    Allow any device to post file on the server


    Hi there,


    I am having an issue with the web server due to my luck of knowledge of how the web server work. I have a number a network devices (switches, routers etc) which use http to put log files on the Abyss server.


    At the moment itís not working and using wireshark i can see Abyss is replying with an authentication error (the network deviceís do not have the permission to put the log file on the server using http PUT). So my question is on Abyss how do I allow any device to post file on the server. In this environment security is not an issue.

    Thanks
    Alexis

    Hi there,


    I am having an issue with the web server due to my luck of knowledge of how the web server work. I have a number a network devices (switches, routers etc) which use http to put log files on the IIS server.


    At the moment itís not working and using wireshark i can see ISS is replying with an authentication error (the network deviceís do not have the permission to put the log file on the server using http PUT). So my question is on ISS how do I allow any device to post file on the server. In this environment security is not an issue.

    It sounds like you're asking a windows file permissions question. You need to use windows acl's to allow the IIS user account permission to the files in question. And remember if your IIS users authenticate, IIS will impersonate authenticated users, so you may want to create a user group containing the proper users (and the default IIS user account) and give the group permission to the files.

    Thanks for the help. You have given me enough information to be getting on with to find a solution.
