IIS5 not showing ASP files, shows others

Hello,

Annoying problem on a server with IIS 5. [We have other
IIS 5 that show asp files just fine. I'm at a loss. ]

I can open htm, html, gif, jpg, all files except asp
files. The message when opening an asp file is:

"The page cannot be found...
blah blah blah
HTTP 404 - File not found"

I've looked everywhere. Permissions are okay with IUSR
and security since we can browse other files. The asp
files in question are NOT marked Hidden...

What can I do to make it render the asp files? Ideas?

Thank you,
Sharon

Turn off "show friendly HTTP errors" in Tools / Internet Options / Advanced,
reload the page, and tell us what the *real* error message is.

This does not exactly match your description of your problem, but it's worth
a try.

I had this problem one of my systems that has only yesterday, had XP
installed on it........just trying to remember how I fixed it....

AH!.......remembered.....

I enabled Scripts and Executables (Low IIS Process since it's not going to
be connected to the net.....ever) and enabled the server extensions for the
domain itself.

Norton or other script blocking software, URLScan/IIS Lockdown without
ASP allowed, no script access on folder, many reasons possible.

Jeff, that was it! URLScan/IIS Lockdown was set to not allow ASP.
Whew!

Thanks to everyone for all your input! I found the referenced articles
very useful and went through all of them trying everything...

Problem resolved with the lockdown tool....
