HTTP 404 file not found error

P: n/a

Hi,

I am having a strange problem. I have certain ASP pages that are wel
tested and working in many places. But there is one server (window
2000) on which some of the asp pages do not work. I get a HTTP 404 fil
not found error. I checked more than a few times and made sure the file
are there on the server where the IIS application is looking at. Th
strange thing is, some of the ASP pages are working fine. Only thos
ASP pages whose name starting with 'ETC' is not working. If I chang
the name of the same ASP to some thing other than "ETC" it works fine.

Do you think there is some software on the sever that tells IIS t
block requests coming from any ASP pages starting with the name 'ETC'
Is there any way I can find out what is going on.

Any input is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
G

If there has been a lot of renaming and modifying activity in the source
files, I would try restarting IIS to make sure that it is not caching old
pages.

First try restarting IIS and/or the server.

Are there any ISAPI filters installed on the server that might be affecting
it?

Also, check the IIS web logs & confirm that you're actually getting a 404 &
that the ASP pages aren't redirecting you to a different page that's
returning the 404.
