Configuration hints for MSII

Keywords:     MS IIE

Question:

I am trying to get webbatch to work with IIS 2.0 on Windows NT 4.0 build 1381. I believe I have successfully entered in the proper temporary ID and access code, but whenever I do a simple command in webbatch the server returns: CGI Error The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers. The headers it did return are:

Then if I try and view the source, here is what I get:

	Error in CGI Application
	CGI Error
	The specified CGI application
	misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers.  

Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?

Suggestions:

I have a similar setup and had similar problems.

2. You may be having file security problems.

Summary:

The main issues to getting this working revolve around:
  1. Set up virtual directory with execute permission.

  2. Set security setting to directory so that the IIS default user can at least read the directory.

  3. Look in event log, webbatch log, and server logs for helpful error messages.
