Setting IIS Maximum Connections To More Than 10

Every project I am working on, I test against 5 different browsers: Safari, Mozilla, IE7, Opera and IE6 on the same machine. Since Safari has entered the browser lineup, I have been receiving an annoying "HTTP 403.9 - Access Forbidden: Too many users are connected" message.

To solve this issue, do the following:

  1. Download the Administrative Plugin MetaEdit from Microsoft : http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb%3Ben-us%3B301386
  2. Install Application (Comes with old files so skip these in the installation)
  3. Go to Administrative Tool in Control Panel and launch MetaEdit 2.2
  4. Navigate to the key LM/W3WSVC/MaxConnections
  5. Change the value from 10 to the number of connections you need. I chose : 2000000000 to be extra safe ;-)

This will work on:

  • Microsoft Internet Information Server 5.1 on Windows XP Professional
  • Microsoft Internet Information Server 4.0, when used with:
    Microsoft Windows NT 4.0
    Microsoft Windows 2000 Standard Edition
  • Microsoft Internet Information Services 5.0, when used with:
    Microsoft Windows NT 4.0
    Microsoft Windows 2000 Standard Edition

Apple Safari 3 PC Version Beta 3

I am so happy today! Last night I found out Safari 3 was released for Public Beta for both Mac and PC.

Download Link : http://www.apple.com/safari/download/

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en) AppleWebKit/522.11.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0 Safari/522.11.3

Finally, after years of waiting, I am able to test my work and products on Safari and by all accounts what you see on PC is what you'll see on a Mac.

The browser is XP and Vista compatible and uses the familiar Apple chrome interface. The browsing (although slow at first) was suprisingly snappy and I havent encountered any serious issues yet.

The only issue that kind of bugs me is that it is not compatible with a duel dual ( Thanks M. Katz ;-) ) monitor shared desktop environment. You can drag it to your other monitor but if you go full screen, it disapears completely and you have to close the browser. Hopefully this will be fixed in an update.

The best feature is how text on a page looks. Its beautiful. Beats the pants of Mozilla and IE and is similar (but nicer) than Operas text rendering. Not sure I like the extra bold though. Check out this post for more insight and some good points : Font smoothing, anti-aliasing, and sub-pixel rendering

I can finally get CF_FileManager, CFForumExpress, Teamwork CMS, UDI and all our other products fully Safari compatible.

Thank you Apple!!
