Creating a GeoStream Server
This topic describes how to manually create and configure a GeoStream server.
When installing GeoBase the settings for the GeoStream server are automatically configured.
However, if you want to manually configure your server or check the settings the steps are listed below.
Running Multiple GeoStream Applications
Every GeoStream application on your server must reside in a unique IIS application pool (GeoStream applications may not share an application pool).
The GeoStream server will not operate if your Windows operating system is running in safe mode. See Troubleshooting a GeoStream Server for details.
Only the GeoStream Server, when installed using the 'GeoStream-only' installation option, has been certified for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2.
Your IIS 7.x instance must be running in Integrated mode, not in Classic mode.
For information on the HTTP handler registration differences between Classic and Integrated modes in IIS, see the Microsoft MSDN Library article Register HTTP Handlers.
Open 'Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager'.
Click on the 'Start' menu and type inetmgr into the search box
Select the server name in the 'Connections' panel on the left. In the 'Actions' panel, on the right, choose 'View Application Pools'.
Ensure that 'Default Website' is listed as using .NET Framework 4.0. If not, right-click the application pool and use the 'Basic Settings' option to adjust the version number.
Modifying the .NET version number may affect other applications on your server.
Return to the 'Connections' pane on the left. Browse to 'Sites' and expand 'Default Website'. If the GeoStream application has already been installed 'GeoStream' will be visible beneath 'Default Website'. If the GeoStream application is not installed complete the following steps:
Select the 'GeoStream' application in the left 'Connections' pane. Open the 'Authentication' feature group and ensure that 'Anonymous Authentication' is enabled.
Select 'File', 'Exit' to close IIS Manager.
The behavior of the GeoStream server can be controlled using the following configuration files:
These files exist on the server side only, and are typically found in the following directory:
These configuration files can be used to manage the authentication of clients with the GeoStream server, the access to data files, and the types of overlay data that can be displayed on a GeoStream map. For detailed information about the contents of these files, see Configuring the server.
