comment What IIS authentication method to use with Git server hosted on IIS?
It turns out that for some reason Windows Authentication works from a remote machine, but when I try to access webgitnet from the same machine the site is running on, the authentication fails (using same credentials). Have you ever encountered this issue?

No, I normally use OpenSSH - I'll give Putty a shot.

No popup occurs, just hangs. I use Git Extensions all the time with other repos requiring auth, works no problem...

Thanks for the response. I have since discovered windows auth (with no SSL) is working fine for me from a bash command line. When I try a push with Git Extensions, which I normally use, it does not work. It hangs without ever prompting me for user/password. That sounds like not your problem, so thanks again for the clarification. If you do have success using Git Extensions for a push, I would be interested in hearing about that.

comment Are there any connection limits on Windows 7 IIS v7.5?
@TristanK I framed the question as best as I could with my limited understanding. The issue I was trying to deal with was the IIS connection limit exceeded errors (actually EventID 4226) that you can get when hosting IIS on Windows XP. The reason I assumed half-open connections were the issue was that this is what was patched by the TCPIP.SYS patcher I used (lvllord.de/?lang=en&url=4226patch/faq), which resolved the issue.

No need to pay for a server, as I was having no issue with connection limit - only half-open connection limit, which is a solved problem.

comment how to reset password on Instiki?
Thx - I was easily able to read the password from the system table once I installed sqliteadmin, since it is stored in plain text (boo!).

Clarification - the tool shows what the limit WOULD be if it is turned on by the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip\Parameters\EnableConn‌​ectionRateLimiting=1

I confirmed with this tool that on Windows 7 the limit is still 10.

I am referring to the 10 half-open connection limit. The same limit that was fixed by this Win XP patch: lvllord.de/?url=tools.

Thanks, but interested in Windows 7, not Vista.

What is the basis for your statement that there is no concurrent connection limit in Windows 7 IIS? Is it an assumption based on your knowledge of Vista, or have you confirmed it to be the case?

comment Netbook vs. Notebook for Programmers?
That's a bit harsh - wouldn't it be better to talk with that person to try to bring them to a better understanding of developers' needs? Firing people at random is not good for overall productivity either :)
