Blog Entry: 3/25/2006 1:45:32 PM

I am having difficulties importing new Users.

I have exported the existing list and then copied in the additional users and save the file as text (tab delimited) in Exel.

When I go to import the file (browse then upload) I get the following error:

Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a03f9'

Expected 'Then'

/aspprotect/password_admin/upload_post.asp, line 6

If Session("Admin") <> "True"



If I upload the text file by FTP and then try to import it it only tends to import the first two existing rows.

All collumns match but not sure if I need to add "User_ID". I have added it and created consequecutive numbers.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks



, Hello,

I want to create a user for my manager. This user should be able to see all statistics (Reports) and all (Banners). But, he should not be able to edit anything.

How can I create the type of user described above?


Best regards,

This article from my old powerasp.com site explains what Server.MapPath is and also why you can't use it to specify the data connection in any of the CJWSoft applications.

Use ASP to determine the Physical Path Of Your Virtual Website

As this article mentions you can still use it to determine the path, but you can't use it in our data connection strings because the data connection page is an include file and server.mappath will report back different paths for the different directories....... meaning it will work in one directory level but not another as the path will be different.

Hello,

My guess your having trouble setting up a system dsn because the database has a password set on it. Your hosting company most likely sets up DSNs without using the advanced tab which is where the authentication information goes. Or they have some sort of web interface for the customers to use that doesnt allow setting up that information.System DSNs are actually difficult to set up correctly when the database has a password on it. There is of course a password on the database for security reasons so if someone ever downloads it somehow they will not get your information.

System DSNs are not the way to go regardless as you will see mentioned at our support site.

http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=9&P N=1

 

You really should try setting up a DSN-less connection. It is the best way to go. They are easier to set up, perform better, and are less load on the server. Any host that wants it customers to use system dsns is not on the ball as far as server performance and server resource conservation goes. They are really asking for trouble down the road.

All you need to do to make dsn-less connection is the following.

Get permissions set for the folder the database is in (by your host) then figure out the physical path on the server to the database by using server.mappath or you simply ask your host for the info.

An article I wrote on using server.mappath

http://www.powerasp.com/content/hintstips/physical-path.asp

Then your connection string will look something like this.. (of course you edit the path to match what server.mappath tells you. And you make sure the database name is correct)

ListingsConnectionString = "DBQ=C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\asplistings\_database\asplistings_ac cess2000.mdb;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=Admin;Password=temp"

Another option would be to simply remove the password from the database using MSACCESS.. then try to connect to it using a System DSN without the password. If your host is storing the databases outside of your web in the root of the server then removing the password on the database is not that bad of a thing to do as there is no way anyone will be able to dload it from your site. Of course there is a still a performace loss when using a system dsn with an Access Database

cwilliams38145.8540509259,

well, assuming that function works and is vbscript not vb
(if it is vb code it may need some conversion work)

anyway

in "users/add_new_account.asp"

you would put the code for that function anywhere in the page.. it does not matter where as long as it is in code tags <% %>

then.. right under this part of the same page

If Zipcode_Postal_Code_Required = True Then
 If  Zipcode_Postal_Code = "" Then
  ErrorMessage = ErrorMessage & Server.URLEncode("You need to enter a Zipcode_Postal_Code.\n\n")
 End IF
End If


add this

If Check_Postcode(Zipcode_Postal_Code) <> True Then
  ErrorMessage = ErrorMessage & Server.URLEncode("You need to enter a Valid Zipcode_Postal_Code.\n\n")
End If

No guarantees but that is the gist of it

cwilliams38381.6456828704,



ASPProtect v7.x runs on Microsoft IIS servers only.
That means Windows XP Pro, Windows 2000 server and Windows 2003 server. The web server must have ASP support enabled and support Data Connections. 99% of them do as it's a pretty normal thing, but you should ask and make sure your hosting plan supports it.


Before you even start please read this thread and do what it says.
If any errors show up it is important you see the real error instead of a useless HTTP 500 internal server error.

http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=11& PN=1

Once doing that make sure to use Internet Explorer as you follow along with these directions.

Now, unzip your installation zip file that you downloaded from CJWSoft.
Use a program like winzip and be sure you have it set up to unzip the directories as well. You can also use windows xp's built in folder compression tools to unzip the archive.

When you unzip the application you should have all of the following folders and files. (more or less, it depends on the version)



Now, you can copy all of these files into the root of your website or if you like you can make a folder called "aspprotect" and put all of these folders and files in that folder. Either way it really does not matter.

Now, contact your web hosting company and instruct them that you need permissions set on the data folder that you copied into your website. This folder and all of its child folders need modify permissions set on it for the anonymous webserver account. It is very important that they set the permissions correctly and on all the child folders as well.

Here are some threads on exactly how these permissions are set.
If you run your own server or are developing locally you can do this yourself. If not most likely you need to put in a request to your hosting company as you CAN NOT set these permissions via Frontpage or FTP.

Windows 2003 Server and permissions
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=136& ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ;PN=1

Windows XP Pro and permissions
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=56& PN=1

Once permissions are set.. run this page via your web browser

http://www.mysite.com/data/setup_info.asp

Replacing the part in blue with your website info.

When this page is run it will report back a screen like so:



Now, take the connection string info it shows you.
Edit the "dataconn_inc.asp" file in the root of the ASPProtect system and use that data connection information. It should be valid for the server.

If you are using MSSQL server instead of Access please see the SQL database creation directions as you will need to create the MSSQL database and use a special connection string for that.
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=160& ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ;PN=1


Now, take the CookieEncryptionKey and PasswordEncryptionKey info that it gives you and enter it into the "config_inc.asp" file in the root of the ASPProtect system. These will be the unique keys that your encryption will be based off of.

Ok...

The files have been copied to your website, the permissions are set on the data folder, and the database connection is ready.

Now.. run this page

http://www.mysite.com/password_admin/get_me_in.asp

Replacing the part in blue with your website info.

This is a special page we use to get into the system for the 1st time.

If you get a nasty error when you run that page similar to this.

Error Type:
Active Server Pages, ASP 0131 (0x80004005)
The Include file '../dataconn_inc.asp' cannot contain '..' to indicate the parent directory.


Then parent paths are disabled on the webserver and you need to do an extra step to deal with that. Follow this link.
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=162& ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ;PN=1&TPN=1

If you get any other variery of "80004005" error then there is a problem with your data connection.
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=27& PN=1

Those errors are usualy related to database folder permissions or an imcorrect physical path to the database file specified though they can mean a lot of things.


Once you get the page running you will see a login prompt and one form field

You will need to paste the "PasswordEncryptionKey" value that you used in the "config_inc.asp" file in the form field and hit enter.

If all goes well you will see the admin area of ASPProtect.

Now that you are in the system you need to create an admin account.

Click on "ADD NEW USER".. fill out the info and add a user.
You really only need to fill out (first name,last name,email,username,and password)

Now save that user.

You should see a new user listed in the admin area. Click on Edit user to the left of the new account. On the edit screen check the "admin" checkbox and save the user.

You just created an Admin account.

Now click on the "log off" button on the top menu and click yes to log off.

Now close the browser. Then run this URL

http://www.mysite.com/password_admin/default.asp

Replacing the part in blue with your website info.

You should now be able to in to the admin area of the system using the new admin account you created.

You are now ready to go to the settings page so click on the settings tab in the menu. There are a lot of options and paths that need to be set on this page. Every setting is described in detail on this page. You need to go through the page and set things up properly. Anytime the page asks for a path to a url or file the page will auto generate what should be the path to use. (expected path) If your server has parent paths disabled a few of those auto generated paths will not show up. If that is the case run this url from your server and it should tell you the paths to use for those settings.

http://www.mysite.com/data/expected_paths.asp

Replacing the part in blue with your website info.

Once your all done and the system seems to be running fine you should go back and delete the following pages as they are no longer needed and pose a potential security risk.

http://www.mysite.com/data/setup_info.asp
http://www.mysite.com/data/expected_paths.asp
http://www.mysite.com/password_admin/get_me_in.asp

You should back up the original zip archive you got from CJWSoft in case you ever need those files again.

VERY IMPORTANT: The user passwords from now on will be encrypted using the "PasswordEncryptionKey" you specified in the "config_inc.asp" file.

If you ever change that key all of your passwords will be invalid and you can not get them back unless you know the key and put it back, so plan on never changing that key unless you really know what your doing and know how to decrypt/re-encrypt the passwords using a new key. (something we do not cover at the moment but probably will when we have time to make a tutorial) 

,

again I will ask you what is the real error??

see the link above when I asked you the 1st time.
(I need the error details and line number.. etc etc)

and what kind of a server are you trying to run it on ?
you mention xp pro but in a confusing way ?

, I do not what is going on at this time. It is not a known issue.
If is is not working it would seem to be a problem with the application variables on the server possibly and your web.

Perhaps try installing it on a local machine and see if it works for testing sake.

Also.. if your stuck with the black skin you could always just edit the information in the that skins folder to get the app looking the way you want.

That and the header and footer files that comes with the app are what control the look of the system.
cwilliams38294.5880208333, Any updates on this ?,

Disallowed Parent Path

The Include file '../dataconn_inc.asp' cannot contain '..' to indicate the parent directory. 

When you get an error like this it is because parent paths are disabled on the web server. This is a setting in the IIS console for your website.

If it is not enabled on you server you will have to ask your host to enable parent paths for your website.

This is what the settings screen looks like on an XP Machine



Additional Information:

It is enabled by default on IIS4-IIS5 but in IIS6 it is disabled by default.
It is a minor security risk to have enabled and some hosts can be difficult about setting it.

Truth is, if your hosting ASP for customers you need to enable this setting if the customer requests it. Especially since 90% of the ASP applications out there require the setting.

Hosting companies should if they are serious about hosting ASP.


If they won't your only option is to go through all the code and convert the file includes to virtual includes.

http://www.powerasp.com/content/code-snippets/includes.asp

The trouble with virtual includes is they are different depending on the layout of your website. (that's why web application developers generally don't use them)

Basically if you are in a sub domain the path for the virtual include is going to be different then if you were in the root.. etc etc

Also.. someone developing on a local machine would need totally different virtual includes on the development server than they would on the live server. Server Side includes are processed before ASP so there is no way to make them SMART, so to speak. Server Side includes are hardcoded and that's that.

In my opinion virtual includes are pretty useless for commercial web based applications...  Since you don't know where the customers plan to install the apps.
And YES there are some tricks when designing the applications that make it less of an issue but they are not perfect solutions.

For example...

The virtual include below would work if the application or code was installed in the root
<!--#include virtual = /somefile.asp"-->

But if the application or code was installed in a directory called "somedirectory" the virtual include directive would need to look like this

<!--#include virtual = "/somedirectory/somefile.asp"-->

cwilliams38391.6033101852,

I encountered a problem that I haven't been able to solve. I'm trying to get .pdf files to byte serve (page-by-page load in the browser) but unable to do so. I've narrowed it down to stream download file where it creates the header object. I haven't made any success with the changes I've tried. Any help would be very nice.

This maybe useful:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/e n-us/act/htm/actml_ref_href.asp



, yes, dont worry about that. It is not checkking permissions just explaining things.

and dont worry about the extra slash it seems to be adding at the end of the path. That is normal. I guess I need to fix that so it does not add that extra slash.,

Access Database Password

By default all of the Access Databases we give out have a default password of "temp"

The Default username that and Access database uses is "Admin" but you should not be concerned with that except in your connection strings.

The default password for the Access Database can only be changed using Microsoft Access to do so. If you have security concerns it would make sense to change the password. The help system built into Microsoft Access best explains how to do that.

Which page should a user see next after completing a Paypal transaction?  Where do I set that?

Nick

 

,

If you are using version 6 CDOSYS is not supported. That is one reason why version 7 came out. If you want to rewrite the code to work with CDOSYS in version 6 that is something you need to sort out on your own as I do not support custimization to the code.

,

Here is the complete page with the error message:

============================================================ ===

Unspecified error



This means there is most likely a problem with the "ConnectionString" info that you specified.

If you are using a DSN-Less Connection with MSACCESS.

Check that the physical path to the database has been specified correctly.
It has to be perfect and correct. It cannot be specified using "http://" or by using "server.mappath".
It has to be specified like the following example.

ConnectionString = "DBQ=C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\advpass_pro\_database\passwords.mdb;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=admin;PASSWORD=Xpass"

If this is running on an NT server or Win2000 Server make sure that permissions have been set on the database.
Only the server admins can do this. If you are not the admin you will have to ask for this to be done.



If you are using a System DSN

It is not set up correctly. Again, make sure the permissions have been set for the database and that the system DSN has been set up correctly by the server admins.

============================================================ ===

I am the only one on the site since I just transferred the files and in the testing phase.  It is using an MSAccess DB

 

, I will give you permission to move it since you asked.,

We do not support customization of the code or any custom coding you may end up doing with Visual Studio.NET. However, if you can show me that the application functions incorrectly in its default unmodified form I can help. If not it has to be something you did most likely.

Though I do not if it is the issue, mixing c# and vb.net in the same project can be tricky if not problematic. Its definitely just not something I can support.

If you have not seen it we have tuturial on setting up the project in visual studio.net.
http://support.cjwsoft.com/code/moreinfo85-1.htm

I would suggest starting with a clean installation. Test everything to make sure the things you say are ok or not. (if not post here about it) Then try your hand at editing the application and compiling it. Keep the c# out of the mix at 1st.

I am not even sure if adding c# to the same project is feasable.
(maybe it is , maybe it isn't)

That being said.. ASPProtect.NET can of course be used to protect pages using c#. But compiling the ASPProtect.NET project with C# code added sounds a bit iffy to me. We wrote the application in VB.NET so you really need to use vb.net when making changes to it.

,

Is there any way to extend the limit multiple login feature to a certain number instead all or none?  In other words, i need to have a user be able to use the same login for x number of people.  My customers are institutions and want to be able to have a single login for however many users they purchase for.

Upgrade from V6 to v7.x with an MSSQL SERVER DATABASE

1st of all, backup your existing ASPProtect files and database before performing this upgrade. Please be really careful while performing this upgrade. Version 7.x  is a highly advanced application compared to any previous versions. CJWSoft under no circumstances is responsible if you lose information or have website downtime.

BOTTOM LINE: (PERFORM THIS UPGRADE AT YOUR OWN RISK)

To do this upgrade you're going to need to have SQL Enterprise Manager and SQL Query Analyzer

That being said, on with the upgrade..


Open your SQL database in SQL Enterprise Manager

Regarding the following Tables

Rename "Users" to "ASPP_Users"
Rename "Groups" to "ASPP_Groups"

If you do not have a "Groups" table do not worry about it right now.

Now right click and DELETE the Config Table.
Yes, delete it..

Now, go into Design View for the "ASPP_Users" Table.

Rename the "Password" field to "Old_Password"
Be sure to spell it perfectly using the Underscore

If you have a "Groups" Field... leave it alone
If you do not have a "Groups" Field add one and make it a "nvarchar" field with a lengh of 255.

Now, we are going to add a few more new fields.

Add a field called "Redirection_URL" make it a "nvarchar" field with a lengh of 150.
Add a field called "PayPal_Subscriber_ID" make it a "nvarchar" field with a lengh of 100.
Add a field called "Newsletter" and make it a "bit" field
Add a field called "Password" and make it a "nvarchar" field with a lengh of 100.

Now close that window and save the changes..

Download these scripts.

2005-02-23_171110_aspprotect_v7_sql_upgrade_scripts.zip

Now open up SQL Query Analyzer
Connect to your SQL server.

Then load the script  "aspprotect_v7_config_table.sql" into the Query Analyzer.  Click the green play button at the top. If everything goes well the response should read something like this.

******************************************************
(1 row(s) affected)
******************************************************

Now, if you had a Groups Table your done with the database changes.

If you didnt have a groups table.

Then load the script  "aspprotect_v7_groups_table.sql" into the Query Analyzer.  Click the green play button at the top.

Now, go back to your database in Enterprise Manager and make sure all 3 tables are there and look ok. You might need to do a refresh or two to see them.

Now make sure an existing or new SQL user has (public / datareader / datawriter) permissions for all three tables. You reference this user in the asp code connection string so this user must be set up correctly. You may need your SQL server admins or hosting company to help you on this step as you may not have access to do this. You may not need to create a user and set permissions as the sql user you were logged in as to use query analyzer may by default get the correct permissions on anything you create.

Regardless, as you can see from this screenshot I have a SQL user called "aspprotectuser" and proceeded to set the permissions for that user. Under database access giving him (public,datareader, and datewriter permissions).


Now, you are done upgrading your SQL Server Database.

The existing passwords still have to be encrytped and moved from the "Old_Password" to the "Password" field

To that we have a special page we run in the application that will take care of that.

So, for now... go install the application, but using the database we just created.
Follow these instructions for the most part...
http://support.cjwsoft.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=181& ; ;PN=1

When you get to the part where you finally get into the admin area and need to make an admin account you will notice that your existing user database is there but none of the users have passwords if you look at them in the edit screen.

That is normal. Simply do what the instructions say and create and admin account using a username that does not exist..

Then log off... then back in as that new admin account. If that works you are ready to convert the passwords.

This part is very easy.

You want to run a special page via the browser.

http://www.mysite.com/password_admin/convert_to_encrypted.asp

Replacing the part in blue with your website info.

Once you get the page running you will see a login prompt and one form field just like before with the "get_me_in.asp" page

You will need to paste the "PasswordEncryptionKey" value that you used in the "config_inc.asp" file in the form field and hit enter.

If all goes well you will see a page telling you to click here to encrypt the passwords and copy them over.

So do what it says... dont click more than once and wait.

Eventually it should say it is finished. So go log in to the admin area of the system using the new admin account.

Now edit some users but dont save... you want to see if the passwords are showing up. If they are the conversion worked. If you see nothing or a garbled mess it did not work and you made a mistake during this whole process.

If things went well backup and delete the conversion file below.

http://www.mysite.com/password_admin/convert_to_encrypted.asp

You do not need it anymore.

Once you are positive every thing is running smoothly and everyone's passwords are ok you can go in and delete the "Old_Password" field as well.



If things didnt go well.. try again from scratch and go slowly.
If they still dont go well get ahold of us for help.

We are here to help, but if you really want us to we can be hired to do the conversion.

,

humm.. can I possibly see this happening ?
any changes to that part of the code ?

 

, You can not edit that code with dreamweaver. It will re-arrange the asp and kill it.
If you want to change the look of the login html you have to edit the html by hand in a text editor.

Or create what you want on a blank page using your editor of choice and carefully use parts of that in the ASPProtect code.

In version 7 the login screen is one asp page by itself and is much easier to edit with just about any editor. In version 6 you have to know your html and be careful.

Either way I am not sure templates are a good idea for something like that. That sort of thing tends to cause problems with dynamic code that executes under different directory levels. You want to stick to regular html techniques. , yes, like it says it is expirimental

turn it off.. the banner system will run just as fast for the most part

or leave it on and an occasional user will see a permission denied error where a banner will be,
Yeah, its working great witht he Access database. Now I just need to get it all set up. I like how the config file is set up with all the comments, it really helped allieviate the 40k thumbnails, .
 
One quick question though, and I haven't looked through all the code yet... Is there a quick way to have pic_window.asp open full screen by default? I just want to minimize having to either scroll through, or maximize, the screen
 
Thanks!!!

Any ideas

Jason Johnson

, ok, I am going to do that in the next few hours. I cant do it right now as I have a few other business's and something else needs my attention right now.

Chris,

Hi, I haven't heard anything from you.

Has this issue been resolved ?

Thanks

,

This first one may be an obvious one, but is it only .asp files that I can protect as in no HTML files.

Can the program be set to protect my whole https directory contents (though the answer to the last question may have bearing here - there are html files as well as .asp in there) as in http://secure.mydomain.com

Thanks in advance

,

so use the connection string the readme.txt in the sql installation folder file tells you to... it has the correct username.. I just posted that info above

or change the username in the connection string so its rigfht

or go into sql and give any user you want access to the database and use them



Any connection strings that come in the datacon_inc.asp file the way it ships are examples. We fully expect people to edit them.

Also.. the SQL scripts primarly goal is give you a properly set up database with correct files and table settings. Users and permissions often need a little extra attention from the installer as that part doesn't always get set right by the scripts It really all depends on what sql user you are when you execute the scripts. Many times the user someone logs in with doesn't have permission to make users and set permissions.

cwilliams38325.9116898148,

Sorry Chris,

It didn't fix it.  Looks like I had the current code.  I bought the system in mid-April.  The version says 3-10-2005.

I do know that in the database, the password shows as " G"  but in the error code, it shows as " G".  The square character is missing. 

Thanks,
Mick

Edit: well heck.  It skips the square box here too.  The password in the database puts a square box in front of the G

,

it might also be a good idea for you to try a simple text file writing example like this on your server and see if it hangs as well

http://www.devasp.com/samples/writetofile.asp

for troubleshooting sake

this is sounding more and more like the filesystem object is blocked or disabled on your server

,

You would carefully use the built in features of access to import/export data.

The password for our databases is noted in the documentation. It's pretty hard to miss really. You can also see the database password by looking at the connection string info.

different versions may be different but it is usually "temp" minus the quotes

,

Hello,

I think youll definitely like aspbanner. It's very easy to setup and use and it should work great with your portal. 

Youll have banners rotating in no time. All you have to do is add banner calling code in your pages where you want the banners to show. There are enough methods that you will definitely find a few that work well for you. 

BTW, there are actually 7 methods now as we have a new one.
Information about it can be found in our ASPBanner support forums

cwilliams38455.9049884259,

I did everything mentioned here but it do not work ;(

,

If you have found out that parent paths are disabled on the web server you can still use the application.

Before you continue.

If it is your server consider enabling parent paths to solve the problem.

If it is not your server consider asking them to enable parent paths for your web site to solve the problem.

If that is not possible please download this zip file.
2005-02-20_150703_aspprotect_v7.x_alternate_include_file_pat hs.zip

This zip file contains 3 sets of alternate files depending on your situation. You simply replace your existing aspprotect v7.x files with these new ones.

The zip file contains the following folders and files.



Below is the contents of the readme.txt file which explains everything.

The following folders each have a version of all the files in the ASPProtect system that might need to be edited in case you need to change the paths for the server side include files. There are 3 different scenarios.


(parent paths enabled) - This is the way the application comes.
The files in this folder have FILE server side includes containing "../" information. While these includes will work when the applicaion in is any location of a website they will not work if parent paths are disabled on the web server. Generally you will want to use these on your xp development machine. You can of course use them on your real server if parent paths are enabled. Parent Paths are now disabled on II6 by default and some hosting company will not enable them.


(domain root)
The files in this folder have VIRTUAL server side includes in them.
These includes only work when the applicaion is installed in the root of your web domain. For example if your domain was called "www.somedomain.com" the following aspprotect files and folders would end up like this
"http://www.somedomain.com/check_user_inc.asp"
"http://www.somedomain.com/password_admin"
"http://www.somedomain.com/users"


(domain directory)
The files in this folder have VIRTUAL server side includes in them.
These includes only work when the applicaion is installed in a directory called "aspprotect" in the root of your web domain. For example if your domain was called "www.somedomain.com" the
following aspprotect files and folders would end up like this
"http://www.somedomain.com/aspprotect/check_user_inc.asp"
"http://www.somedomain.com/aspprotect/password_admin"
"http://www.somedomain.com/aspprotect/users"

You can change the name of the "aspprotect" directory but you will will have to edit the includes in the files.


Lastly, if you are on a local machine and insist on using the VIRTUAL INCLUDES you would also use the (domain directory files) even though you dont have a domain on your local machine most likely
For example if your site was installed like so.
"http://localhost/aspprotect/check_user_inc.asp"
"http://localhost/aspprotect/password_admin"
"http://localhost/aspprotect/users"

Now that I really think about it.. instead of logging that info to a text file and worrying about folder permissions you could probably just save the post info into an application variable during the paypal ipn.asp post like so

For Each Item In Request.Form
formdata = formdata & vbCrLf & Item & "=" & Request.Form(Item) & vbCrLf
Next

Application("PayPalPost") = formdata & " - " & NOW



then anytime you wanted to see if that info was there or when it happened you could make a simple asp page in your site to display the results like so

<%
Response.Write "(" & Application("PayPalPost") & ")"
%>

cwilliams38421.6747453704, we ended up resolving it...

the physical path being used was invalid,

ok,

IE and firefox do some things differently.

It could very well have to do with MIME types set on the server for your website. pdf probably isnt set as a mime type which can cause issues with file streaming situations.

Mime types are either set in the IIS console for your web site under the http headers tab or you can try setting the content-type header to 'application/pdf' right on the asp page the does the streaming

see this article which shows how to do that
http://psacake.com/web/gj.asp

'Specify a MIME type such as "text/html", "image/gif" or "application/pdf"
Response.contenttype = "application/pdf"
'Useful in cases for unknown file types

You would want to put the code that sets the contentype as close to the top of the asp page doing the streaming as possible.

,

Well I have the web hosting tech looking into the memory issues at this point.  Unfortunately I don't have another machine to be able to run the asp on that would run it correctly so that I can just publish it over.

,

Yeah sorry you are right. It works for me
