Can the request length be more then 2088?

Discussion in 'ASP General' started by Konstantin Mironov, Aug 1, 2003.

  1. Hi!

    We have web site on IIS 5.0 for sending purchase-orders to database on MS
    SQL through ASP and ADO. The purchase-order is being sending to .asp script
    as web request, but the script recieves only the first 2088 characters of
    request. Is it possible to increase this parameter somehow, or to set it
    unlimited? Does the IE limit the request length, or IIS? Thanks.

    See here http://www.aspfaq.com/2222. Perhaps you should be using the post
    method instead of get anyway. It sounds from your brief description that if
    I entered your url and kept refreshing, each refresh would be a
    purchase-order. Eegs!

    No.

    IIRC, it's IIS that imposes the limit, which varies depending on the
    version of IIS - on some versions it's as low as 1024(-ish).

    TO get around this, submit your data using the POST method
    instead of GET. This passes the data in Request.Form, which has
    a much bigger capapcity.

    HTH,
