Solving ReportViewer Rendering Issue on IIS7

Applies to:
  • Internet Information Services 7.o (IIS7)
  • Microsoft Report Viewer Redistributable 2005

Symptoms:

  • Unable to render ReportViewer on ASP.NET Web pages while running on IIS7.
  • You have no problem viewing your reports when running on debug mode with your Visual Studio 2005.
  • You are able to view your reports on Report Manager but not able to view them on IIS7.
  • You encounter JavaScript error when loading your report page with ReportViewer. Image buttons such as calendar appear as red ‘X’.
Cause:
  • When the ReportViewer control is added to Web Form (.aspx), the
    Reserved.ReportViewerWebControl.axd httpHandler is added to System.Web section of the Web.Config file. In IIS7, it should be added under System.Webserver section.
  • IIS7 Handler Mappings does not contain Reserved.ReportViewerWebControl.axd httpHandler, and therefore unable to render the ReportViewer elements needed by the JavaSript.
Resolution:
  • Open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager and select your Web application.
  • Under IIS area, double-click on Handler Mappings icon.
  • At the Action pane on your right, click on Add Managed Handler.
  • At the Add Managed Handler dialog, enter the following:
    Request path: Reserved.ReportViewerWebControl.axd
    Type: Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.HttpHandler
    Name: Reserved-ReportViewerWebControl-axd
  • Click OK.
Reserved-ReportViewerWebControl-axd handler is now added to your Handler Mappings list. Notice that the following line has also been added to your Web.config file under the system.webserver’s handler section:
Run your report again.

How to Configure Windows 2003 server as NTP Server?

The Microsoft Windows operating systems from Windows 2000 onwards has a built-in time synchronization service – ‘Windows Time’. This article describes how to configure the Microsoft Windows 2003 and Windows 2000 time service as a NTP time server. It shows how to modify registry entries to configure the Microsoft Windows Time Service. The Windows Time service allows a Windows network to provide synchronisation of all machines within a domain.

Windows 2003 Server Configuration

Windows 2003 has expanded on the original Windows 2000 time service by providing a true NTP implementation. The time service, installed by default, can synchronise to a NTP Server. Indeed, by manipulating registry settings for the service it can act as both an NTP server and client to synchronise other network clients in the domain.

The ‘Windows Time’ service should be present in the systems service list. The application executable is ‘w32time.exe’. The parameter list for w32time can be found in the registry at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesW32Time

Before modifying registry entries it is good a dood idea to backup the registry settings. The registry can then be restored in the event of problems being encountered.
To configure a Windows 2003 machine to synchronise to an external NTP server, edit the following registry entries:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesW32TimeConfigAnnounceFlags
Set the ‘Announce Flags’ registry entry to 5, to indicate a reliable time source.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesW32TimeTimeProvidersNTPClientSpecialPollInterval
The ‘Special Poll Interval’ registry entry defines the period in seconds that the Windows 2003 machine should poll the NTP server. A recommended value is 900 seconds, which equates to every 15 minutes.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesW32TimeParametersNtpServer
The ‘NTP Server’ parameter is used to provide a list of IP addresses or DNS names, separated by a space, of NTP servers that the Windows 2003 machine can synchronise to.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesW32TimeTimeProvidersNTPServerEnabled
Changing the ‘Enabled’ flag to the value 1 enables the NTP Server.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesW32TimeParametersType
Change the server type to NTP by specifying ‘NTP’ in the ‘Type’ registry entry.

Windows 2000 Time Service Configuration

Windows 2000 has an integrated time synchronisation service, installed by default, which can synchronise to a NTP Server. Indeed, by manipulating registry settings, the service can act as both an SNTP client and SNTP server to synchronise other network clients.

Before modifying registry entries it is good a dood idea to backup the registry settings. The registry can then be restored in the event of problems being encountered.
The ‘Windows Time’ service should be present in the systems service list. The application executable is ‘w32time.exe’. The parameter list for w32time can be found in the registry at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesW32TimeParameters

Windows 2000 can operate as an NTP client and synchronise to an NTP server by setting parameter ‘NTP Server’ to the IP address of a NTP Server.

By default, the Microsoft Windows 2000 machine will synchronise to the specified NTP time server every 8 hours (or 3 times a day), which may not be enough to maintain accurate synchronisation. The period can be reduced by setting the ‘Period’ parameter to how many times a day synchronisation is required. Setting the period to 48 will activate synchronisation with the NTP server once every half hour.
Windows 2000 can also be configured to act as an NTP server by setting the ‘Local NTP’ parameter to ‘1’.

After editing any of the registry entries for the windows time service, the service must be restarted for the settings to take effect. The services can be started or stopped from the service control applet in ‘administrative tools’. Alternatively the service can be controlled via the DOS net command thus:

net start w32time
net stop w32time

NTP Troubleshooting

A number of problems can be encountered when configuring the Windows Time Service. NTP operates using the UDP protocol over TCP/IP. Therefore the TCP/IP network infrastructure must be operational for NTP to be effective. Synchronisation issues may arise when NTP attempts to synchronise to an inaccurate time reference or if network delays are excessive.

Synchronising Time on Network Devices

As well as synchronising Microsoft Windows servers and workstations, NTP can also be used to synchronise network devices, such as hubs, switches and routers. Any network device that can synchronise to a NTP server can be pointed to the Windows server to achieve time synchronisation. In this way the whole network and accompanying infrastructure can be synchronised.

How to Bypass Internet Filter at Work Or School

If some websites get blocked in your company or school, how to access those websites at work or school? Today more and more employers and schools are becoming aware of the amount of time their employees or students are spending using the Internet for personal reasons. The network administrator uses a firewall or proxy server to restrict access to websites or other Internet protocols. Since all your Internet communication passes through your network’s firewall, it’s not strange that some websites (like myspace or game sites) get censored in your company or school.

There are three easy ways to get around the Internet filter:

1. The easiest way is to use a web based proxy. A web-based proxy is powered by server-side software such as PHProxy, CGIProxy, Poxy or custom proxy scripts. A web based proxy has a web interface very similar to the google search box. Just enter the website address you want to visit in that box and click “submit” button, everything is done! You can find hundreds working web-based proxies at http://www.aplusproxy.com/webproxy.php.

2. Set a proxy in your Internet browser to browse blocked websites. This is not as simple as the first method, but it can be even more effective.
Pre-Step 1.) Go to the public proxy list at http://www.aplusproxy.com/proxylist/index.php.
Pre-Step 2.) Copy a few proxy addresses (Example – IP:Port) to the notepad. Some proxies may be dead so you need more than one proxy for test.
Then, if you’re using Internet Explorer:
Step 1.) Open your Internet Explorer.
Step 2.) On the Tools menu in Internet Explorer, click Internet Options, click the Connections tab, and then click LAN Settings.
Step 3.) Under Proxy server, click to select the Use a proxy server for your LAN check box.
Step 4.) In the Address box, type the IP address of the proxy server.
Step 5.) In the Port box, type the port number of that proxy (such as 80 or 8080).
Step 6.) You can click to select the Bypass proxy server for local addresses check box (optional)
Step 7.) Click OK to close the dialog boxes.
Step 8.) Your IE should now be configured to browse the net through a proxy server.

Detailed setting For Firefox browser users is available at http://www.aplusproxy.com/faq/index.php.

3. Download free proxy software. Some proxy software (like Freenet, JAP, and Tor) can automatic search the proxies from the Internet and configure the browser setting for you. For more info, please go to http://www.aplusproxy.com/torpark.php.

The Importance of Teamwork

Whether in the workplace or on the football field, or even amongst members of a community, effective teamwork can produce incredible results. However, working successfully as a team is not as easy as it may seem. Effective teamwork certainly does not just happen automatically; it takes a great deal of hard work and compromise. There are a number of factors that must be in place to cohere together as a team and work seamlessly.

• Good leadership: Effective leadership is one of the most important components of good teamwork. The team’s leader should possess the skills to create and maintain a positive working environment and motivate and inspire the team members to take a positive approach to work and be highly committed. An effective team leader will promote a high level of morale and make them feel supported and valued.
• Clear communication: Communication is a vital factor of all interpersonal interaction and especially that of a team. Team members must be able to articulate their feelings, express plans and goals, share ideas and see each other’s viewpoints.
• Establishing roles: It is absolutely necessary for team members to understand what their role on the team is, what he/she is responsible for. The team leader can enable this by defining the purpose in a clear-cut manner in the beginning of the formation of the team.
• Conflict Resolution: Conflicts will arise no matter how well a team functions together. The best way to counter conflict is to have structured methods of conflict resolution. Team members should be able to voice their concerns without fear of offending others. Instead of avoiding conflict issues, a hands-on approach that resolves them quickly is much better. It is often advised that the team leader sit with the conflicting parties and help work out their differences without taking sides and trying to remain objective if possible.
• Set a good example: The team leader must set a good example for good teamwork to come about. In order to keep team members positive and committed and motivated, the team leader herself/himself needs to exhibit these qualities. The team looks to the leader for support and guidance so any negativity on the leader’s part can be disastrous.

Regardless of what type of sales you are in, you may one day be asked to be part of a team sales effort, and knowing how to effectively work on and with a team is going to be crucial to your success and that of your team.
