Security :: Opening A Folder Through Website?

Mar 24, 2011

I am maintaining an ASP website and the users want to be able to click on a link that open up a folder where they could select which file they want from within that folder.

I tried to making a link with the tag <a href=[folderpath]>Text</a> but I can a 403 HTTP error saying that the website requires a login for this action. Is there some way that I could send the person's credentials along with the request so the folder can be opened?

Opening A Folder In A New Browser?

Sep 13, 2010

Developing a web application in C# which stores files in a tree structure in a server.

A project ( eg: ABC) has many sub folders (eg: ABC_sub1,ABC_Sub2...etc) . Each sub folder will have many types of files. (Eg: .dat,.txt .... etc)

I have stored the project name and the path to the parent folder ( in this case ABC) in a database.

Eg: \sereverNameTestMyProjectABC

What I need to do is when a user selects a given project ( eg; ABC) & clicks the link button component called "browse" to open the folder (\sereverNameTestMyProjectABC) in a new window.

This is the code I thought would work.

protected void LinkButtonFolderBorwse_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
string myPath = @HiddenFieldFolderLocation.Value;
System.Diagnostics.Process prc = new System.Diagnostics.Process();
prc.StartInfo.FileName = myPath;

HiddenFieldFolderLocation.Value gets the path of the parent folder (\sereverNameTestMyProjectABC).

When I click the link button nothing happens.

Configuration :: Opening A File With Process.Start Outside Root Folder?

Nov 6, 2010

So, I have a webForm that has an ImageButton. This ImageButton has to open a file (said file is uploaded by the user in another web form. The file is saved to \serverNamefiles; it can be a doc file, pdf file, excel file).

So this ImageButton should open said file as you normally would. It works on debug, however when I publish my site, and run it from my localhost, it doesn't open the file. When I click the ImageButton it just does the postback and nothing happens.

The code for the ImageButton is just:


fileName has the full path of the file I want to open, in this case it has: \serverNamefilesmyFile.pdf

Web Forms :: Folder To Store WebControl, Without Actually Creating That Folder On Website

Dec 16, 2010

I want to create a folder to store some web controls, so the site structure doesn't have a zillion files in the root.

Except that if I create an ordinary folder, that folder is also visible on the web site. MSDN said you cannot put it in App_Code, and it doesn't really make sense to put it in other special folder like App_Data or App_Theme.

Visual Studio :: Disable C# Prompt When Opening Website?

May 4, 2010

In both VS 2008 and VS 2010 when we open websites using FILE > OPEN WEBSITE we get a prompt asking us if we want to convert the website to .Net 3.5 or .Net 4.0.

I know once you answer it wont ask again for that site, but it gets annoying when we have alot of websites. We cannot convert the sites because the servers they run on are too old.

Is there a way to disable this prompt permanently?

Security :: Opening A Webpage Impersonating The User?

Sep 16, 2010

I have a WebApplication1 running in a port (let's say 4000) and I'm trying to build a website (WebSite1), running on IIS, that is running on the same server. I have no control over the WebApplication1, it's a packaged software, WebSite1 is built by me.

The WebSite1 will do a custom user validation and then will let the user access the WebApplication1:4000 under the impersonated user under which the website is running, not the user in the client machine. Sort of like changing the user in the session.

Security :: Folder Security / How To Block Anonymous Users

Jan 12, 2010

I have a web page where I am denying anonymous users from accessing. In the web site I have a folder called FileManager. In the web app the usres have the ability to uploaded files and when they do a folder gets created under the filmanger and the files are saved. I have created a web.config in this folder that denies anonymous users. The problem is if the user knows the directory structure they can type in the url of the site add /FilManager/x/x/NameOfFile, where x are the sub directories. If the file is an image it shows the image in ie, if it is a .xls or .doc or what ever they get the prompt to either download or save the file. What am I doing wrong. Will the web.config file not stop an anonymous user from access files? I put a webpage in the folder and it is blocked and the user gets sent to the login screen, but files seem to be unsecured.

How do I block anonymous users from being able to access the files in this folder?

Security :: Admin And User Security Folder Setup

Mar 11, 2011

I am creating an application hosted on The base files are kept in a folder called /sky while the Admin files and User files are kept in /sky/Admin and /sky/User respectively. I'm having difficulty configuring the security so that when a user tries to access Admin or User files they should be redirected to the login.aspx file in the /sky folder. I keep getting an error that its trying to access sky/sky/login.aspx instead of just sky/login.aspx.

Here are the relevant sections of my web.config file.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<location path="sky/admin">
<allow roles="Admin" />
<deny users="*"/>
<location path="user">
<allow roles="Admin,User" />
<deny users="*"/>
<customErrors mode="Off" />
<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms name="login" loginUrl="login.aspx" />

Can someone point me to articles or provide assistance with the proper configuration?

C# - Remove Project Folder From Website URL?

Mar 21, 2011

I have a c# website project in visual studio 2010, and all of my .aspx pages are currently being stored in a ~/Forms directory. The problem is that when I want to go to any web pages, they are all prefixed with "http://localhost:000/Forms/", when what I really want is "http://localhost:000/". So, "http://localhost:000/AboutUs.aspx" instead of "http://localhost:000/Forms/AboutUs.aspx". What is the preferred way to deal with a situation like this? I don't want to rig anything up.

Configuration :: Cannot Delete A Folder In A Website

Dec 13, 2010

On our website, we have an application within our website. The following is the folder structure:

website1 (main website)
bin directory1
website2(an application)
bin directory2

There are other folders under each of the main folders which contain other pages, images, etc.

We're trying to upgrade the website and are encountering some difficulties. We want to remove the website2 from the main website to see it it's causing the problem.

However, we cannot remove the bin folder and so we can't remove the website2 folder. We've been able to delete everything but the bin folder itself. We've tried downing the website and the application pool but we still get the 'access denied' error message.
