt to update an entry. Even an entry that has had nothing altered. I have tried to circumvent it but I think it must be a simple oversight. How could I have caused an ID update using the Edit.aspx page of dynamic data? Thank you in advance for the help!

urlrouting - page not found error


I have a dynamic data site setup and running locally fine from vs 2008.

When i deploy to a remote windows 2003 server (IIS6), all the pages also work ok apart from one page/table.  I can access it's list page,  but the edit and insert pages throw 404 errors.

I'm thinking it's a url routing/hosting issue as i've copied back the database from the remote server and it all works fine on my local machine.

Is there anything i can do to debug this behaviour?

Below is my register routes entry from the global.asax
