European IIS 7 Hosting - Amsterdam :: 401.1 error with windows authentication on IIS7 on Windows 7

clock February 15, 2012 07:52 by author Scott

I wanted to test Windows 7, a website with Windows Authentication.

Normally it is sufficient, Windows Authentication in "Programs and Features" / "Windows Features" to activate



and then in the IIS Manager to enable:



When you call the page, however, to my astonishment, I received a popup to enter the user data:



After I entered the credentials three times, I received the following error:



The reason for this is that I've given the site its own host header.

Produces the result that the loopback check, which was introduced with Windows XP SP2 (and apparently also in Windows 7 is used), fails, and the above error message with the Error Code 0xc000006d.

The behavior and the remedy is in
KB896861 described.



European IIS 7 Hosting - Amsterdam :: How to Connect Site via IIS Manager

clock February 14, 2012 05:50 by author Scott

I was about to blog how we can redirect domain.com to www.domain.com (redirecting can improve SEO ranking, tune to next post for more detail) in IIS 7. But before that I thought let me first blog how to connect with remote website through IIS manager. Before proceeding with this tutorial we need to download IIS Manager for Remote Administration and of course windows hosting account which allow remote IIS management. After installing IIS Manager for Remote Administration open IIS Manager by typing inetmgr in Run window. In connection pane of IIS manager click on Create New Connection button. There are three different options. Click on Connect to a Site



It will open new dialog box for connecting to remote website. In that dialog box enter server name and website name (which can be obtained from hosting control panel or contact hosting provider).



Clicking on next will ask for credentials for connecting to website.



After providing credentials when you click next, you might get server certificate alert depends on connecting server certificate. If you get one then click on connect if you trust connecting server.



On successful connection, it will ask for connection name. Provide connection name and click on finish button.



On connection, you might get following dialog asking to install server feature. This is the list of server feature which is not available on your local machine. If you want to manage / configure that feature through remote IIS then you must install it on your local machine.



After that you can see list of IIS feature available. Now you can configure it.



Done. Great job.
