Try including the address (IP no. or in any other acceptable format) to your remote server in the Connection String:

<add key="ConnectionString" value="Server=;User ID=user;Password=user;Initial Catalog=Dashboard;Data Source=database_Dev"/>

web.config/ADO.NET command/connection string problem?
Ok, I have searched everywhere and not been able to find an answer yet so I hope someone can help me. I have an application that uses a key in the web.config file to reference a connection string to SQL Server 2000. In the development environment, this works as expected. However, when I edit the web.config file to reference a new database (initial catalog) it doesn't seem to register for some of the command objects (based on stored procs). I will receive an error that the user could not log on to database X, even though the connection should now be referencing database Y. This only happens w...

If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate it. The only other thing that may be relevant is that I am using Source Safe. I don't know why that would matter, but who knows. Thanks for any help!...

Why we use Web.Config File for connection string wether we can use class Library for get connection for whole web Application
 Why we use Web.Config File for connection string wether we can use class Library for get connection for whole web Application  please help me? Friend, Web.config has its own advantages. 1) Web.Config is used to store the important information like connections strings that it can be modified even after the code has been    deployed to the server without compiling the entire application again. 2) Since it is a XML file, there is no need of building the project of you are going to change the connection strings.   If you go for the class files,...

Use web.config with web forms?
 Hi All, I'm doing some unit testing of a web application, and would like to use settings from a web.config file.  Is this possible? Thanks much,- Mark I'd suggest keeping your Unit Tests in a seperate project and using it's own .config file. It will be a little repetition but it will help to keep things seperated for perf and reusability without bloating your production app. I agree with Curt. It is better to seperate options for testing and release version. This will decrease the job to be done once the unit testing process is finished.Haissam Abdul Mal...

running 2 web.configs in the same website 1 in /web.config and one in /swf/web.config
Im having issues doing this. and when i remove the authentication from the swf/web.config it still doesnt seem to be applying to the child website at all. Whats the proper way to set a child website? Thanks!!  The lower most web.config overrides all previous settings. So if you remove the section from the /swf/web.config whatever settings you have in the web.config in the next higher level will have an effect on the content of the child folder.So instead of removing a section, try giving appropriate settings in the /swf/web.config....

Web Forms Security via web.config?
In classic ASP, if you wanted to restrict someone from a certain area on the website (say, a "client area"), you would activate a session flag once their login creditials had been verified, and challenge each visiter at each protected page for that session flag. I had heard that with ASP.NET, this has been greatly simplified through the web.config file, but wasn't offered too much support on the issue.  Does anyone know how it can be implemented simply and quickly via the web.config file?  Are there any simple descriptions online somewhere?  Ideally, I'd like to authorize the users from an admin table in a database, with each person having their own ID and PWD....not authorizing them through static ID and PWD's listed in the web.config file. Anyone know about this?  " src="/emoticons/emotion-18.gif"> See Using the location element you can specify the configuration for a file or directory (including authorization).- Wilco Bauwer (MSFT) /

Is it possible to modify web.config from a web form?
I am trying to create an admin tool for a web application (within the application). I would like to allow an administrator to alter the contents of the web.config file where a lot of custom settings are held through a Web Form in the same application. Is this possible? I can, obviously, read the web.config with out issue. However trying to update the file I am getting the error "The web config file could not be loaded, it is being used by another process". I've also had to give the ASPNET account full control over the file which I am confused about because I have impersonate set to true. I was under the impression that the users credentials would be used for any resource needs? Thanks for any insights, eRic Modifying the web.config will cause your application to restart. It's a bad idea to store runtime modifiable data in the web.config. Instead, use the Configuration Application Block from Microsoft. This will allow you to have a config file seperate from the web.config which is easily updated at runtime. If you are writing an admin tool that actually modifies the web configuration settings, then a different config file is not an option. First, there are no APIs to do this in Whidbey. You'll have to write to the configuration file using XML APIs. When you write to your web.config file from a web app, the web app will indeed restart. But this is a graceful restart, and your current request will be able to complete. So one thing you ca...

Web forms and mobile web forms
Hey everyone, I am looking to develope a web site that depending on the device connecting to it, it will display a certain page. In this case im looking to create a web and wap version of the same project. I have the Web forms version finished using ASP.NET and C# and I am wondering how to create the mobile web form and incorporate it in the project. In the project folder, can I just add a mobile web??? But what about displaying device specific pages?? Cheers -Dudach Yes, you can add mobile web forms and controls to your Web Application project. No problem.
