yeah.. I cant say for sure.. as I have never really tried to get it working in xp pro.

Last time I actually used cdonts locally was on a 2000 box

I would do a google search on xp pro, smtp service, and cdonts and let us know what you find out.

All of our apps can use free 3rd part emailing components as well so maybe try some of those. Course you need a valid email server to connect to.

Chris-
 
That appears to have fixed it!!! Thanks alot for your patience, I will never question your brilliance (or customer service) again! Where do I write you a smashing review?
Thanks!

Will do! , to finalize this thread.... turns out I was correct and this person was not unzipping the zip file correctly. ,

Just installed software,  when I attempt to log on I get the following error (actually this is after I moved some of the include files to user).

Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0131'

Disallowed Parent Path

/gallery_admin/default.asp, line 25

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

 

What do I need to do to fix?

 

thanks.

,

Perfect. Thanks buddy :)

eeye38433.0629976852, The folder named Pictures permissions are set to your specs.  It has jpg's that were uploaded per the aspphotogal instructions.  But, the error message still appears and I am unable to access using aspphotogal.,

far as I can tell it does... that session abandon thing called in the logoff page should be enough to cover everything

once thing to be careful about

If you log in.. then log off... then go back to a page and do a refresh... you  may in fact be reposting the username and password from before.. thus logging yourself right back in

Perhaps not.. all depends on what your doing... but it is something to be careful of when testing 

cwilliams38341.7390509259,

It's not working because i guess im copying the viewstate also...and it comes up

Validation of viewstate MAC failed. If this application is hosted by a Web Farm or cluster, ensure that <machineKey> configuration specifies the same validationKey and validation algorithm. AutoGenerate cannot be used in a cluster.

,

That carrot doesn't really exist in the file, so I'm not sure.

I did download and place the ASPTEST file in www.drsweisberg.com/asptest and when I try to load the 2 pages it fails to load.  I have another site on the same server and I uploaded the same exact set of files and the asp pages load.  www.klarman.com/asptest

http://www.drsweisberg.com/asptest/server_info.asp

http://www.klarman.com/asptest/server_info.asp

This is how I set the connection:

ConnectionString = "DBQ=D:\clients\rklarman\klarman\asptest\_database\asptest.m db;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=Admin;Password=temp"

ConnectionString = "DBQ=D:\clients\rklarman\drsweisberg\asptest\_database\aspte st.mdb;Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};UID=Admin;Password=temp"

,

I don't believe that the iframe method is supported in a .NET (aspx) implementation, is it?

If you bought ASPBanner Unlimited Version 7.3 Before August/01/2004 this file needs to be updated.

It fixes a bug where CODE type banners do not work correctly with a weight higher than 1.

Basically, blank banners will rotate and you will see nothing sometimes.

Copy this file into your ASPBanner folder over the existing file of the same name.

cwilliams38209.5383680556,

no, that only applies to random pictures and stats..

 

The issues you are talking about usually relate to issues created by switching back and forth between a local install and a live server install and not being careful about changing the paths in the settings depending on where you are running it from.

For example.. it trying to use a url at the server level that is only valid when you are running it locally

cwilliams38394.7554976852,

After taking another look at this and trying your suggestions without success, it appears that in Windows 2003 server it is nearly impossible to remove the READ ONLY attribute from the _database folder.  I'm wonder if this could the cause?

Thanks 

, I really need more information..

SQL or Access database ?
If Access are you using the newest version of the .mdb file

Is this a new item ?

Show me your connection string ?

perhaps the url to the site as well so I can look around?

things like that that will help me troubleshoot.

If any info is sensative send me a PM..

, Please forgive my question in advance, I'm sure I've overlooked the answer somewhere obvious. I'm sorry!

I'm wondering if it is possible to customize the appearance of the banner stats login page or the admin pages.  I'd really like the banner stats pages to look more like my own site or at least have my logo on there or something like that so that my advertisers can see that it is my site when checking their stats.  However, I want to do this without violating copyright, etc.

Can someone point me in the right direction or shut down my hope?

Thanks!

Laura
, Oh, I just remembered something..
It's been a while since I did this... :)

Nevermind what I said above as that is a different sort of "debug"


When you want to debug like your talking about find this section in the "web.config"

<compilation defaultLanguage="vb" debug="false" />

change it to this

<compilation defaultLanguage="vb" debug="true" />

When you run the code in a production environment change it back though

Our knowledge base which is hosted at a remote location is protected by ASPProtect Full Version 6. I would like to allow our employee to access the knowledge base from within our internal network unchallenged. Is there a way which I can modify the code "check_user_inc.asp" to allow any one coming from say 10.1.X.X to access the site unchallenged?

Thanks,

Mo

, I am trying to import a database into my list of registered users.  When I go the import_export_manager.asp page most of the content is missing.  All that appears is the first 2 lines of text and a box.  The rest of the page is blank.  I have tried this under 5 different browsers on 3 different machines and on 2 operating systems.  I also ftp'd the original .asp file with no success. Any clues? , Then you should have current enough code.

If you PM me the encryption key you are using and the plain text password for this user I can see if I can reproduce the error and come up with a fix.

I believe you found one of the rare examples where the encryption creates a strange character that messes up things. Sometimes those characters are not even visable.

Changing the password should solve the problem in the meantime.,

Can we get access to the source project files for ASPProtect.net since we'd like to put in some of our own branding on the pages and not everything can be done in HTML.

Thanks

, Best setup I recomend is just setting up a rig and making a workgroup. No real reason for a production machine to have any access to internal security when you think about it.

classic asp should be pretty easy to move, just set up new webs and dump the scripts in there. If you have 2 machines its always easier to look at the one while your building the other. Basically copy the setup and tada... the only thing you might need to remeber is components (if your using any) and thats usually not a very big deal either.

Point sort of being at some point your going to have to change that thing around and while its no fun you have to imagine now is a better time to bite the bullet and get it set up the right way. Your alternative is to mess around for hours and hours praying that you change domain wide security to the point that running NET apps on that domain controller works. Personally I wouldnt sleep well knowing I had just messed around so bad with the OS that I had no clue what bugs and security holes I might have accidently opened in the process. I wont even get into the possible things that might stop working on the rest of the domain if you fiddle with accounts like "Network Service"

Oh and if thats not enough reason to make you think about it, consider how hard it will be to try and rember what you did at 2AM 6 months from now if that machine takes a dive or some critical update undoes what you changed.

I feel for you though, trust me we have all been down that road once or twice. Get some sleep and in the AM the task at hand wont seem nearly as bad. You live and you learn, and you will definatly be WAY better off making things right sooner than later

2004-08-19_122127_ASPBanner_V7.3_code_banner_encode_decode_m od.zip

This is an Expirmental MOD for ASPBanner Version 7.3 Only
Do not use it on other versions....

It encodes CODE Banner information before saving it into the application variables that handle banner rotation. It then decodes that information before displaying them on your web pages.

The reason for this is SOME very complex javascript does not always save correctly into the application variables that rotate banners (even when not using the JavaScript Method to display the banners)

This way the javascript or whatever you entered comes out on your web page exactly as you entered it and runs correctly.. but there is little more processing going on to handle the encoding and decoding. But its probably nothing to worry about and won't effect performance at all.

Unless your having a problem don't use this mod. It is not officially supported in any way.

-- DIRECTIONS --

( COPY THESE FILES INTO YOUR ASPBANNER DIRECTORY AND BACK UP ALL THE FILES THAT YOU WILL BE REPLACING ))
(( SO YOU CAN REVERT BACK IF THERE IS TROUBLE ))


If you are wondering if the "appinfo_inc.asp" included has the weight banner bug fix applied to it already. That is a bug mentioned in our forums

ALSO:

(( YOU CAN NOT USE THE INCLUDE METHODS OF CALLING BANNERS WITH THIS CODE ))

(( YOU CAN NOT USE THE JAVASCRIPT METHOD OF CALLING BANNERS WITH THIS CODE ))

(( USE ONE OF THE OTHER METHODS ))

cwilliams38229.4189930556, thats actually just the xml parser component barfing out on you.. it can't handle the load of being called so much on that server

you might want to try some of the other methods of calling banners,

Chris:

I just got done trying it myself and it worked great for me too. I was aware of the security issue, but I'd already planned on using SSL for this particular call, as well as for the secured pages accessed through the normal process, so the bad guys will be kept at bay.

Thanks for the help.

, I really need more detailed information to say anything about it.

I would try different methods of calling banners as well to see if that helps.,

cwilliams38413.5933680556, do you have "use picture uploading" checked in the settings ?
that is important..

have proper permissions been set on the picture folder ?

are the paths set correctly for the picture folder ?,

The "forgot your password" feature is not sending passwords to users when they put in their emails.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

,

Is this the full version 7.
Did you make any changes to the code ?
Is the User_ID field still an autonumber field in the Access database ?

I do not see how this could happen unless somehow the autonumber field setting for User_ID was changed in the database?

,

probably.. better than what we are accomplishing here LOL

or if you like send me the import file and your encrpytion key and I will try it out here and see what happens

either way PM me any sensitive info if any

 

,

This issue came up once before and when I investigated I could find no error in the html that aspprotect generates and those files do exist where they are supposed to. We concluded it was a parsing error from the log file system.

There just really isn't anything I can do about it. I spent a week trying to figure it out. It is just the log parser screwing up under certain circumstances where there is no reason anything is wrong. They have trouble dealing with some of the complex URL/querystrings that the ASPProtect admin area uses. They think there is a 404 eror when there isn't... etc etc

, Chris, and all who read this post.

Don't run away!
I believe that perhaps I gave Chris good cause for this post to be created. But dont fear.

When it comes to most languages I am a newbie, let alone ASP.NET. I did not choose to have an application for my site to be built in ASP.NET. However it was and I had paid for that program and it needed protecting!

Now I did have a few problems, however NONE were with ASPProtect.NET. It is brilliant. NONE were with Chris and the support he provides. I believe he must work 24/7 judging by the speed of replies and the timezone differences.

In the end all the problems were down to MY typos and a web host who insisted that any problem was a conflict and not their server set-up.(which it was!)

Having eliminated the typo and changed web provider to a less arrogant company. ASPProtect.NET installed and ran out of the box. Truely impressive.

As a newbie it is not something I would like to do again. But with help from Chris and from a friend with ASP.NET knowledge any issues were very quickly resolved.

An A+ recommendation for CJWSoft. I love it!
,

Chris,

Another question on V7.  I set up all the paths as required for the extras like user pics and exports on my site.  They were working fine.  I created an export, then as you recommend, deleted the file on the site to ensure it doesn't get in the wrong hands.  I did this a few times to test it after a number of people logged in.

About 2 days later, I went to do it again and the system came back with an error saying the directory didn't exist.  I know it did because I created it and it worked fine.  I then created the directory again thinking I was losing it.

Then today, I went to do another export and the directory is gone again!  Can you help me understand why this might be happening?  I am the only one with FTP access to the site so there is no way that it could be someone else doing it.  The error I get is:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a004c'

Path not found

/password_admin/export.asp, line 78

 

Thanks,
Dave

,

I have noticed that during the file import, that some of the pictures get messed up.  I can import aroun 150 pictures into different albums, say 3 albums with 50 each.

I have noticed however that some of the get messed up.  What is happening is...the thumbnail will be correct, but after you click it the picture that shows up is one form a different album.

Any cure for this?

,

Hello -

Believe it or not I finally can access the photogallery. You were right Chris regarding the unzipping of the files.

Now onto the next challenge! I have set up three categories and proceeded to create a test album. I uploaded a couple of pictures (yeah that worked!!!) but the album does not show up on the default.asp page under the category.

Please advise -
Rhona (rookie)

Thanks for the info.  We'll do as you suggest.

(Capcha Security Image Mod)

This mod will add a Capcha Security Image to the registration signup form.



Instructions:

Download the latest version of the ASP Security Image Generator from this site. http://www.tipstricks.org/

Unzip that download and copy "aspcaptcha.asp" and "aspcaptcha_distort.asp" into the aspprotect "users" folder.

Now edit "users/register.asp" with a text editor and add the code shown below in blue. The code to add goes near the bottom of the form right above the submit button. Just add the blue code. The code around it is shown to help you find the area of code where it gets placed.


    <tr>
      <td valign="top" align="right"><font face="Arial" size="2"><strong>
  Newsletter</strong></font></td> ; ; ; ; ; ; ;
      <td valign="top">
  <input type="checkbox" name="Newsletter" value="True" checked>
  <font face="Arial" size="1">Do you want to be subscribed to the
  newsletter ?</font></td>
    </tr>

    <tr>
      <td valign="top" align="right"></td>
      <td valign="top">&nbsp;<img src="aspcaptcha.asp" alt="" width="86" height="21" />
   <font face="Arial" size="2" color="#000000">Type the characters shown in image for verification.</font><br>
   <input name="strCAPTCHA" type="text" id="strCAPTCHA" maxlength="8" /></td>
    </tr>

    <tr>
      <td colspan="2" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
        <p align="center"><input type="submit" value="Register"></p>
      </td>
    </tr>


ok, now edit "users/add_new_account.asp" with a text editor and add the code shown below in blue. Just add the blue code. The code around it is shown to help you find the area of code where it gets placed.

If User_Custom6_Used = True Then
 If User_Custom6_Required = True Then
  If  Custom6 = "" Then
   ErrorMessage = ErrorMessage & Server.URLEncode("You need to enter a " & User_Custom6_Name &".\n\n")
  End IF
 End If
End If
 
 strCAPTCHA = Trim(Request.Form("strCAPTCHA"))
 if strCAPTCHA = Trim(Session("CAPTCHA_" & Session.SessionID)) then
 else
  ErrorMessage = ErrorMessage & Server.URLEncode("You did not type in the verification info correctly.\n\n")
 End If 

 
If ErrorMessage <> "" Then
 Response.Redirect "register.asp?" & Request.Form & "&ErrorMessage=" & ErrorMessage
 Response.End
End If

Your done. You just added a Capcha Security Image to your signup form. If you would like a more distorted image that is more difficult for an automated program to figure out change the image tag to call the "aspcaptcha_distort.asp" page instead. It will look more like this.

,

Chris,

When I set up a test user name it does accept name and passwords and the passwords are encrypted, no problem there.

All I want to do is to restrict access to the protected pages to the members only. Only those users will be accepted and allowed to view.

I have entered all of thier names, address, phone number, email and company in the database, which is still named ASPProtect_access2002.mdb and in the fpdb directory of wwwroot. To get it there I uploaded via FTP.  I hope I expained the situation well enough.

,

I did a google search and it turns out that error very well might have to do with ASP trying to send an email and that process failing.

That tells me your emailing from the application is not working so it is probably not something you edited incorrectly.

see this article...

80040211
http://www.aspfaq.com/show.asp?id=2026

Emailing was working as when I did your installation (I think I did it months ago, didn't I) so it must be some incorrect changes to your email settings in the admin settings screen. Try sending an individual email to a user from the admin users screen and see if it works. My guess is you will get the same error and means your email sending options are no longer correct or valid.

If that is the case I would ask you if you changed them or possibly something changed as far as your email setup goes. Passwords ? EMail Server .. etc etc etc
