Request.UserHos tAddress, Vista & IIS7

Hi,

Now that the VS.NET 2005 SP1 update patch is with us, I'm in the process of
moving my main development environment onto 64-bit Vista Business Edition -
so far, so good...

However, there is a bit of a gotcha with Request.UserHos tAddress...

Under IIS6 and earlier, that would return a standard xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx IP
address. However, Vista enables IP6 by default, which makes
Request.UserHos tAddress return an IP6 address e.g.
"fe80::2032:39a b:3f57:fffb%10"

Easy enough to disable IP6, of course, but does anyone know a way to return
an IP4 address from IIS7 without disabling IP6, or mucking about with
LMHOSTS...

Haven't been able to find a way so far...

This article shows you how to set Vista to prefer IPv4 to IPv6 when attempting connections:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/com...uy/cg1005.mspx

To selectively disable Pv6 components and configure behaviors for IPv6 in Windows Vista,
create and configure the following registry value (DWORD type):

HKEY_LOCAL_MACH INE\SYSTEM\Curr entControlSet\S ervices\tcpip6\ Parameters\Disa bledComponents

DisabledCompone nts is set to 0 by default.

The DisabledCompone nts registry value is a bit mask that controls the following series of flags,
starting with the low order bit (Bit 0):

Bit 0 Set to 1 to disable all IPv6 tunnel interfaces, including ISATAP, 6to4, and Teredo tunnels.
Default value is 0.

Bit 1 Set to 1 to disable all 6to4-based interfaces. Default value is 0.

Bit 2 Set to 1 to disable all ISATAP-based interfaces. Default value is 0.

Bit 3 Set to 1 to disable all Teredo-based interfaces. Default value is 0.

Bit 4 Set to 1 to disable IPv6 over all non-tunnel interfaces, including LAN interfaces and
Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP)-based interfaces. Default value is 0.

Bit 5 Set to 1 to modify the default prefix policy table to prefer IPv4 to IPv6 when
attempting connections. Default value is 0.

So, you'd set the first 4 bits to 0 and bit 5 to 1.

That will allow IPv6, but the system will prefer IPv4.

To only prefer IPv4 over IPv6 (what you want), set the value to 0x20
To disable IPv6 over all interfaces *and* prefer IPv4 to IPv6, set it to 0xFF

You must restart the computer for the changes to the DisabledCompone nts registry value to take
effect.

You're quite welcome, Mark.
It just so happened that I'd just looked up the very same issue for a client.

I think I've found a way to return the IP4 address even when IP6 is on...

Dns.GetHostAddr esses(Dns.GetHo stName()) returns an array if IP addresses for
the current host and, so far, the IP4 address always seems to be the fourth
element of the array i.e.

[0]: {fe80::288f:1d8 f:3f57:fffb%10}
[1]: {fe80::7133:861 5:3971:49d1%8}
[2]: {fe80::5efe:192 .168.0.4%13}
[3]: {192.168.0.4}
[4]: {2001:0:4136:e3 8e:288f:1d8f:3f 57:fffb}

Therefore:

using System.Net;
string strIP4Address =
Dns.GetHostAddr esses(Dns.GetHo stName())[3].ToString();

I need to do a bit more testing to see what that returns on XP / Win2k3s.

Also, it's almost certainly an extremely bad idea to rely on the numerical
position of the element within the array...

And here we go:

using System.Net;

public string GetIP4Address()
{
string strIP4Address = String.Empty;

foreach (IPAddress objIP in Dns.GetHostAddr esses(Dns.GetHo stName()))
{
if (objIP.AddressF amily.ToString( ) == "InterNetwo rk")
{
strIP4Address = objIP.ToString( );
break;
}
}
return strIP4Address;
}

Hi Have just installed IIS7 on Vista and am trying to access a .mdb file through ASP. Getting server error. I think the problem is in the file permission. Under XP Pro/IIS6 is used to have to set the .mdb file security via windows explorer to give IUSR_machinename full permissions on this file for anonymous web access. Cant seem to do this with Vista explorer - says object cannot be found.
