All I want to do is disable the TRACE.AXD method, which I can do in the machine.config, however the speaker then said that if someone knew how to write the code into their web.config, then it would become activated.
So, the question is, does the web.config for a client (either created by accident, purposely, or maliciously) ALWAYS over-ri...Configuration Files FAQs (web.config, machine.config...)
What is Web.Config File?
It is an optional XML File which stores configuration
details for a specific asp.net web application.

modify the settings in the Web.Config

effect.. By default, the Web.Config file applies to all the pages
in the current directory and its subdirectories.
Extra: You can
use the <location> tag to
lock configuration settings in the Web.Config
file so that they cannot be overridden by a Web.Config
file located bel...Read info from web.config, machine.config, app.config....

web.config allows you to add configuration settings for a specific website that contains that specific web.config file. you can additionally create web.config files in specific folders of your website and their setting apply just to that folder and below.
machine.config also contains configuration settings, but they apply to the entire machine (all websites) unless a specific web.config has overridden them.

So, I'm building a composite control that has 3 web references I dynamically set in the Settings/app.config file. What I'm looking for is a way to allow the consuming developer to edit the URLs in design-time. However, I can't seem to get to the configuration of my compiled DLL.

We have!Specifically, we have a web site that is an app with numerous virtual directory applications pointing to different projects. And 99.9% of the time there are no issues. But occassionally people get a 500 error and the exception we get back (we use exception publishing) is always this one. It's flagging the <authentication> node as the troublemaker.Any ideas?...
