Setting up II7 Remote Administration

The article, Remote Administration of IIS 7: Install, Configure, Connect by Dave Lawlor is a great write up of how to get your Windows 2008 server setup to allow remote administration of the IIS 7 web server. It allowed me to get things setup very quickly on my sandbox server.

ASP.NET Mobile Definition File

In my current project, we are considering creating a mobile page (geared towards the Blackberry) that a set of users can access to validate/actualize some data that the system is tracking for them. I started doing a little research on how to correctly detect that the users are on a mobile device and render the pages. In the course of this research, I came across this hot off the presses blog from Scott Hanselman, Mix: Mobile Web Sites with ASP.NET MVC and the Mobile Browser Definition File. Scott details the cool new Mobile Browser Definition File that has just been released by Microsoft out on CodePlex. if you doing any mobile device development for ASP.NET websites, this is something that you should definitely check out.
