I am migrating an application to ASP.Net,SQL, etc, from my own DB Format, written in MFC/CPP.
My own Order Record format (struct) contains an array of upto 31 entries. Each entry is a structure in its own right, containing Display Info such as Quantity,Description, Price,as well as info like 'Whodonnit', 'WhoCanEdit' WhenDone, and various other titbits of interest. In MFC/CPP I implemented this by simply declaring an array of these things inside my 'Table'structure. What is the agreed way of doing this in SQL.
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.
