HcNoCompressionForRange Metabase Property (IIS 6.0)
The HcNoCompressionForRange property specifies how IIS handles HTTP Range requests. The HTTP 1.1 Request for Comment, RFC 2068, is ambiguous about whether Range requests apply to the compressed or uncompressed version of a file. Some browsers could be unprepared for compressed Range responses. As a result, IIS, by default, does not send compressed responses to Range requests, to avoid problems with browser misbehavior.
You can configure this property at the following locations in the IIS metabase.
For general code examples, see Code Examples to Configure Metabase Properties.
