Hosting ASP .NET Applications On A Windows Media Server...

P: n/a
I looked for a more appropriate newsgroup for this question but I didn't see
much of anything (something more specific to Windows Media Services).

I have a server with Windows Media Services. When I try to establish an ASP
..NET application and open a page in this application, an attempt is made to
open the page using Media Player (I am guessing that the server thinks the
page should be served as a streaming media clip). Is there a way to make
this server host both streaming media content and ASP .NET content at the
same time?

If specific information is required to troubleshoot this problem, please let
me know. I am not sure what information to provide as I did not set this
server up (not to mention that I am a novice when it comes to server
administration).

Thank you,

Jason Richmeier

Hi Jason,

From your description, you have a windows server machine which has media
service installed, currently you want to host ASP.NET pages on that server,
however, you found the media player's browser always open the asp.net pages
as media stream, correct?

As for this issue, I'd like to confirm the environment settings of your
media service server. Are you using .net framework/ASP.NET 1.1 or 2.0?
Also, what's the configuration for the virtual directory(which host the
media service and ASP.NET pages) in IIS?

Generally, in order to host ASP.NET web application, we need to make sure
the certain IIS site has been registered the certain ASP.NET service
extensions(done at .net framework installation time) or use the
aspnet_regiis tool:

#ASP.NET IIS Registration Tool (Aspnet_regiis.exe)
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/k6h9cz8h.aspx

If you've installed both ASP.NET 1.1 and ASP.NET 2.0, make sure you've
configured the virtual directory to use the correct version.

After the configuration is ok, you need to add a test asp.net (aspx) page
in the virtual directory and try visiting it through normal webbrowser(like
IE) to see whether you can correctly view it in browser. If that failed or
report any exception, you need to focus on troubleshooting the ASP.NET
processing in that virtual directory. If this worked, you can continue to
try visiting this page in media player's explorer to see whether it display
correctly.

BTW, as for such ASP.NET application hosting issue, you can post in the
following ASP.NET specific newsgroups:

microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.aspnet

Both IIS and WMS will attempt to listen on port 80 which can cause problems.

Thanks for Mike's input,

Hi Jason,

I think you can also have a look at the article Mike mentioned if you're
suffering the service endpoint confliction problem between media service
and the IIS server.

Please feel free to post here if you need any further assistance.
