WMS external capabilities file

Discussion created by gerlahi61 on Jan 24, 2013
Dear all,

on version 10.0 and before the external capabilities file was put in a directory which had been automatically created (something like C:\inetpub\wwwroot\ArcGIS\Wms on IIS). Now I created manually a similar directory structure where to put these files. Is that the proposed way or is there also a possibility to put them under the GIS Server running on 6080 ?

extract from ArcGIS Help 10.1
The GIS server component exposes your services through HTTP without requiring you to have a separate, dedicated web server such as IIS. However, if you want to harness some of the native security benefits of the web server (such as authentication options), or if you want to host web applications, you can choose to include a web server in your deployment.
