When compression is turned on globally for the root website, is there a way to turn compression off for a specific page? (ex. download.aspx) I would like to turn it off on a few select pages where we are streaming files to the client. I'm using IIS 6.

Yes, that's possible. You can do it using adsutil.vbs. The syntax will be something like this:

cscript C:\Inetpub\AdminScripts\adsutil.vbs set W3SVC/{siteID}/Root/{subfolder}{page.asp}/DoDynamicCompression False
