Http - Is There A Simple(ish) Way To Route All Requests To The Server
Oct 5, 2010
Here's the big picture. We're running a server in IIS 6 that hosts several web sites and applications, and we're in the process of moving the whole thing to a different data center with a slightly different setup. We've notified our users and updated our DNS info so that theoretically everyone will be happily hitting the new server from day 1, but we know that someone will inevitably fall through the cracks.
The powers that be want a "Listener" page/handler that will receive all requests to the server and log the entire request to a text file, including (especially) POST data.
That's where I'm stuck. I don't know how to implement a single handler that will receive all requests to the server. I vaguely understand IIS 6 redirection options, but they all seem to lose the POST data on the redirect. I also know a little about IIS 6's built-in logging, but it ignores POST data as well.
Is there a simple(ish) way to route all requests to the server so that they all hit a single handler, while maintaining post data?
What's the simplest and most effective way to selectively redirect HTTP requests to your ASP.NET page to its HTTPS equivalent? For example, if my page site URL is [URL], I want to redirect some (or all) page requests to [URL] What's the easiest way to do that?
I use four different update panels, that use the same timer as trigger.
1) Will the 4 update panels create 4 different HTTP requests to the server? 2) I'm using 4 different panels as the controls are located in different parts of the page, is there a way of putting them in the same update panel? 3) Is this a good coding practice?
Is it possible to send multiple HTTP requests asynchronously to an ASP.NET web site or any other web server using .NET ? And, then. collect responses from those requests as they come using .NET asynchronous paradigm ? Is it possible ? Or would there still be limit of max 2 HTTP connections from .NET using HTTP ?
For an ASP.NET 4.0 / IIS7 web app, I would like to support compressed HTTP requests. Basically, I would like to support clients that would add Content-Encoding: gzip in the request headers, and compress the body accordingly.
I'm currently reading a lot about node.js. There is a frequent comparison between servers using a traditional thread per request model (Apache), and servers that use an event loop (Nginx, node, Tornado).
I would like to learn in detail about how a request is processed in ASP.NET - from the point it is received in http.sys all the way up to it being processed in ASP.NET itself. I've found the MSDN documentation on http.sys and IIS a little lacking, but perhaps my google-fu is weak today. So far, the best resource I have found is a post on Thomas Marquardt's Blog.
Could anyone shed more light on the topic, or point me to any other resources?
The objective of this component is to be able to forward whatever HTTP requests it receives to forward to a different server based on the parameters but keeping the URL and POST data intact. For example:
If the component receives
It will return the response from either
where XYZ can be valid name of the page. I think I can probably individually create each page to do a Response.Redirect but i am wondering if there is a more generic way to do this? In addition, is this something I have to configure on the IIS level rather than code level?
I have a long poll HTTP request using ASP.NET 4, MVC 2 and AsyncController. If a user closes their browser and kills the HTTP connection without the request completing, I'd like to know about it and completely clean up after them. If I don't, the open and incomplete requests just sit there and eventually IIS stops accepting new requests.
You can simulate my long running HTTP request by making a normal ASP.NET application with a page that has a Thread.Sleep. Even if you close the browser, the request carries on as if it hasn't.
There is a property called Response.IsClientConnected that gets switched to false if the client disconnects, and I can poll this to achieve the desired effect but it's not very clean and I'd like to avoid polling. Is there a way of getting notified when this happens rather than having to poll this property?
I have this simple html page that talks to a microchip. It turns a LED light on and off.
Can someone give me some pointers on how to convert the above to asp.net. I have put two asp:buttons on a webForm. Then for the button clickevent of the btnOn would I use something this like this? Or is WebRequest the wrong concept to use? I can seem to get this code to work for me!
Hi! OK, I'm quite new to web developing and this is a bit difficult to define abstractly so I'll say exactly what I'm trying to do:
I have an asp.net website running on my server. I want to have other websites to have a button which redirects to a specific URL. This URL is determined during the creation (server side) of the other website. I want the other website to request that URL by supplying certain parameters. I'll create the URL accordingly and return a response which contains the URL.
To clarify: User browses other website, gets to page which is supposed to have said button, other website requests URL, supplies params, receives URL and creates page with button with URL received.
It's important to me that this works with any platform of "other" website. What is the simplest way to do this?
I am having problem redirecting error when error is http 500 or http 403 locally running this site there is no problem it gets redirected to my errorpage.aspx. But when deployed at server, it does not get .tried putting try and catch in page_load and in global.asax and I have set Application_Error to redirect to that page and also set <customErrors defaultRedirect to that page also
