Updated: August 22, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1
After you have deployed the ASP.NET application to the Web server, you are ready to enable client access to the ASP.NET applications. For a period of time that meets your business needs, monitor the client traffic to ensure that clients are successfully accessing the ASP.NET applications on your Web server and that the clients are experiencing expected response times.
Enable client access to the ASP.NET applications on the Web server by completing the following steps:
Create the appropriate Domain Name System (DNS) entries for the ASP.NET applications running on the Web server.
For more information about how to create DNS entries for your applications, see "Managing resource records" in Help and Support Center for Windows Server 2003.
Monitor client traffic to determine whether clients are successfully accessing the ASP.NET applications.
For more information about how to monitor client traffic to ASP.NET applications on the Web server, see Monitor Active Web and FTP Connections.
Establish a monitoring period, such as a few hours or a day, to confirm that clients are accessing the ASP.NET applications on the Web server and that they are experiencing response times and application responses that meet or exceed your requirements.
