I know nothing about Certificates other than they're used for SSL. I've never had to deal with client certs and I am completely lost.
We have a legacy app that requires a client cert. A new vendor is trying to connect to this application. They issued the cert and sent it to us, but I'b having some trouble getting it to work. I've got IIS set up correctly, based on the many articles I've read.
A basic understanding of certs is making this more difficult than I think it should be, so I'm hoping someone can answer some of my questions:
1. They issued a .cer file. When installd on my client maching I don't seem to have a private key with it. Should there be?
2. What's the difference between a .pfx and .cer? I've tried googling this and the textbok answers don't help. Can a .cer have a private key, or is that only in a .pfx?
EDIT: One more question.
The vendor sent us the client cert we should be using, it is issued by themselves. It's my understanding that I also need a Root cert from them to put into our Trusted Root store to go along with this, is that correct?
I have over 15 years of basic webforms experience. I need to correct a site that completes file uploads written in 2006 with a basic basic HTML file uploader. Its issues include no response to the user on occassion. I've been reading about the BufferlessStream and the JQRY Valums uploader
Is there any possibility of the bufferless stream working with web handler and webforms? or is undertaking my first MVC the only option?
This is a new path for me and I'm finding the numerous branches of information a tad bit overwhelming. What is a good starting point?
There are definitely options out there that will work with web handlers and webforms. I use a modified version of the blueimp file uploader on a couple of my webform applications. It supports drag and drop uploading, multiple files at a time, chunked uploads for large files, progress bars, etc.
Do a search for "blueimp multiple file uploader" and check out the examples they have. Then if you have any specific questions I'll do the best I can to answer them.
I'm looking for an innovative idea realize a final project studies
No it wont work like that you may use google or other search engine to find "what is innovative to you" rather asking these kind of questions in forums.
If you have any problems in implementing your ideas, or you dont know how which platform to develop we do help you to solve the problems.
Your tutor is the best person to suggest you an idea if you are not able to find one.
well,I am very much a novice at this game. However, (and this may be wrong) your ListView info was passed to you via the server. You lost the connection (by Time-out),and your browser did not restore the page.This is both a good and bad thing.
friends i am going to start a project for the great mind challenge 2012 which is "VOICE BASED WEB BROWSER" but i am in confused state how i can start this project?
if u have any suggestion please tell me?
if u have any ideas how the browser look like?
so that i can analyze ideas and my project will be successful.
is there any other alternative rather than ASP.net?
Well you could try PHP, JSP etc., all of which have their own websites and books that you can find. It is usually best to get experience with the basics of the platform you are planning to work on before you try something as advanced as this project.
Please go through the links shared with you. You have speech based libraries available for C#. Now how exactly you are planning to use is what all depends. Not sure how you plan to use a web app for speech. Do some research, Google.
The idea sounds good. But I am not sure how much help you can get on the questions you asked. Its your project so you need to define the most of it.
But since it is a Browser it will a client application (possible Winforms or WPF).
Something like this: Web Browser in C#[^]
And you will have to have this application capable enough to be able to learn and act on voice commands.
Something like this: Speech Recognition[^]
Perhaps the combination of both these projects itself is your complete project. But I thought I should atleast point you in right direction so that you know that it is totally feasible project.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream. Discover.
