    RM EasyLink & IIS configuration

    I need help from anyone out there who knows about Easylink on an RM CC3 network.

    I have created my own shared area that i need to now create a link to from the Easylink home page. I have added a virtual directory for this shared area in IIS but don't know where to go from here! I know the share needs an address so that it can reached from Easylink as this is how the Learning resources area is reached but am hazy on exactly what i should be doing.

    Any help appretiated

    Re: RM EasyLink & IIS configuration

    Are you wanting to have this shared as a webpage or access to the files like user work areas (WebDAV)?

    To put a link in you'll need to edit one of the files in the D:\RMNetwork\RMManage\Web Components\Easylink directory. If you open default.htm you'll find it's just a frames page pointing to a few different ones. Where the link points to will depend on your virtual directory relative to the easylink directory.

    Re: RM EasyLink & IIS configuration

    I have managed to link to the area from the Easylink home page now (Well internally anyway. I haven't had the chance to connect from outside to test this yet) but the NTFS permissions are not kicking in as they do internally. I have Basic authentication and Integrated authentication ticked in IIS for this virtual directory but a random student can access and open files freely. Again i'll mention that security internally works as it should and this student wouldn't have any access to folders other than the ones they have created.

    I have had to add the IUSR user to the NTFS permissions of this shared folder to get access in the first place and have tried Basic authentication on it's own then Integrated on it's own to see if this makes any difference but it doesn't seem to.

    Yes i want the folder to appear like their work areas and not like a webpage as its appearing at the moment. How do i do this?

    Re: RM EasyLink & IIS configuration

    Ok I seem to have configured all permissions up ok now but can't get this to display as a web folder rather than a web page. Any ideas?

    Re: RM EasyLink & IIS configuration

    I think this lies in the link that takes them to the folder. If you open the USER.ASP file, around line 203 you'll see something like this:

    Code:
    <A HREF= "<%=strFolder%>"
    			 TARGET="_new" status="Home Directory" title="Home Directory" 
          urn="Home Directory" FOLDER="<%=strFolder%>">[img]images/buttons/mydocs.gif[/img]
    			<font face="Arial Black"><FONT size=4></FONT></font></A>
    I'm not 100%, but I think it's the folder attribute that will do it, as long as the virtual directory you made is set up the same as the other "work folder" ones made by easylink.

    Re: RM EasyLink & IIS configuration

    Have you put a folder attribute on the hyperlink you made to your own folder?

    Re: RM EasyLink & IIS configuration

    Sorry this the last one was a duplicate. I've been trying to edit the user.asp file in frontpage but keep getting the error:

    An error has occurred while processing the current page. Please click here to refresh this page, or try again later. If this error persists please report it to your local administrator Technical Information (for support personnel): Error Type: Active Server Pages, ASP 0239 (0x80004005)
    UNICODE ASP files are not supported.

    Server Name: cvhsmywork.chelmer.essex.sch.uk
    Error Source: /easylink/user.asp, line 1
    Page: GET /easylink/user.asp
    Time: 09 February 2007, 12:21:52
    Any ideas?

    It's the format that it's being saved in, FrontPage is pathetic. Use something like notpead.

    Re: RM EasyLink & IIS configuration

    Don't know what else to suggest... a few suggestions in this forum thread might help though. What about if you rename the dida folder so it doesn't contain a space?

    Re: RM EasyLink & IIS configuration

    lol it does help if you spell the folder you want to share the same in the FOLDER tag line!!

    I also renamed the share to exclude the space as you said and i can now access the share via a web folder horaay.......but the folder is empty and there is definately content in there. Sounds like a permission issue but i've set these up correctly as students can view the contents internally.

    I really appretiate your help and the time you given me, Thank you but i feel i'm almost there.

    Re: RM EasyLink & IIS configuration

    A reset of IIS seemed to fix this. Thanks for all your help again.
