comment Authenticate user in WinForms (Nothing to do with ASP.Net)
@Dan - The application I was writing about didn't use a database, so using the filesystem was a logical choice. I'm also talking about an application that had under 100 active users-- scalability wasn't an issue. Having said that, though, Windows Server does a pretty good job w/ large amounts of file traffic in my experience. I have file servers at Customer sites that regularly have 500+ active users and 10K+ files being interacted-with at any given time and performance is fine.

comment IIS Can't Serve Certain File Extension
@WarrenP Like I said-- I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with MSFT's design choice. As stated in other answers here, IIS will allow you to create a wildcard mapping so, in your example, it isn't necessary to create large numbers of mappings if you can live w/ a wildcard. Just add a "*" mapping at the top of a website and you, in effect, nullify the design decision.

comment IIS Can't Serve Certain File Extension
@WarrenP - I believe they're considering a "secure by default"-type setting. (Not saying I agree or disagree w/ the idea, but I believe that's the justification.)

comment What's the advantage of OpenVPN over SSTP?
In case somebody blunders into this, 5+ years later, PPTP is not a reasonable solution for anybody anymore (and hasn't been since 2012): cloudcracker.com/blog/2012/07/29/cracking-ms-chap-v2
