IIS reverse proxy in Win8

Q: IIS reverse proxy in Win8

I am trying to setup a Win8 box as a "reverse proxy" web server using IIS.

The goal is as simple as it gets. I do not need subdomains to go to different servers, but rather to redirect all port-80 and port-443 (HTTP and HTTPS) traffic to http://localhost:2080.

I have been trying to get IIS to do that for a week now, without any success. I feel depressed and worthless
Is there any good soul out there who would be willing to explain me, in a few steps, how the above can be accomplished? Many many thanks in advance!

Preferred Solution: IIS reverse proxy in Win8

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi folks,

I am using XP-pro. I am trying to get an application, which does not let you specify any network settings and ports, to use instead of the internet which is filtered and blocked by a firewall, a connection which i established via ssh on the localhost.

I am looking for an application which will route all connections to the internet (no matter which port or only specific ports) to 127.0.0.1:whatever-port.

I am not talking about the IE proxy settings here.

Thanks

Thinking of using IIS and URL rewrite for a pure reverse proxy server on a Windows 10 machine which will be routing traffic to 3 Struts2 Web applications using Apache Tomcat servers on Windows 10 machines.

Please let me know whether this would be a healthy configuration.

I have 3 laptops on my home group "MIGOL":
(A) a Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga with Windows 8.1 Professional
(B) a Samsung with Windows 8.1 Home (upgraded from Windows 8)
(C) an Acer Aspire with Windows 7 Home
All windows are 64 bits versions and all use Local accounts with my username "mo" as an Administrator.
I have defined shares on all machines with names like "drv-c" or "drv-d". I all the shares I have only the user "mo" and the group Administrators having access to the shares and I have removed the "everyone" user.

From laptop (C) I can access the shares is both laptops (A) and (B).
From laptop (A) I can access the shares in laptop (B) and from (B) I can access the shares in (A)
But... from laptop (A) or laptop (B) I cannot access any share in laptop (C). I get a pop-up asking for credentials where I put my username and my password but I get a "refusal" mentioning "the username of password are incorrect". I have tried to add the "everyone" user to get access to the shares in the Win7 machine but it does not help a bit.

Summarizing: From Windows 7 I can access shares in Windows 8.1 machines, but from Windows 8.1 I cannot access shares in a Windows 7 machine.

Does anyone has a solution for this anomaly?

A:share win7 from win8.1 fails but the reverse succeeds

You didn't mention where you are removing or adding the Everyone share from?

Both the Security tab and the Sharing tab on the Users folder requires the Everyone share to be enabled.

It sounds like Network Discovery or File and Printer sharing may be turned off on the Windows 7 machine but I'm sure you checked that?

I currently have Win7 & Win8 preview in separate partitions on the same machine. I am trying to figure out the best way to install win8 pro on my system and keep my current dual boot setup with Win 7 intact and stay legal.

So....I have a 3 licence family pack of windows 7 of which I have used only 1 licence. Is there some way I can use one of the remaining win7 licences to upgrade win8pro over top of the Win8 preview and keep my current dual boot win7/win8 setup(legally) and without messing up my current Win7 installation (or Win 8 preview installation for that matter)? Is there any advantage in getting the OEM version instead?

A:Question- upgrading win7HP/win8 preview dual boot to win7/win8 pro

If I understand it correctly; Anyone dual booting a legit version of Window Vista, XP or Win7 and Win8 RP can use the upgrade version of Win8 to do a clean install over the Win8 RP version.

Hopefully my explanation of this problem is not too confusing, this my first post.

My system is a multi-boot for Win7, Win8.1 & XP. I boot into Win7 most of the time. The multi-boot is controlled via EasyBCD in Win7. My data drive is a separate disk - F. I have been running this configuration for over a year without any major problems.

The system is an older Dell-XPS Core2 Quad CPU Q9450 A 2.66GHz with 8Gb memory
System drive - 1Tb with four partitions
Data drive - 1 Tb one partition

Recently I booted into Win8.1 after a few weeks of using only Win7. The data drive F: was not available. It does not show up in Disk Management and under Device Manager it shows as not connected to the system when the Unavailable Devices are displayed.

Booting back to Win7, the data drive is available, no problems with it. There are not any errors in the event/system logs in Win8.1 or Win7 related to the data drive F.

One possible cause might be that the motherboard battery was replaced about a week ago. I had to go in the BIOS and make changes for problems encountered when Win7 was booted. Unfortunately, I didn't boot Win8.1 to see if it had any problems. I've looked at the BIOS, but don't see anything that might cause this problem.

The config for the EasyBCD is below for boot into Win7
There are a total of 4 entries listed in the bootloader.

Default: Microsoft Windows 7
Timeout: 30 seconds
Boot Drive: C:\

Hey all,

I have been going crazy trying to find the nitty-gritty details of what goes on under the hood with the upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 on a Surface Pro 2 I am considering upgrading.

I am aware the many Windows 8.1 devices have OEM Product Keys embedded in the BIOS. I am trying to find information on how Windows 10, if installed from a .ISO bootable media, interacts with this key, and how Digital Entitlement plays into all of this. It's currently hard for me to make sense of a lot of this. Can anyone help clarify how all these elements play with one-another?

Another question regarding this process I have currently: If I use a NEW Windows 10 product key during installation, would the new key replace the previous (8.1 OEM) one in the BIOS?

The more I find out about all this, the more mystery there seems to be to it. I am just trying to find the cleanest way to install Windows 10 on a Surface Pro 2, and this BIOS OEM key and Digital Entitlement vs. Product Key thing is really confusing me. Sorry if this isn't the best place to ask, I'm just pretty lost right now and could really use advice from someone who's really knowledgeable about this stuff, currently.

Thanks all .

Hello Guru Members

I work for a small charity organisation for the elderly, (not trying to pluck heart strings), and the situation is that we were granted 7 new computers, these computers have Windows 8.1, and because we have an existing domain network we actually need to have Windows 8.1 Professional installed.

So prior to knowing that Windows 8.1 could not connect to our network, I had already started getting all the Windows updates, and cleaning the PC's of all the Lenovo add-on's software.

Once I realised that it was not Windows 8.1 Pro on the PC's but only Windows 8.1, being a charity we were able to purchase from the Microsoft Volume Licensing Centre 7 Windows 8.1 Professional licences.

I tried to use the VLC licence through the 'Windows Add-on's feature in Windows 8.1 , but a Volume Licence key is not accepted, and i have also been told that I must download the Windows 8.1 Professional .ISO from the Volume Licensing Centre, and install this particular download version.

But my question is, when I do the installation from Windows 8.1 to Windows 8.1 pro, will it give me the option to do an upgrade installation, I worried as I don't want to lose all the previous windows updates, and Lenovo hardware driver files.

Or, is there a way to get the Volume Licence Key into the existing Windows 8.1 to unlock the Pro features, or even a clever way to trick the Windows installation.

Any members help would be really helpful.

On my computer there is a pre-installed Windows 8 which works fine for
UEFI boot (Secure boot not necessary).

Now when I switch in UEFI setup at boot time the UEFI mode into the CSM (BIOS) mode
and restart then Windows 8 is not starting any more.

As far as I find out an UEFI-based Windows 8 can only boot with UEFI mode enabled.

So my question is: Can I turn an existing UEFI based Windows 8 installation into
an CSM/BIOS based installation (=a Win8 which boots successfully even when I enable CSM in UEFI setup) ?

If yes: How do I do that?

As I am currently back using Win8 due to an unrelated issue, I would like to know how to have Win8 show the SkyDrive folder at the top of the navigation pane whilst still using 'show all folders' and 'automatically expand to folder' settings.

Hello, as the title indicates, my problem is that something on my computer is continuing to set my LAN Settings to use the proxy PAC detailed. My internet explorer is completely not working (cannot access any web pages). My league of legends client (which goes through IE I believe) is also not working. All other internet applications are working fine. Any help removing this would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

This 64GB internal card was working fine on win8.0 Acer v5, laptop.

Tried four different SD cards, win8.1 could not see any.
I have checked with SFC and DISM no problems.
Hardware Diagnostic tool does not find the SD.
Updated drivers from Acer. No help.
Have Auto Play set to use for everything.
Tried 8GB and 32GB SD cards, nothing.
If I plug the SD cards into a USB adapter they all work fine.

This sucks big time as the SD is my daily back up drive.

Any help?

Thanks

A:SD Card Gone after win8.0 update to win8.1

OK, problem solved. Win8.1 kept seeing the SD card slot and installing the "Standard SD card slot drivers.

Acer's Support for this model V5 showed the card reader as an Alcom or something close to that and I was pretty sure that was wrong. I reinstalled an older backup image of win8 and Device manager showed the SD card reader as Broadcom SD SCSI drivers.

I reinstated the win8.1 in place of the win8 backup and then I went back to the Acer V5 models then looked through until I found a card reader that had Broadcom drivers. Downloaded that and installed and all is well with the world again.

Who was at fault? Beats me, but the card reader is obviously telling win8.1 that it is just a vanilla slot. Acer got it wrong for not listing a Broadcom card reader driver with this model. On many of their models they list two or three different drivers, but for mine there was only one and it was the wrong one for what was actually in the laptop.

The original win8.0 worked fine as the Broadcom drives were installed at the Acer factory.

I just downloaded the Technet version of Win8 Pro. When trying to UPGRADE the RP version, I keep getting a message to "remove install media, boot windows normally, and then add the install media afterwards".

BUT, if someone manages to upgrade, please post the procedure!

Nope, looks like a clean install is needed but the personal files can be kept... I will let you know.

A:Cannot upgrade to Win8 Pro Retail from Win8 RP.

The way I had heard was you would be able to use an Upgrade Version of RTM if you had RP installed. It would still do a clean install but save your personal files. It was to satisfy the requirement to have a previous version installed for the Upgrade key to work.

the product key is embedded on BIOS and honestly is not worth upgrading to windows 8.1 and then windows 10, it's better if you upgrade directly to windows 10. if your system has Home version sand you want the Pro version, you can simply upgrade to widnows 10 and then change the product key on it, it will switch to Pro version automatically. or you can do a clean windows 10 install and once at desktop change the product key http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/7209-product-key-change-windows-10-a.html

Hi,

I do not have a Recovery CD from the Acer Recovery Software that you make to reset the pc back to factory default settings.And I then :

1) installed win 8 pro from dvd - and found I could not create a recovery dvd to reset pc back to factory default settings
2) reinstalled win 8 (not pro) which required the win 8 pro dvd to be put into the cd/dvd drive
3) when it was completed,i found that the acer software had all been deleted,and I still could not create the recovery dvd's after installing the acer software as there was message that said that the Hard Drive Configuration Is Not Set To Factory Default, for all options ....to create recovery dvd's or reset etc [as I guess the hdd has the os from the win 8 pro dvd and not the version from the factory.

And when I used the Repair CD
I) there was a message that a system image cannot be found.
Where is the OS that is in the hidden partition [from factory] that can be used to get back to factory settings???
that can be used to reset up win 8 with all the acer software??

I managed to make the repair cd and a copy of the drivers and applications of the acer software but there was no option to create the recovery dvd's as mentioned earlier.

Is there a way to get back to the factory state without sending the pc back to acer??

And now it also wants a key that I don't have,as I now have win 8 installed from a win 8 pro dvd

thanks in advance

Hoping for some help (Superfly?) with a similar issue, sorry if i'm threadjacking, can move it if needed. Thinkpad W540 purchased last summer, shipped with Windows 8 Pro but i do not have an email or car with the license key. I added on media center which required a separate key which I have. Earlier this year i kept getting the upgrade to 8.1 message and i finally gave in to end the annoyance. It went fine though i had to recreate various settings and such. About a month later, i started to get the activation notifications. I spoke with MSFT to said i was not on a Windows 8.1 Pro retail license (thanks to their pushed upgrade) instead of my OEM which i suppose makes sense. None of the license keys i had work for activation. Trying to make it go away by throwing money at it instead of time, i bought licenses of Windows 8 Pro, Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows 8.1 Pro Pack. None of them worked... So now I don't know what to do which has lead me to this thread. See below for a diagnostic tool report. Any ideas on what i can/should do? I'm hopeful to find a license key and/or hot fix to make this go away as i really do not want to have to do a clean install of Windows. Thanks!

A:Win8 To Win8.1 upgrade gone wrong

Hi and welcome to EF.

Seems you have tried a few key installs that failed ( currently you have the correct key installed which is a full WMC key that should not rely on a base qualifing Pro licence)
Anyway, the licencing store got corrupted - although there are no specific corrupted files as such, it may be prudent to run command prompt - admin:
sfc /scannow

Then try to activate with:

Hi all,
 
We have to reinstall Windows 8.1 several times a week, and on older PC's we find ourselves installing Win8 (original version), then doing tons of updates before getting to the stage where we can download and install Windows 8.1.  We have tried using the 8.1 disk, however it doesn't pickup the Win 8 licence number embedded in the laptop or rejects the the original Win8 OEM licence number.
 
This is costing us loads of time and downloads.
 
Does anyone know a work-around for this?

Last Fall I bought my wife a Dell All In One with Win8 installed. I seldom, if ever use it for I am sticking with 7 for now. She has Live Mail, Firefox installed and that is about it. No apps other than those that came with the machine.

Is it worth while upgrading to 8.1 and then 8.1Update?

If so, what is the simplest way to go about it?. Not necessarily the cheapest but the easiest.

Thank you very much.

A:Upgrade from Win8 to Win8.1Update

To upgrade from 8.0 you have to do it through the Microsoft store. When you do the upgrade from the Store to 8.1, you automatically will get 8.1 update 1. I just did the upgrade about 10 days ago and discovered this when i did the upgrade.

I have installed a driver from Wells Fargo for a check scanner. This driver installs a service that connects the scanner to a Wells Fargo's server.  For some reason it bypasses the proxy settings in IE.  Is there a way to either force this
particular service through the proxy or to globally set all network traffic to be sent through the proxy.  Keep in mind that the proxy server is not located on our local network but is remote so I can't set the Default gateway to the proxy. And I

Hi

I was wondering if there was a program or IE addon that changes your proxy. I have one that is a drop down menu (is a IE toolbar) but I have to add proxy's to it manually. Is there a program/toolbar that has a list already set inside the program or one that reads a text document (So I can paste the list of proxies in, not enter each one in manually).

Thanks
