How to set up web access?

What to do if the website does not work under Win7?

  • Check if ASP.NET is also installed within the IIS components (that is, add-in programs, Windows components, Web services, Application development features),
  • check if rcweb is set up as an application in IIS (but it should if it was installed by the installer).
  • Is .NET2 or .NET1.1 installed on the computer? (it works somewhere under .NET1.1, but in many other places under .NET2, in Windows components you can add some ASP.NET to IIS, and then call the aspnet_regiis.exe)
  • Then you need to look into the IIS manager…:

- eg. here,
- the ApplicationPool used must be set to Classic mode (not Integrated); it is possible to change the application pool identity for the Local system user,
- set ISAPI & CGI restrictions to allowed - it's in the IIS manager at the top of the "computer", if they are not there, then install IIS ASP.NET support in the System Properties.

Notes when trying to install on Windows7:

  1. 1. When installing RcWare Web Extensions (RcWare installer), the WebGateSetup.msi file can also be installed. For safety other than the C: Program Files directory.
  2. 2. There are differences when adding programs in Windows XP Professional and Win7. The names in Win7 are: Start - Control Panel - Programs and Features - Enable or disable Windows features. There is a very bushy tree for IIS, in which you need to check almost everything except the FTP server. An installation CD is not required, but a PC restart is required twice.
  3. 3. C:WINDOWSMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv1.1.4322aspnet_regiis.exe -i “- run the command line as an administrator first.
  4. 4. Copy the "rcweb" directory to the c: inetpubwwwroot directory. Via the rcwebSetup.msi installer. First it is necessary to enable changes in the "wwwroot" directory in Windows7, then copy the "rcweb" directory from WinXP to it.
  5. 5. If the virtual directory "rcweb" is not created, it must be done manually via c:WindowsSystem32inetsrviis.msc (so-called "IIS Manager"). Right-click on "Default Web Site" and "Add Application". Alternatively, add a virtual directory and then execute the application.
  6. 6. In the IIS Manager in the Application Pools, it may be recommended to click Managed Channel Mode to Classic.
  7. 7. The command can also be tried:% SystemRoot% system32inetsrvappcmd migrate config "Default Web Site /"
  8. 8. Another tip might be to edit the rights to the c: WindowsMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv2.0.50727Temporary ASP.NET Files directory.

The web server should also work under Win 8. A special hotfix is ​​required to install RcWare Vision under Win. The WebGate installer works, directories with the web need to be uploaded there manually - similarly to Win 7.

What to watch out for in Win10, when a web server "somehow" runs but reports an error other than 404:

  • if "Application Development Components", "ASP.NET" is installed in the Windows components under IIS, and then
  • v In IIS, enable the .NET4 classic app pool in "ISAPI and CGI Restrictions".
