Commonly requested files and information

  1. General Technical Support Checklist Please provide the information listed in the General Technical Support Checklist

  3. Authentication: If you are running into a permissions-related issue, find out the authentication type used for the web application's virtual directory.

    2. Expand Sites, then Default Web Site in the left pane.
    3. Select the virtual directory for the web application.
    4. Double-click Authentication in the main pane.
    5. Note which types of authentication are enabled.
    6. If anonymous authentication is enabled, right-click on Anonymous Authentication, select Edit, and note the user account displayed.

    3. Any other relevant firewall information.

    1. Get the full text of the error message and the stack trace (from the web browser on the web server if applicable).
    2. Check the Laserfiche web application's Event Viewer logs on the web server for additional error details.
