Setup Web Admin Tool for Production Servers

From khaivq at http://forums.asp.net/1155428/ShowPost.aspx:

“I have been able installed WebAdminTool for Production Servers using the following steps:

Create a virtual directory ASP.NETWebAdminFiles in IIS that point to C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\ASP.NETWebAdminFiles

Open properties windows of the new virtual directory, make sure that it is configured to run with ASP.NET 2.0, and in Security tab, uncheck Anonymous Access, check Integrated Windows Authentication.

After that, you will be able to connect to WebAdminTools using the following syntax
http://localhost/ASP.NETWebAdminFiles/default.aspx?applicationPhysicalPath=XXX&applicationUrl=/YYY
in my case, it is:
http://localhost/ASP.NETWebAdminFiles/default.aspx?applicationPhysicalPath=D:\Tasks\Libranyon\Photonyon\&applicationUrl=/Photonyon

Although I don't recommend to do it, if you want to access WebAdminTool from other computer, open WebAdminPage.cs from (C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\ASP.NETWebAdminFiles\App_Code) and comment the following code block
            if (!application.Context.Request.IsLocal) {
                SecurityException securityException = new SecurityException((string)HttpContext.GetGlobalResourceObject("GlobalResources", "WebAdmin_ConfigurationIsLocalOnly"));
                WebAdminPage.SetCurrentException(application.Context, securityException);
                application.Server.Transfer("~/error.aspx");
            }
WebAdminTool still be protected by Intergrated Windows Authentication, so you still some have some defense here.“
