IIS 8.0 Hosting UK - HostForLIFE.eu :: Disable Client Certificate Revocation (CRL) Checking in IIS 8

clock December 17, 2014 05:20 by author Peter

At this post, I will explain you how to disable Client Certificate Revocation (CRL) Checking in IIS 8. The Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is an important because certificates are used in so many scenarios when testing Microsoft products and technologies. And one of the trickiest parts of PKI is availability of the Certificate Revocation List (CRL). That is because some solutions require a successful CRL check and some don’t. The problem is that Microsoft documentation doesn’t always make it clear which is the case for a particular scenario, so you end up having to guess whether it is required or not (or worse, going through the entire configuration process and finding that it doesn’t work).

When performing on a system with no internet access it's vital to confirm that CRL checking is disabled. If not disabled you'll always receive a 403.13 error once coming.

And here is the code to Show All Binding and Their Verify Client Certificate Revocation Setting:
netsh http show sslcert

Code for Delete SNI Binding:
netsh http delete sslcert hostnameport=www.yourwebsite.com:443

This is code for Add SNI Binding:
netsh http add sslcert hostnameport=www.yourwebsite.com:443 certhash=78dd6cc2bf5785a123654d1d789c530fcb5687c2 appid={3cc2a456-a78c-2cc9-bcc9-782bc83bb789} certstorename=My verifyclientcertrevocation=disable

Hope this tutorial works for you!



IIS 7.5 Hosting UK - HostForLIFE.eu :: How to Upload Large File on IIS ?

clock December 16, 2014 08:32 by author Peter

By default, IIS can not upload large file size to the web server. For IIS 6 and IIS 7, the default maximum file size for upload is 4 MB and 28.6 MB respectively. IIS 7 will throw a 404 error (HTTP Error 404.13 - CONTENT_LENGTH_TOO_LARGE) if user upload file larger than 30MB. In order to allow for larger file size uploads, a few server changes are required.  You have three steps to increase the file upload limit:

1. Modify the maxAllowedContentLength setting in the web.config
You could increase the max file size by modify the maxAllowedContentLength setting in the web.config file:
<system.webServer>
  <security>
    <requestFiltering>
      <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="2147483648" />
    </requestFiltering>
  </security>
</system.webServer>


With that maxAllowedContentLength, users can upload files that are 2 GB in size. This setting will work right away without restart IIS services.

2. Edit the request filtering feature settings and therefore the request limits using IIS manager

  • Open IIS Manager.
  • Choose the web site that you simply wish to configure.
  • Check that you're in features view per the button at the lowest of the manager.
  • Choose Requests Filtering and open it by double-clicking the icon. The Request Filtering pane displays.
  • From the Actions pane on the right hand side of the screen click Edit Feature Settings... link. The Edit Request Filtering Settings window displays.
  • In the Request Limits section, enter the appropriate maximum allowed content length (Bytes) then click the OK button.
  • Next, Restart IIS.

3. Manually edit the ApplicationHost.config file

  • Click start. In the start Search box, type notepad. Right-click notepad, and so click Run as administrator.
  • On the File menu, click Open. within the File name box, type %windir%\system32\inetsrv\config\applicationhost.config, and so open.
  • Within the ApplicationHost.config file, find the  node.
  • Take away the maxAllowedContentLength property. Or, add a value that matches the scale of the Content-Length header that the client sends as a part of the request. By default, the worth of the maxAllowedContentLength property is 30000000.
    For instance, modify the subsequent configuration information within the  section.

    <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength ="<length>" />

  • Finally, Save the ApplicationHost.config file.

IIS 8.0 Hosting Belgium - HostForLIFE.eu :: Got an Issue on PowerShell AppPool Assignment

clock December 10, 2014 07:13 by author Peter

The WebAdministration module has a Function called IIS :. It basically acts as a drive letter or an uri protocol. The extremely convenient and makes accessing appPool, site info, and ssl bindings simple. I recently noticed 2 issues with assigning values with the IIS : protocol as well as objects and that is works along with :

StartMode Can’t Be Set Directly
For a few cause, utilizing Set-ItemProperty to line the startMode value directly throws an error. However, in case you retrieve the appPool into your variable and established the value using an = operator, every thing works good.

# https://connect.microsoft.com/PowerShell/feedbackdetail/view/1023778/webadministration-apppool-startmode-cant-be-set-directly
ipmo webadministration 
New-WebAppPool "delete.me" 
Set-ItemProperty IIS:\AppPools\delete.me startMode "AlwaysRunning" # throws an error 
$a = Get-Item IIS:\AppPools\delete.me
$a.startMode = "AlwaysRunning"
Set-Item IIS:\AppPools\delete.me $a # works

Here is the error that gets thrown:
Set-ItemProperty : AlwaysRunning is not a valid value for Int32.
At C:\Issue-PowershellThrowsErrorOnAppPoolStartMode.ps1:6 char:1
+ Set-ItemProperty IIS:\AppPools\delete.me startMode "AlwaysRunning" # throws an e ...
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Set-ItemProperty], Exception
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId :
System.Exception,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.SetItemPropertyCommand


CPU’s resetLimit Can’t Immediately Use New-TimeSpan’s Result
I believe the example can show the trouble much better than I will describe it :
# https://connect.microsoft.com/PowerShell/feedbackdetail/view/1023785/webadministration-apppools-cpu-limit-interval-resetlimit-cant-be-set-directly
ipmo webadministration 
New-WebAppPool "delete.me" 
$a = Get-ItemProperty IIS:\AppPools\delete.me cpu
$a.resetInterval = New-TimeSpan -Minutes 4 # this will throw an error
Set-ItemProperty IIS:\AppPools\delete.me cpu $a 
$a = Get-ItemProperty IIS:\AppPools\delete.me cpu
$k = New-TimeSpan -Minutes 4 # this will work
$a.resetInterval = $k
Set-ItemProperty IIS:\AppPools\delete.me cpu $a

And Here is the error that gets thrown:
Set-ItemProperty : Specified cast is not valid.
At C:\Issue-PowershellThrowsErrorOnCpuLimitReset.ps1:8 char:1
+ Set-ItemProperty IIS:\AppPools\delete.me cpu $a
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Set-ItemProperty], InvalidCastException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.InvalidCastException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.SetItemPropertyCommand

The links on every section correspond with bug reports for the problems, thus hopefully they can get looked into.

IIS 8.0 Hosting UK - HostForLIFE.eu :: How To Eliminate Unnecessary HTTP Headers in IIS 7.5 or 8.0 ?

clock December 4, 2014 06:50 by author Peter

IIS loves to inform the world that the web site runs on IIS, it does so using the Server response header as shown beneath. During this article I’ll show you how you can rewrite and eliminate unwanted response headers in IIS, as a result of we don’t need to provide hackers a lot of info concerning our servers.

The response of a standard HTTP HEAD appearance such as:
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Length: 0
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
Vary: Accept-Encoding
Server: Microsoft-IIS/8.0
X-UA-Compatible: IE=Edge,chrome=1
Date: Thu, 04 Dec 2014 10:05:34 GMT
Connection: close

And right listed below IIS shows the version info by using the Server response header. As using the ETag header, you are able to rewrite and empty this Server response header along with an IIS URL Rewrite outboundRule:
<rewrite>           
  <outboundRules rewriteBeforeCache="true">
    <rule name="Remove Server header">
      <match serverVariable="RESPONSE_Server" pattern=".+" />
      <action type="Rewrite" value="" />
    </rule>
  </outboundRules>
</rewrite>

The outboundRule looks for Server inside the output response stream and rewrites the value along with nothing. The end result is an empty Server response header line:
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Length: 0
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
Vary: Accept-Encoding
Server:
X-UA-Compatible: IE=Edge,chrome=1
Date: Thu, 04 Dec 2014 10:06:08 GMT
Connection: close


Rewrite Server : Microsoft-IIS/8. 0 with your personal information
The enjoyable section of rewriting response headers is that you may show your own string, for instance giving in an value inside the Rewrite action, which message is displayed:
<action type="Rewrite" value="europeanwindowshosting" />

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Length: 0
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
Vary: Accept-Encoding
Server: Saotn Server Software systems, LTD.
X-UA-Compatible: IE=Edge,chrome=1
Date: Thu, 04 Dec 2014 11:19:16 GMT
Connection: close

Eliminate X-Powered-By header in IIS utilizing customHeaders
By default IIS tells the world it’s powered by ASP. NET, by putting an X-Powered-By header:
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Length: 0
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
Vary: Accept-Encoding
Server:
X-Powered-By: ASP.NET
X-UA-Compatible: IE=Edge,chrome=1
Date: Thu, 04 Dec 2014 10:07:37 GMT
Connection: close


This response header could be removed having a customHeaders setting in web. config, placed inside the node:
<httpProtocol>
  <customHeaders>
    <remove name="X-Powered-By" />
  </customHeaders>
</httpProtocol>


Currently the X-Powered-By header is removed from the response header output:
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Length: 0
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
Vary: Accept-Encoding
Server:
X-UA-Compatible: IE=Edge,chrome=1
Date: Thu, 04 Dec 2014 10:10:02 GMT
Connection: close

X-AspNet-Version HTTP header
The X-AspNet-Version HTTP Header broadcasts to the world what version of ASP.NET has been used. Add the listed content inside node with your application’s web. config file:
<httpRuntime enableVersionHeader="false" />

Eliminate HTTP headers in global.asax
ASP.NET programmers can also eliminate or change server HTTP response headers through a global.asax file With your global.asax.cs add this :
protected void Application_PreSendRequestHeaders()
{
  // Response.Headers.Remove("Server");
 Response.Headers.Set("Server","My httpd server");
  Response.Headers.Remove("X-AspNet-Version");
  Response.Headers.Remove("X-AspNetMvc-Version");
}



IIS 8 Hosting UK - HostForLIFE.eu :: How to use FTP User Isolation in IIS 8?

clock December 3, 2014 05:09 by author Peter

When IIS 7 was released the FTP service were totally redesigned from the bottom up along with security on your mind. This was a welcome change indeed from IIS 6. Along with supporting FTP more than SSL it introduced FTP User Isolation.

Multiple users on a similar FTP website could possibly be separated no matter that file path they had been becoming logged into without risk of somebody traversing up parent paths with other user folders.

The FTP Authorization guidelines cause it to be simple to determine multiple users or perhaps local groups to get access to the FTP server. The user isolation is achieved by making a virtual directory referred to as LocalUser then selecting User name directory (disable global virtual directories). The LocalUser virtual directory ought to purpose towards the FTP root directory then you build a separate virtual directory for every FTP user that points to their destination path.

Along with FTP User Isolation configured your users can never have the ability to transfer up as much as a parent path beyond their individual root directory. Even if a user were able to accurately guess the username and virtual path of another FTP account upon the server they won't have the ability to achieve it. Because of the confines from the isolation the FTP session can not notice anything upon the server. In the illustration down below I login along with local account ftpuser2 and plan to change the path to/ftpuser1 but that path doesn't exist and hence isn't accessible to my user.

Conclusion
IIS 8 on Windows Server 2012 provides the foremost secure FTP service of any IIS version to day. You've multiple layers of FTP security accessible by leveraging FTP Logon Attempt Restrictions, FTP Over SSL, and FTP User Isolation. Your FTP server will certainly be nicely protected using these built-in modules. Along with internet security there isn't any ‘patch’ for complacence. A lot of security is usually much better so implement it when it’s readily accessible for you.
