Website rendered differently on IE only when hosted on server

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I have a strange problem that I am trying to find a solution to or even only know why does this happen. 

I built a website using ASP.NET, when I run the website locally it looks very normal (I am speaking Style and CSS wise) on all the browsers (including IE8). And when I deploy this website to the test server which has Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6, the applications looks normal too on all the browsers except IE8. I did not try other versions of IE but I have a requirement to have this website working on IE8. Some tweaking on the CSS solves some of the problems but I do not want to go through each and every tiny detail and rework my whole CSS. There are even some problem which cannot be resolved.

I have no clue why is this happening. It should be something either with the OS or the application server because those are the only differences between my machine and the server. On my machine I have Windows 7 Enterprise and I was test the website on the ASP.NET development server.

I hope anyone can help me understanding what's happening.

Citrix server slowing down due to ASP.NET Website



I have created an ASP.NET website using Visual Studio 2008. It is deployed to a local server in my office running Windows Server 2003. This intranet website is accessed by about 200 employees at a given time from 3 different corners of the world.

It runs fine on a local browser. But it is terribly hogging about 25% of the CPU memory when run in a Citrix environment. It runs in the IE 8 with IE 7 compatibility mode.

Many users open two browsers at a time to run different pages of this website.

The webpage has AJAX toolkit controls and lots of CSS defined.

Does anyone have any idea or experience regarding this?

Where is System.Web.Extensions.dll now? Fails on remote hosted server.

I've read all the notes about how from RC2 to ajax.net the name space has changed. "The core ASP.NET AJAX assembly has been changed from Microsoft.Web.Extensions.dll to System.Web.Extensions.dll. In addition, the namespace has changed from Microsoft.Web.* to System.Web.*. For some reason, my app runs on my local machine but when I copy it to a remote server (that does not have the ajax updated installed) it fails.  How can I get an IIS installation to work?  Am I missing a dll that I can push up to the remote server?  I can't run the install on the remote machine becasue it's a hosted server. Thanks

How to the web client credentials to call the server (hosted in IIS 7) database with Integrated Secu

I'm dealing with a problem trying to use Windows authentication with IIS 7 in Windows Server 2008. Also i'm using WCF. I have a client application and the server application. The server application manage the user accounts using Active Directory. Everything starts when the client sends its user and password to the server application, which is hosted in the IIS(7), and this application must use the same credentials to authenticate the user in the Active Directory. Also after the user is logged in the application, every request sent to the database must use Windows Integrated Security. I already installed Windows Authentication in the IIS 7, and also I enabled it, (and disabled Anonymous Authentication), also I added authentication mode="Windows" in the server app Web.config. I would like to know: - How can I know which user is running the server application (In other words, which user is doing requests to the database). I forgot to say I can't use the SQL Server Profiler cause I don't have permissions. - If I'm missing something, cause I don't want to have security problems in the application. By the way this website says something about this topic but using another IIS version. http://imar.spaanjaars.com/287/how-do-i-determine-the-security-account-that-iis-uses-to-run-my-web-site

Passing value from one web application to another hosted in different server

I want to redirect from one aspx page to another aspx page of different application. Both applications are hosted in different application servers. I want to pass a value from one application to another. I tried - 1. Response.redirect with Query string - But query string is not secure as it is visible to user in browser. 2. Cookies - This is also not a secure way. Again if the cookies are disable in the browser it may not work. 3. Server.transfer - In different web application we cant use server.transfer. Please provide any easy solution how to achieve this.  I dont want to display the values to the user as it is confidential data.

Run website on local server



I am new to this new version of Webmatrix. I developed a couple of web sites on the previous version about 4 years ago.

I have downloaded and installed all of the recommended products using Microsoft Web Platform Installer including IIS Express, Web Matrix and Visual Studio 2010 Express.

1) I followed the Start From Scratch and set up the Hello World web site.

When I click on Run, if I am not online Internet Explorer opens but does not display the Hello World site.

If I am online and click on Run the Hello World site does display.

2) The new Webmatrix does not not have different tabs like the previous one did: Design & HTML & Code. To see the Design I launched Visual Studio 2010 Express but it still only shows me the code. In Tools/Options I have selected both Design view and Split View but both still only show me the code.

Can anyone please tell me what I am doing wrong.

Upgraded website to AJAX 3.5, I get js errors on production web server



I recently upgraded our website to include some AJAX 3.5 modal popup extenders.   The site is working fine on my development machine, unfortunately when I published it over to our production web server (running IIS6) I'm getting javascript errors every time a page containing one of these controls loads.  Here's what shows up in the Firefox Error Console:

Error: $get("scriptmanager1_hiddenfield") is null

SBS 2008 Premium Edition - Securing SQL Server while allowing access from e-commerce website.


Reposted from SBS forum:

I'm currently planning an SBS 2008 Premium Edition installation for a client currently running a five old Win NT / Server 2003  machines to serve a small company (fewer than 50 people).  A complicating factor is that one of their e-commerce websites is currently served directly from their production SQL server - a security risk made necessary by the limitations of their e-commerce software.  In the SBS 2008 plan I would like to protect the production SQL server from the Internet.  My question - is there a way of replicating the production SQL database in real time on a second SQL server outside the firewall?  If not, what other options are available?

I'm not an SQL specialist so I'd also be grateful for links to useful web resources on the topic.

Thanks in advance.


WCF Service to be hosted on the server with multiple IP Address


Hello all,

I am new to WCF Service. Following is my scenario

I have got a Windows Server 2008 with two NIC ie. two IP Addresses



I have got Apache server running on 1 and IIS on 2.

Now when I publish the WCF service on my service and have explicitly set the iplisten for IIS to 2. Still I am not able to access the service.

One more observation the link which I get after publishing is "svcutil.exe http://servername/Webservice/Service.svc?wsdl "

I need to have IP Address instead of servername in above URL.

Because I think the servername is causing the confusion as both IP Address 1 and 2 point to it.

Please suggest what needs to be done

Thanks in Advance.

Finding out who owns the IP-address of a website visitor on a sharepoint hosted website


I am woundering if there is anyone here that can help me by explaining if there is a way to save a visitors IPaddress, and send it to whois service, to see who owns the IPadress, and what organization it belongs to.

At first I was thinking that maby Google Analytics would be the way, but then I started to think. Maybe sharepoint has this functionality buildt-in.

If I have to I can do some programming, but I am not that much of a programmer. However I have found a phrase that might help me with obtaining the IPaddress through ASP. "Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR")

But I need pointers on where to put it, and on how to write a script or uses a function in Sharepoint to look up owner and organiziational information, and store it for furthere analsis.

Hope someone can help!

Best Regards
