SAS-X Blog Aggregator

Tal Galili has started up a SAS blog aggregator. The more folks involved in SAS, the better, as far as I am concerned.

Getting SAS/IntrNet Operational on IIS7

IIS7 is a major change in IIS. Don Henderson contacted me and asked if I could help get it working. It really isn't hard but involves a few steps.

How do you get SAS/IntrNet operational.

1. Enable CGI Role on Server through the Server Manager.

2. Add in your website in IIS. Right-click the scripts or cgi-bin directory where
the broker.exe is located and select Convert to Application.

3. While still having the scripts/cgi-bin folder selected, double-click on the handler mappings icon on the right-hand side. There should already be a listing for *.cgi at the top. Double-click on it --> Request restrictions --> Mapping --> Invoke --> File or Folder, Access --> Execute.

4. Click on the machine name in IIS. Click on ISAPI and CGI restrictions. Click on Add..., specify the full path to the broker.exe.

5. Optional: set up a host header.

Click on the Default website or on the website name. On the far right-hand side of the screen, click on bndings. Specify a host header (, for example).

Good luck and contact me if you have issues.
