Request.BinaryRead :: Request Object Error 'ASP 0104 : 80004005'
Why does the error below occur whenever the statement Request.BinaryRead Request.TotalBytes) is executed for uploads larger than 100K? I thought the 100K limit applied only to Request.Form. This does not occur with smaller uploads. This is running on an IIS 6 server with full FP2002 extensions.

Error Request.BinaryRead
Sometimes when loading binary files with Request.BinaryRead IIS on the log gives me the following Error (I have analyzed IIS Log with Web Trend Analyzer and the error isn't frequent):

POST .../WZUpload.asp |59|ASP_0101_:_80004005|Unexpected_error...

I don't have information on the file inserted because it was inserted by other people (Web Candidates that inserts their curricula on our Web Site) I have tried with large files and I haven't reproduced the problem, i have tried with 0 bytes files and I haven't reproduced the problem, I have tried to insert into the upload file Low Value (Chr(0)) and I haven't reproduced the problem.... The instruction is so....

AllDataB = Request.BinaryRead(Request.TotalBytes)

What type of files can cause the crash of BinaryRead ?

Error On Request.BinaryRead
I have a VBscript that I use to upload files onto the server. The script works fine on IIS 5.0 but on IIS 6.0 on Windows 2003 I get an error when uploading certain files.
I believe its because the file is larger than what is normally uploaded. Average file size is 15KB this file is 490Kb. The error that I get is

Request object error 'ASP 0104 : 80004005' Operation not Allowed

The code on the line is biData = Request.BinaryRead(Request.TotalBytes) Also the totalbytes on the two systems are different. Any idea why this is happening. Is there any solution?

Creating Cookies In Global.asa Session_OnStart But Cannot Read Cookies On Subsequent Pages.
In my Session_OnStart in Global.asa, I am setting some cookies. One
of them, I set as follows:

dim UserID
UserID = Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER")
Response.Cookies("User")("ID") = UCASE(UserID)

When I immediately log the cookie value retrieved from
Request.Cookies("User")("ID") into the Windows Event Log, I get the
correct value. However, when I try to retrieve the cookie on the home
page of my application using the same code,

Request.Cookies("User")("ID"), it either cannot find the cookie or
cannot read the value. I am retrieving the cookie before all HTML
headers are written. It is my first statement on the page after
Option Explicit. I have even compared the session IDs. The SessionID
created in the Session_OnStart is the same value as the SessionID on
the home page.

I have read that the Session_OnStart only has access to the
Application, Session and Request objects. It does not explicitly say
that it does not have access to the Response object. Also, I was even
able to use Response.Write's in Global.asa to print out the values
although it looked like it had also stopped the session after I did
so. Cookies are definitely enabled on my machine. I have even tried
setting the session cookie's expiration to be persistent for a few
days to see if it was perhaps expiring before I was able to read it
but this did not work either.

Is there something preventing cookies to be created in Global.asa in
the Session_OnStart sub? Is the Response object not available???
Please let me know if anyone else has had this problem or solution.

I am creating a user tracking app that tracks a user one of two ways...

1)First Method is cookies
2)Second Method MS SQL DB

I first check if the users browser accepts cookies if not I go to the db. If the user accepts cookies then I check for a specific crumb if it does not have the value I am looking for I kill it and rewrite it. This is working fine (im in the middle of testing it). The problem is I decieded to test the script with NN7 and not turn cookies off but block cookies from my site and all fell apart. The condition that I have set (detect if cookies are enabled) does not stop the script from trying to set a Session Variable because the browser accepts cookies and to keep a long story short it goes into an infinite loop because the script is looking for a Session value and Its not being stopped becaues the script thinks its alright to write cookies! Is there a way to detect if a user has your sites cookies blocked? This is important because Server.CreateObject("MSWC.BrowserType") will return .Cookies = True and you will not know that your script is not executing properly because a user has your sites cookies blocked but excepts them elsewhere...

Hey i've spent the last few hours trying to work this problem out about cookies.

When a user logs in to the site the login.asp page checks the database to see the personal page that the user re directs to e.g if bob brown logged in he would be redirected to bob.brown.asp. This is stored in a field in the database table along with the username and password.

Getting Cookies
I'm trying to load up a page through my asp page and get the cookie from that page so that I can use it later on when it needs to have it to access other parts of the site.

Basically the asp page is going to act like a browser and store the cookie from the other site, then send that cookie back when the asp page goes back to the other site again.

The problem is, I can only seem to access my own cookie. I didn't run into this problem when I was doing a similar thing inside my .cs scripts that were run by the server, as I suppose they were not coming from the actual domain that my page is running on (and thus, wasn't getting everything trampled by local cookies).

Is this possible, or should I just give up on it now?

Using Cookies - Best Way To Do This?
im building a site for a few doctors surgeries. the user is able to see what appointments are available and then book that date/time. i have a table (in my db) of dates/times and a checkbox to say whether the time has been booked or not (and display only times that havnt been booked). i was going to have the user add the time to a "cart" and then check the "booked" checkbox in my db when theyve paid for that appointment. but if i have lots of people looking at the site at the same time, then they may be able to see times that are just about to be booked. i think a better way is to have the date/time stuffed into a cookie which expires after 5 minutes. so when a user adds a time to their "cart", it will say something like: "this time will expire in 5 minutes until you book it or re-add it to your cart". does that make sense?
how can i do this with server-cide cookies (im using jscript)? can anyone think of a better way to do this?

CDO + Cookies
I found that a number of my sites that send email using CDO failed withing the past 30 days. Consider the following. I know its not the best coding practice to open and close the connection so many times but Im curious why this would all of a sudden become an issue.

1. Have a few large sites essentially all variables such as SMTP server are set using cookies so I can deploy multiple sites quickly.

2. Within the site email appears to work correctly across all pages with 1 exception.

3. The exception is below, Im wondering if it has to do with cookies having to be retrieved multiple times from the client machine

--Call db run search loop data build array

--Based on data in array call another search alter and finalize array

--Do while <= uBound(myArray)

--Call Email sub (from,to,sub,body) ' Sub contains a request cookies for SMTP server.


Doesnt matter if its 2 or 50 emails always fails when using request.cookies to set the SMTP in the sub. Works fine if I hard code the IP. This same sub is used multiple times throughout the website and works fine with cookies.

Just curious why it needs might need to be hard coded in the loop. Has been running for about 6 months fine and have recently started noticing failures.

Cookies Problem (bug?)
Some of the visitors are complaining that they can't get in into the system
(using the login form of-course).

My login form includes e-mail and passwords fields, that I check within the
e-mail and passwords fields written in the database.
Then, if all is OK and the info the visitor enter is valid, I write it into
a cookie that next time the user get into my site, the system will recognize

As I mentioned before, the problem is that some of the visitors are able to
connect/logon, and some are not. They are getting the regular screen.
I checked with them and the cookies were enabled. I also tried to add a
"Response.Buffer=TRUE" code in the first line of code there --- > NOTHING.

Some people are able to connect just after they clear the cookies from their
computer. For some it doesn't help...

Querystrings And Cookies
I've noticed a strange problem with setting cookies in ASP when the
cookie name you're setting exists in the querystring. The company I
work for has many partner sites who link to our site like this: The partner.asp page then
sets a cookie called PartnerID containing the value from the

We have noticed, however, that if the partner calls the partner.asp
page and alters the capitalization of 'PartnerID' then another cookie
gets set which takes the capitalization of 'PartnerID' from the
querystring. All of the other asp pages in the site then seem to read
the first cookie set and thus it appears that the 'wrong' partner
settings are being used.

Has anyone experienced this problem before? Unfortunately altering the
cookie or querystring names would be a non-trivial task so this is not
an option at the moment.

Sessions Or Cookies ?
i'm creating a shopping cart and i need to know when users add products to their shopping cart, does it load a session for each visitor, which when a new customer tries to add it opens a session for him and he closes the site the session closes enabling another visitor to start with an empty basket ?

or does it use cookies instead of sessions ?

my shopping cart does not work properly...
i need to fix it in this way, when a new visitor tries to add products to the shopping cart it doesn't display the previous products of the previous visitor.

noting that i'm not using any registration as yet......

how can i fix that?

i have a file called shop.asp which list the type of products available in the database and then when a type is clicked a list of products under this type will be displayed, then customers can add to the cart whatever they want.....

but this does not work properly because if another user tries to access the cart he'll see the previous products in there....

the cookie wouldn't persist.

3. Can you in-fact update a cookie's key values, or is this fundamentally
incorrect, do you need to re-write the whole cookie?

Session Cookies
I narrowed down with the shopping cart system on my site to the fact that session cookies are not enabled (or being allowed) in IE on some browsers...

I guess the default setting is "Automatic Cookie Handling"

it says that it uses P3P(W3C standard) to determine what cookies should be allowed and what should not...

what is the criteria to allow or block the acceptance of the cookie? I guess I will have to modify the site accordingly? Also what about older browsers...

I need to be able to user session variables on the site..

obviously if users disables cookies all together it will not work.. but it should allow for session cookies to be used.. no?

Sessions & Cookies
I want to do something very simpel. Make a part of my website available
only for users with a username and password. The site is mainly ASP
based. The webserver is an IIS6 and I do NOT have access to server
settings (session timeout, security,...).

I use sessions to set the validation for the users. Basically you are
redirected to a form where you can give a username and password, this is
validated with the values in a database. If the password and username
are ok a session value is set <%=Session("Validated")=True%>*.

At the beginning of each secured page I start with:
<%If Session("Validated")=False Then Response.Redirect("Login.asp") End

So if the session value "validated" is true you can see the secured
pages, else you are redirected to the logon page.

The default timeout value for session is 20 minutes. Because the session
should stay alive during the complete time of the visit I was thinking
of puting the session.timeout to 60 minutes. I set this at the beginning
of every secure page: <%Session.timeout=60%>

Now, Users keep on contacting me saying that they have to relogon quiet
often. This also seems to happen when a user is not on the website for
20 minutes already (session expired). I tested it myself and have the
feeling the I am indeed regularly redirected. Sometimes after 10
minutes, other times 30 minutes, ... There seems not to be any logic in
the time that users are redirected to the logon page.

Because the website is used to fill in a lot of long HTML forms, it is
very frustrating for the users when they are completing a form and then
pressing "Submit" being redirected to the logon page and lose all
entered data.

Is there somebody who can give me more info on the strange session
behavior? For me it is not normal that a session times out in that
unlogic way.

The only solution I can think of is passing the post information to the
logon page and then redirect after validation back to the transaction

How can you reset the timeout counter on a session in ASP? What I was
thinking was that I am doing it maybe wrong?

Now the session variable that let a user have access to the site is set
once at logon time: (<%=Session("Validated")=True%*>*). Then it is
checked on every page that the user opens (<%If
Session("Validated")=False Then Response.Redirect("Login.asp") End If%>)

Would it be a good idea to re-set the variable every time a user
accesses page? Like <%If Session("Validated")=False Then
Response.Redirect("Login.asp") Else Session("Validated")=True End If%>
Would this reset the timer that times out the session? Or do I have to
add something like <%Session.Abandon%> before setting the variable

What would this do on the server performance?
Is this a good way of working with sessions?

Swicth to cookies i.o. sessions?

I am open for all suggestions, please help! In the future there are also
money transactions going over this website, so it has to be a secure
method! I will use a seperate HTTPS host for this.
