How to setup a .NET core HTTP Proxy in IIS


Need help to configure .NET Core HTTP proxy application on IIS on Windows 10.

I did build an proxy app to help me inject the SOAP headers before passing the request to the Final WS endpoint.

I had build this proxy because the client wont have a capability to send on headers on the request

I am mimicking the code that was shared by Andrea Chiarelli in the following link

Auth0 .NET Core Proxy

When I run the application locally on VS Code Everything works well

But soon I deployed to IIS server sing VS 2017. I ran into a problem


    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <add name="aspNetCore" path="*" verb="*" modules="AspNetCoreModule" resourceType="Unspecified" />
    <aspNetCore processPath="dotnet" arguments=".\EMCIProxy.dll" stdoutLogEnabled="false" stdoutLogFile=".\logs\stdout" />

I am getting a strange response that I cannot access the specific URL resource

HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error The requested page cannot be accessed because the related configuration data for the page is invalid. Detailed Error Information: Module IIS Web Core Notification Unknown Handler Not yet determined Error Code 0x8007000d Config Error

Config File \?\C:\inetpub\EMXI_Proxy\web.config Requested URL http://localhost:8085/ Physical Path

Logon Method Not yet determined Logon User Not yet determined

Config Source: -1: 0:

I am trying to access the URL http://XYZ123:8085/services/SearchClient which should be routed to https://testxyz:7443/EMXI/services"

Just want to mention I exactly have one method public async Task Invoke(HttpContext context) similar to the one on the example provided in the above URL

Any points of advice/suggestions welcome. I am trying to leave it very generic as much as possible.

I just figured out that ASP Windows Hosting Module was not installed on my machine. Just want to point to another stack question, where I found the solution
