Default Web Adminstration Tool

I am developing a website on a shared remote server. I have dropped a Login Control onto a web form named Login.aspx but when I select the Adminsiter Website link I get an error saying that the tool can only be used on a local machine.

Do I have to develop the membership environment locally and then FTP it up to my remote serve?

Thank you

Hi,

As you'll find on Microsoft's MSDN site at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms178683(VS.80).aspx, they do confirm that the browser interface for the Web Site Administration Tool allows remote configuration for versions of IIS beginning with IIS 6.0 so it depends on which version of IIS your shared server is running. I have asked the book's authors for more information.

Hi,

Dave Sussman replies, "The Administer Website application only works on the local machine; this is deliberate to minimise security risks associated with administrative sections of websites. If you need to do things such as create users, modify roles, etc, then you will have to build this yourself and upload it to the server."
