Configure requestFiltering for IIS on distribution points

The following information applies when you use distribution points that are enabled for Allow clients to transfer content from this distribution point using BITS, HTTP, and HTTPS.
By default, IIS blocks several file extensions and folder locations. If package source files contain extensions that are blocked in IIS, you must configure the requestFiltering section in the applicationHost.config file on a distribution points that is enabled for Allow clients to transfer content from this distribution point using BITS, HTTP, and HTTPS.
For example, you might have source files for a software deployment that include a folder named bin, or that contain a file with the .mdb file extension. By default, IIS request filtering blocks access to these elements. When you use the default IIS configuration on a distribution point, clients that use BITS fail to download this software deployment from the distribution point. In this scenario, the clients indicate that they are waiting for content. To enable the clients to download this content by using BITS, on each applicable distribution point, edit the requestFiltering section of the applicationHost.config file to allow access to the files and folders in the software deployment.
Use the following procedure to modify requestFiltering for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
  1. Open the applicationHost.config file located in the %Windir%\System32\Inetsrv\Config\ directory on distribution points that are enabled for Allow clients to transfer content from this distribution point using BITS, HTTP, and HTTPS.
  2. Search for the <requestFiltering> section.
  3. Determine the file name extensions and folder names that you will have in the packages on that distribution point. For each extension and folder name that you require, perform the following steps:

    • If it is listed as a fileExtension element, set the value for allowed to true.

      For example, if your package contains a file with an .mdb extension, change the line true to allowed<add fileExtension=".mdb" allowed="false" /> to <add fileExtension=".mdb" allowed="true" />.

      Allow only the file name extensions required for your packages.
    • If it is listed as a <hiddenSegments> element, delete the entry that matches the file name extension or folder name from the file.

      For example, if your package contains a folder with the label of bin, remove the line <add segment=”bin” /> from the file.
  4. Save and close the applicationHost.config file.

Without You I'm nothing..!!

woke up every morning,
my lips on your cheek,
a sleepy smile and the
chase began;

Without you I'm nothing. With you, I'm something. Together, we're everything
as i ran towards the invisible goal,
it seemed so far away,
yet i ran for years and years,
expecting it to be near, but getting fooled again and again;

i should have stopped,
maybe i should have listened to you,
as i kept running towards it,
i slowly faded away from your memories,
every minute and every second;

now as i stand in the middle,
exhausted, tired and clueless,
i turn around to see how far i have come,
and all i see is emptiness;

lonely, scared and plagued by indecision,
I stand here in the middle of nowhere,
not sure of which way to go?

should i leave it all and go forward?
or should i stay here, hoping you would catchup with me?
or should i take the long walk back home to be with you?

far away from what i know,
running towards what i do not know,
wondering if i will ever see you again,
Without You, I’m Nothing.
