Any problem with .log attachments?

Folks,

  Every time I attach a .log extension file into FB, it does not allow me to download it. An error occurs when clicking in the attached file link (after it was attached):

"The page cannot be found"

  Any idea?

Thanks,

I'm not aware of any problem.  I couldn't reproduce it here.

What's the full filename?

I have tested with many filename... here we have some samples:

- test.log
- _navcclt.log

Maybe is this a security issue from the server? (I'm guessing)

Hi Michael,

  Any ideas? This problem is getting me nuts!

Did you check the IIS settings to see if it may be a security setting on the server?

I'm stumped honestly... I'm not sure how to reproduce the problem.

I found the problem: there's a conflict running IIS/FB and URLScan. Uninstalling URLScan solves the problem.

Andrea,

I would recommend against uninstalling URLScan as it's helps to secure your MS IIS server. 

You can just change settings allow for .log extensions to be downloaded.  Go to URLScan.ini and add .log to the AllowExtension section or remove it from DenyExtension (depends on which one you have it set to check).

It's well-documented in the URLScan help files, but I'd be happy to help.
