QUESTION

How do I tell IIS 7 to transfer larger files with the SAT module?

ANSWER

The default maximum length for an IIS file transfer is 30 MB, but you can configure the Secure Ad Hoc Transfer (SAT) module to allow transfers up to 2 GB by adding the maxAllowedContentLength attribute to IIS's ApplicationHost.config file (in %windir%\System32\inetsrv\config\). Adding this attribute will allow the SAT module to transfer larger files to IIS. (2 GB is a limitation of Web browsers, not the Secure Ad Hoc Transfer module.)

Make a backup of the file before making changes to it.

To add the attribute to the file

  1. Open ApplicationHost.config in a text editor.

  2. Scroll to the appropriate section in the file and add the following text:

    <security>

    <requestFiltering>

    <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="2147483648" />

    </requestFiltering>

    </security>

  3. Save and close the file.

Refer to #10526 - FIX: Errors or performance issues when sending files larger than 10 MB if you are sending files larger than 10 MB.

Refer to Editing the Configuration File in the online help, if necessary.

Refer to Introduction to ApplicationHost.config for a discussion of ApplicationHost.config.
