Granting write access for file system to aspnet on Windows 2003 Se

hi,

I have a ASP.NET / C# web based intranet application, i need to create excel
files on the server in the folder. I always get a access denied error from
the web application on the server. The server is a windows 2003 server with
ASP.NET 1.1, I tried the setting mentioned in the link
"http://www.asp.net/faq/AspNetAndIIS6.aspx", but it still doesn't seem to
work, any ideas or links would be of great help

Regards,
Prasad

Hi!

I had the same problem.

It seems that the solution to that problem is to give write permissions
on that folder not to the aspnet user but to the IIS_WPG. It is
something related with using the 2003 Server and the IIS6 (if you use
an older version of ISS you have to give to the aspnet user the
permissions).

Hope it helps :)

Hi Ruben,
I tried using this user and it did not work,

Also i found the following.
Credentials under which the ASP.NET application executing is :
NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE
Name of the logged on user name is : <MY NT USER>

Thanx for the help

Regards,
Prasad
