ERROR - There are too many people accessing the Web site at this time

P: n/a
PW

Hi,

I'm using WinXP-Pro, ASP classic, IIS 5.0.

I regularly get this error, but I know I am the only user accessing the
website at the time of the error.

I looked it up on the MS support webiste. Their recommendation is this ...

------------------
on Microsoft Windows XP Professional, disable HTTP keep-alives in the
properties of the Web site. When you do this, a limit of 10 concurrent
connections still exists, but IIS does not maintain connections for inactive
users.
(see full message text below)
-------------------

The problem is, I cant find "HTTP keep-alives" in order to disable them.

Can anyone help ? Do I need to go to IIS 5.1 ? Where can I download it
from ?

Thanks,
PW

SYMPTOMS
When you attempt to browse an Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0 Web
site that is running on Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional, the following
error message is displayed at the top of the browser:

The page cannot be displayed
There are too many people accessing the Web site at this time.
The following error message is also displayed further down in the browser:

HTTP 403.9 - Access Forbidden: Too many users are connected
Internet Information Services
CAUSE
The error messages occur when more than ten users are attempting to connect
to IIS 5.0. The version of IIS 5.0 that is included in Windows 2000
Professional is limited to ten connections.
RESOLUTION
If more than ten connections are needed, use the version of IIS 5.0 that is
included in Windows 2000 Server.

If you use IIS 5.0 on Windows 2000 Professional or IIS 5.1 on Microsoft
Windows XP Professional, disable HTTP keep-alives in the properties of the
Web site. When you do this, a limit of 10 concurrent connections still
exists, but IIS does not maintain connections for inactive users.
STATUS
This behavior is by design.

WinXP Pro already have IIS v5.1

Open the IIS Manager in your Admin Tools Folder.
Right-click on the "Default Web Site" and choose "Properties"
On the "Web Site" tab, uncheck "Keep-Alives" enabled.

Cheers

Ahhhhh, I was right-clicking on the actual website rather than the default
website. I've followed your instructions and then went through the normal
steps to cause the error ... and it all worked fine. Thank you so much,
this has plagued me for far too long.

Thanks,
