IIS 8 Hosting - HostForLIFE.eu :: How to Config ASP.NET and IIS Request Length?

clock April 8, 2016 20:30 by author Anthony

In this post, i will show you how to configuring ASP.NET and IIS request length for post data. One of the most infuriating things about IIS configuration in general is how the Request length is configured in IIS and ASP.NET. There are several places that control how much content you can send to the server and over the years this setting has changed in a number of ways. The places where it's configured is not super obvious and they can be fluid because some of these features are optionally installed IIS features.

So here are the two main places where the request length is set in IIS and ASP.NET:

  • IIS Request Filtering
  • HttpRuntime maxRequestLength

Let's start with the IIS level setting, which is also a relatively new setting. It's based around the Request Filtering module in IIS which is an optional IIS component, but that is a required component if you have ASP.NET installed on your server (at least in the latest versions). If you have ASP.NET enabled in IIS the Request Filtering module is also enabled and the following settings apply.

If you don't use ASP.NET you can still install Request Filtering, but it's an optional component. So if you only use ISAPI or CGI scripts and no ASP.NET content Request Filtering may not be enabled in which case the following settings cannot be set and aren't required. Since most people do run ASP.NET at least for some sites, for all intents and purposes we can assume that the Request Filtering module is installed on IIS.

So to configure the posted content size you can use the following web.config based configuration settings:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
    <system.webServer>
     <security>
      <requestFiltering>
        <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="500000000"  />
      </requestFiltering>
    </security> 
   </system.webServer>
</configuration>

The maxAllowedContentLength determines the size of the POST buffer allowed in bytes. Above I've set the value to 500megs.

Or you can do the same thing in the IIS Management console using Request Filtering option in the IIS options:

As is usually the case you can apply the filtering at all levels of the IIS hierarchy – Machine, Site and Virtual/Application. Using web.config as shown above sets the settings at the Application level.

Because these are IIS settings, the value controls the IIS upload settings so they are applied against any and all requests that are fired against IIS, including ASP.NET, ASP, ISAPI extensions, CGI/FASTCGI executables, IISNodeJs requests and so on.

ASP.NET traditionally has had its own httpRuntime element in the <system.web> section that control ASP.NET runtime settings one of which is the maxRequestLength. This setting controls the ASP.NET pipeline's acceptance of file uploads and it needs to be configured in addition to the Request Filtering settings described above.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
  <system.web>
    <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="500000000" executionTimeout="120" />
  </system.web>
</configuration>

You can also use the IIS Management Console and the Configuration Manager option, to view all of the options on the httpRuntime element:

What's interesting is that the settings you see here widely mirror the settings in the Request Filtering section, and they are not inherited. It's your responsibility to make sure the settings are set correctly in both places. I recommend that you take a minute and go through the values you care about and set them correctly in both places.

The above describes ASP.NET settings. If you're using another framework, like WCF you may end up with yet another different set of settings on the WCF bindings and Endpoints. Just be aware of the framework you're using and that it too might have specific filters to restrict request size.

European IIS 8 Hosting - UK :: Tips to Secure Your IIS Installation

clock November 18, 2015 20:55 by author Scott

You have just finished installing IIS on your Windows OS. You’re probably thinking that you can delve into the web development world and forget all about the underlying web server. After all, IIS is a Microsoft product so it should install with the right default configuration settings, right? That is far from true with IIS.

In this article, I will provide 8 tips that you can use to secure your IIS installation.

Move the Inetpub folder to a different drive

The Inetpub folder is the default location for your web content, IIS logs and so on. By default IIS 7 and upwards install the Inetpub folder in the system drive. It’s good practice to move the Inetpub folder to a different partition so that the web content is separate from the operating system. This folder can be moved after IIS installation is completed.

Install the appropriate IIS modules

IIS includes more than 30 modules  – you should only install the ones which are needed by your web applications. Disable any modules that are not required, to minimize the capacity of potential attacks. Periodically review the modules that are installed and enabled and remove any that are no longer required. You can use IIS Manager to list all the modules that are enabled.

  • Open IIS Manager
  • Select the name of the machine to view the modules for the whole machine, or change to the specific web site to view the modules enabled for the selected site
  • Double click on ‘Modules’
  • To disable a module, click on the module from the list and select ‘Remove’ from the Actions pane
  • Confirm the removal by pressing Yes

Disable the OPTIONS method

The OPTIONS method provides a list of methods that are supported by the web server. Although this might seem beneficial, it also provides useful information to an attacker. This will provide information to an attacker at the reconnaissance stage of this attack. Therefore it’s recommended to disable the OPTIONS method completely. This can be done by denying the OPTIONS verb from the HTTP Verb request filtering rules in IIS.

  • Open IIS Manager
  • Select the name of the machine to configure this globally (or change to the specific web site for which you need to configure this)
  • Double click on ‘Request Filtering’
  • Change to the HTTP Verbs tab
  • From the Actions pane, select ‘Deny Verb’
  • Insert ‘OPTIONS’ in the Verb, and press OK to save changes

Enable Dynamic IP Restrictions

The Dynamic IP Restrictions module helps blocks access to IP addresses that exceed a specified number of requests and thus helps prevent Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. This module will inspect the IP address of each request sent to the web server and will filter these requests in order to temporarily deny IP addresses that follow a particular attack pattern. The Dynamic IP Restrictions module can be configured to block IP addresses after a number of concurrent requests or by blocking IP addresses that perform a number of requests over a period of time. Depending on your IIS version you will need to enable either the ‘IP Security’ feature or the “IP and Domain Restrictions”  as explained in this Microsoft article.

This will include the ‘IP Address and Domain Restrictions module in the IIS Manager, from where dynamic IP restrictions can be set.

  • Open IIS Manager
  • Select the name of the machine to configure this globally (or change to the specific web site for which you need to configure this)
  • Double click on ‘IP Address and Domain Restrictions’
  • From the Actions pane, select ‘Edit Dynamic Restriction Settings’
  • Modify and set the dynamic IP restriction settings as needed and press OK to save changes

Enable and Configure Request Filtering Rules

It is also a good idea to restrict the types of HTTP requests that are processed by IIS. Setting up exclusions and rules can prevent potentially harmful requests from passing through to the server, since IIS can block these requests on the basis of the request filtering rules defined. For example, a rule can be set to filter traffic for SQL Injection attempts. Whilst SQL Injection vulnerabilities should be fixed at source, filtering for SQL Injection attacks is a useful mitigation. This can be set from the Rules tab found in the Request Filtering page in IIS Manager.

  • Open IIS Manager
  • Select the name of the machine to configure this globally (or change to the specific web site for which you need to configure this)
  • Double click on ‘Request Filtering’
  • Change to the Rules tab
  • From the Actions pane, select ‘Add Filtering Rule’Set the required rules, and press OK to save changes

The rule set in the below screenshot would instruct IIS to check for the provided strings in requests for .asp and .aspx pages. IIS will then block the request if any of these strings are found.

You can also filter requests that contain things like high-bit characters or double escape characters. This and other similar filtering options are explained at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831621.aspx

Enable logging

Configuring IIS logging will cause IIS to log various information from HTTP requests received by the server. This will come in handy and can give a better understanding of issues that might have occurred on your website when things go wrong. It’s the place where you will start the troubleshooting process in such situations.

The server’s logs can also be continuously or periodically monitored in order to review the server’s performance and provide optimizations if needed. This can be automated using various server monitoring tools. Make sure to keep a backup of the logs. Microsoft also provide Log Parser, which is a tool that can be used to query and retrieve specific data from IIS logs. Additionally, log consolidation tools prove useful for consolidating and archiving data from logs in a more meaningful way.

IIS logging can be enabled and configured from IIS Manager > select the machine name or the specific site you want to configure > Logging. Since these log files might grow quite large, it would be a good idea to start a new file periodically.

Use the Security Configuration Wizard (SCW) and the Security Compliance Manager (SCM)

Both of these Microsoft tools can be used to test your IIS security. The Security Configuration Wizard (SCW) runs different checks and provides advice and recommendations on how to boost your server’s security. The Security Compliance Manager (SCM) tool performs security tests on your server and compares server configurations to predefined templates as per industry best practices and security guide recommendations.

Updates

Finally, ensure that you keep up to date with the latest updates and security patches. It is interesting how often this basic security requirement is missed. The majority of hacks affecting the web server occur on unpatched servers. This just demonstrates how important it is to always keep your IIS web server up to date.

IIS 8.0 Hosting France - HostForLIFE.eu :: How to Configure DNS Record for Sub Domain

clock October 16, 2015 11:34 by author Rebecca

In this article, I will tell you how to configure DNS record for sub domain.

Step 1

Open your domain control panel then go to DNS manager.

Step 2

Add following A records for domain.com and www.domain.com which point to IIS server IP address:

domain.com  IN A XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
www.domain.com  IN A XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
service.domain.com IN A XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX

First two rows will ensure that whenever user browse domain.com or www.domain.com at that time it will be routed to IIS server and rest will be take care by IIS then it will serve public site. The third row in above is important for next step.

Step 3

Now add following wildcard CNAME record:

*.domain.com  IN CNAME service.domain.com

In above wildcard entry ensure that any sub domain request for domain.com will be routed to server which is pointed by service.domain.com.

In IIS setup, you have to edit website binding to include domain.com and www.domain.com as host header, by this way you can tell IIS that any request from domain.com and www.domain.com will be handled by this particular website. So, whenever user browse domain.com or www.domain.com it is serving public website without any problem.

While in case of sub domain it is showing error that “The connection was reset” this is because IIS does not found host header entry for requested domain in any websites. So, you need to add host header entry in service.domain.com website created in IIS setup because service.domain.com is actual website which is going to serve hosted service application when it is browse from sub domain. Use the following code to add host header entry programmatically in IIS:

private string GetWebSiteId(string serverName, string websiteName)

{

    string result = "-1";

 

    DirectoryEntry w3svc = new DirectoryEntry(string.Format("IIS://{0}/w3svc", serverName));

 

    foreach (DirectoryEntry site in w3svc.Children)

    {

        if (site.Properties["ServerComment"] != null)

        {

            if (site.Properties["ServerComment"].Value != null)

            {

                if (string.Compare(site.Properties["ServerComment"].Value.ToString(),

                                        websiteName, true) == 0)

                {

                    result = site.Name;

                    break;

                }

            }

        }

    }

 

    return result;

}

       

private void AddHostHeader(string hostHeader, string websiteID)

{

    DirectoryEntry site = new DirectoryEntry("IIS://localhost/w3svc/" + websiteID);

    PropertyValueCollection serverBindings = site.Properties["ServerBindings"];

 

    serverBindings.Add(hostHeader);

 

    Object[] newList = new Object[serverBindings.Count];

    serverBindings.CopyTo(newList, 0);

 

    site.Properties["ServerBindings"].Value = newList;

    site.CommitChanges();

}  

 

AddHostHeader("127.0.0.1:80:user1.domain.com", GetWebSiteId("localhost", "service.domain.com"));

IIS 8.0 Hosting Ukraine - HostForLIFE.eu :: How to Configure ASP.NET Application on IIS

clock October 13, 2015 12:46 by author Rebecca

In this article, I'm going to explain how to set Windows Authentication to configure ASP.NET application in IIS. To make Windows authorize application you need to make changes in web.config as well as IIS manager.

Configuring Windows Authentication

<system.web>
   <authentication mode="Windows"/>
</system.web>

  1.     Start Internet Information Services (IIS).
  2.     Right-click your application’s virtual directory, and then click Properties.
  3.     Click the Directory Security tab.
  4.     Under Anonymous access and authentication control, click Edit.
  5.     Make sure the Anonymous access check box is not selected and that Integrated Windows authentication is the only selected check box.

If you will put Anonymous check box checked then it will not take windows login Id for the user. e.g. string windowsLogin = Page.User.Identity.Name;

Now, your application will work on windows authentication.

Here is the example code:

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   try
     {
       //Start:
        if (Session["EmployeeCode"] == null)
          {
             string windowsLogin = Page.User.Identity.Name;
             //Check user is valid or not from data base
            //I am putting simple condition by hard code value
            if (windowsLogin=='ValidUser')
                 {
                   Session["EmployeeCode"] = userId;
                 }
             else
                {
                  Session.Abandon();
                  Response.Redirect("InvalidUser.aspx", false);
                }
         //End
     }
    catch (Exception ex)
    {
       //Handel exception here
       Throw;
     }
}

It's done! You will get user from windows credential and check with existing user with database. If user is valid go ahead other wise navigate the user to Invalid page.

IIS 8.0 Hosting Spain - HostForLIFE.eu :: How to Use ASP.NET to Configure Costum Error Page in IIS

clock September 23, 2015 11:55 by author Rebecca

In this post, we're gonna explain how to use ASP.NET to configure custom error pages in IIS (Internet Information Server).  If we configure .NET Error Pages at the site level, ASP.NET stores the settings in the site’s web.config file. Since these settings are stored in the web.config file they are portable and can be easily moved to another server with the site’s content.

Step 1

Open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.  Select your website. Note: This could also be set at the server level and applied to all sites on the server. DoubleClick on the “.NET Error Pages” icon.

The .NET Error Pages features view will be displayed.

Step 2

Click the “Edit Feature Settings” link to enable this feature. The “Edit Error Page Settings” dialog box will appear.

In order to change the default mode, we must also specify a “Default Page”. This page will be used for all status codes that are  not otherwise defined. In this example, we are using a generic custom error page to trap all other errors. Once you enter the absolute URL for the default error page click OK.  It may be a good idea to use a static HTML page here just in case ASP.NET is not functioning properly.
By default server errors are shown when logged on locally to the IIS server and custom errors will only be used from remote sessions. You will want to change this to “On” if you are logged on locally to the IIS server. Otherwise, it will display detailed server errors, and not our custom error pages.

Step 3

Next we will explicitly define the 404 Error code. To get the browser to throw a 404 error, we pointed it to a file on the test site that does not exist. As you can see in the following image the friendly HTTP 404 error page was shown in IE9. A friendly HTTP 404 Error in IE9:

Step 4

On the .NET Error Pages Actions menu click the Add link.

Step 5

The “Add Custom Error Page” dialog will appear. This is where you define individual error pages per status code. For this example, you will add a custom page for the HTTP 404 Error.

Now that you have turned on the feature and added a custom page for the 404 status code, you can verify it is working. To verify visit a page that does not exist. In this example, you will use http://mysite.com/deletedfile.aspx. You can see in the following image that the custom error page was shown.

Step 6

As mentioned above this can also be managed from the site’s web.config file. Consider the following configuration section from our site’s web.config file.

<configuration>
  <system.web>
    <customErrors defaultRedirect=”http://mysite.com/errors/Error.aspx” mode=”RemoteOnly”>
       <error redirect=”http://mysite.com/errors/404.aspx” statusCode=”404″ />
    </customErrors>
  </system.web>
</configuration>

Everything you set in the GUI can easily be set directly in the web.config. This will also allow you to setup .NET Error Pages, if you are on a shared hosting Plan.

IIS 8.0 Hosting Italy - HostForLIFE.eu :: How to Reset/Restore IIS Settings to its Default in Windows?

clock September 17, 2015 11:54 by author Peter

IIS usually works well in Windows. but sometimes, we have a tendency to customize it to serve a required setting for a specific web project. If we install Xampp in Windows, default Xampp configuration forces IIS to decline its normal beaver or any custom configuration could be the cause.

So let’s see however we are able to reset IIS to its default settings. i'm working with Windows 8 and IIS 8.

Reset IIS

Go to 'Control Panel\Programs’.
Click 'Turn Windows feature on or off'.

Now, uncheck these two check boxes.
Click OK
And then, reboot/restart machine.

Again Go to 'Control Panel\Programs'.
Click 'Turn Windows feature on or off'.
Check these two check boxes.
Click ok.
Reboot/Restart machine.

Go to 'C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc'.
Open the 'hosts' file with Notepad.

Remove the Custom IP configurations, if any.
Save the edited hosts file ‘Ctrl+s’.

If Windows doesn’t let you save the 'hosts' file, copy the hosts file to another location.
Do edit and save.

Replace the 'hosts' file at 'C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc' with your edited 'hosts' file and we are ready to go.
"turn windows features on" An error has occurred. Not all of the features were successful.

IIS 8.0 Hosting Spain - HostForLIFE.eu :: Configuring Self-Signed Certificate

clock September 9, 2015 09:25 by author Rebecca

In this post, we're going to be very basic and straight forward few clicks on how to create an dconfigure self-signed certificate in IIS 7 or later.

Steps here mentioned are based on IIS 8, but it would be almost same on IIS 7 as well.

Step 1

To get started open IIS and select Server Certificates feature.

It will display list of all installed Server Certificate on web server.

Step 2

To create new self-signed certificate, click on Create Self-Signed Certificate in action pane.

It will open dialog box where you can specify friendly name for server certificate and certificate store for newly created SSL certificate.

Just specify name of the certificate, certificate store and click on OK. So, you are half way done, you have created Self-Signed Certificate with IIS, but still half way to go. After creating certificate, you need to bind it with websites then only we will be able to browse local IIS website with HTTPS.

Step 3

To bind websites with this certificate, select website in IIS and right click on it and select Edit Bindings.

It will open Site Bindings dialog where we can see binding information for selected websites. By default you will find one HTTP binding listed here.

Step 4

Click on Add button to Add new binding for selected website.

Step 5

Here, select binding type HTTPS and select newly created SSL certificate from drop down and click on OK. And congrats, you have added HTTPS binding to website which uses self-signed certificate in local IIS. To verify open and browse https://localhost.

Hope this quick post would be helpful!

IIS 8.0 Hosting Portugal - HostForLIFE.eu :: How to Use IIS URL Rewrite Module to Set Preferred Domain

clock September 2, 2015 06:22 by author Rebecca

In this post, we will learn how you can use IIS URL Rewrite extensions to redirect domain.com to www.domain.com. IIS URL Rewrite extensions enables web administrator to enforce powerful rules to transform complex URLs into simple and consistent Web addresses. As well it also helps to produce user and search engine friendly URLs.

As you all know that by default, you can access website with or without WWW. For e.g. browsing hostforlife.eu and www.hsotforlife.eu will open same website. This means there are two different web addresses are available for one website and hence website’s SEO ranking will be distributed between these two addresses. To overcome these SEO ranking distribution, we can force all web traffic to redirect either domain.com or www.domain.com. Google web masters tool also allow web master to set preferred domain for indexing website URLs. So conclusion is that redirecting all web traffic to only one primary domain or canonical domain can improve SEO ranking. Just follow these steps with IIS.

Step 1

Connect to website through IIS manager and click on URL Rewrite icon.

Step 2

In Actions pane click on Add Rules.

Step 3

In Add Rules dialog box click you can find several predefined rule template. Click on canonical domain name template under search engine optimization section.

Step 4

It will open dialog box to select primary domain for website. Choose appropriate options.

Step 5

Press ok. You have done it. Now all your web traffic will be redirected to primary domain you have selected. And you can see added rewrite rule in list pane. But just using predefined rule template is not enough for web administrator. We should also dig into rule settings done by this rule template. For examine settings of created rule select rule in list pane and double click on it or click on Edit Rules link in Action Pane.

Step 6

It will open edit inbound rule window. Scroll down to bottom of window. There you will find Action sections. In action sections, there is one drop down named Action Type. Default value of Action Type is redirect. Expand Action Type drop down to see different actions available for this rule.

Step 7

And below action type drop down there is another drop down Redirect Type. Default value of this is Permanent (301). Expand drop down to see list of available other redirect type.

Setting redirection type Permanent (301) will cause to send HTTP 301 status code and then after it will redirect to primary domain. So search engine can index appropriate URLs.
