Decrypting in remote host

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I have a web site in a remote hosting service. How can I encrypt web.config sections ?. If I encrypt locally and upload the web.config I get this error:
"Failed to decrypt using provider 'DataProtectionConfigurationProvider'. Error message from the provider: Key not valid for use in specified state. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8009000B)"
When I try to decrypt it in the remote site I get this error :
"Access to the path 'c:\Inetpub\vhosts\site

WCF issues sending large data - "An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host"

Hi Guys I have posted the following on www.asp.net but thought it might be productive posting here too.I have been pulling my hair out trying to fix an issue with sending data over WCF, I have read pretty much every THREAD on this forum regarding or similar to this issue without any successful solution.  I have a simple data object which has a [DataMember] with a data type of byte[]. I use this to send binary data from my web app as follows: Asp.net MVC website --> WCF Client (Has my Service References) --> My Services (MyServices.svc) --> Business/Data Tier Everything is being executed from within VS 2008 Pro.   Now I have successfully sent data up to 2.2MB, however it fails if i try and send a file such as 2.3MB or larger i get the following exceptions: General Exception Exception rethrown at [0]:    at System.Runtime.Remoting.Proxies.RealProxy.HandleReturnMessage(IMessage reqMsg, IMessage retMsg)   at System.Runtime.Remoting.Proxies.RealProxy.PrivateInvoke(MessageData& msgData, Int32 type)   at SoftApp.WCFClient.MyServiceReference.IMyService.Document_Save(DtoDocument dtoDocument, Int32 usercode)   at SoftApp.WCFClient.MyServiceReference.MyServiceClient.Document_Save(DtoDocument dtoDocument, Int32 usercode) in c:\dev\softapp\softapp.wcfclient\service references\myservicereference\refe

URGENT: Remote Host DB Returns Login Failure on All Databases

Hi, I have a mixture of sites hosted in various places powered by multiple databases located at the same place. Today the sites that had been finished a while ago and operating just fine on autopilot with no recent work done started returning login errors, but I also believe I saw an error related to the connection refusing remote connections the first time I saw it. I opened a ticket with my host and it has been listed as "In Progress" for the past three hours now with no improvement.I am hoping someone here might have a better idea how to handle this than they do.I tried adding new users and changing my main login password on their Paralles H-Sphere control panel, but every time I click submit I get an unkown error that the change could not be done. Every dynamic page on all of my sites whose databases are hosted there look like this: Server Error in '/' Application. Login failed for user 'MyUserName'. Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code. Exception Details: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Login failed for user 'MyUserName'. Source Error: An unhandled exception was gener

An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host


I would like some assistance with this. I have a distributed application that uses TCP .NET Remoting for communication between the server and client computers. 

I am pretty sure the issue is network related because the application is currently running at multiple clients, it is running in instances where the UI on the client connects to the server over a TCP port over the internet. In this client's case, they have two sites in two different cities. The main site (where the server is located), the users connecting to the server are working fine. Even I can connect from my office if I connect via a VPN connection to their network. However, the other users from the other town, get the error "An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host" and their IT cannot seem to fix this.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

They've already done the following tests:
  • They can ping the server from the other site's computers
  • They can get an open connection when attempting a Telnet session
  • When using a sniffer to monitor the connection, they can see traffic flowing back and forth from the user machine to the server
  • On the firewall they have a

VS2010 Professional .NET 4.0 Remote Debugging ASP Website Project


Trying to remote debug ASP website from VS2010 Pro to Windows Server 2003 machine.  Specifically, trying to debug a Web Service, but breakpoint says, "The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for this document."  This happens for all compiled code though.  I have read this is due to missing PDB files and the work around is to manually copy them, as noted here.  Problem is, I cannot find any PDB files for my project, except referenced libraries, which I can remote debug.


  • web.config has <compilation debug="true">
  • Debugger is attached to wewp.exe process on remote server
  • Installed VS2010 remote debugger from DVD (as I can remote debug referenced libraries)

This is beyond frustrating.  I migrated my code from VS2008 .Net3.5 to VS2010 .Net4.0 to take advantage of the inherent multithreading framework.  Debugging works when using local host and was stable until deployment to test server.

Thanks in advance,


How do I preserve __viewstate between cross domain posts or how do I get a __viewstate of a Remote S


Here is what I want to do:
I have a local site in which I want to display data from a remote site
Lets say: I want to display data of http://www.abc.com/Default.aspx on my localhost

Now Default.aspx requires some post-data which it sends to itself. Thus the __viewstate and __eventvalidation are posted back to it by itself. I want to directly post the data to Default.aspx from localhost without opening Default.aspx and display the Default.aspx's response on my localhost.

The WebApp on http://www.abc.com is configured for __eventvalidation i.e. I cannot post-data to it from my localhost without getting a __viewstate from it. I also have to post the current __viewstate of http://www.abc.com/Default.aspx to itself

How can I accomplish it?

// accountNumber  = dr["accountNumber "].ToString();

txtAccountNumber.Text = Cryptographer.DecryptSymmetric("RijndaelManaged", accountNumber );

However when I try and decrypt it I get the following error...

Web Deployment with IIS settings of remote server


Im trying to deploy a web application project (VS 2010) via team build (TFS 2010), i got to use IIS settings of development server for deployment. So from the project properties I configured the web projects to use Custom web server, (enabled radio button), once i do this the Option in the tab Package/Publish Web "Include all IIS Settings as configured in IIS manager" gets disabled and as a result the deployed web project does not have this IIS settings.

What am I missing here, Im not using the option "Use local IIS Web Server" because the build happens in a build server and would try to take local IIS settings for packaging which is not present.

If this is not possible, suggest me any workaround. Any help on this is greatly appreciated.
