If you encounter further difficulties with other IIS functionality while URLScan is running, set EnableLogging=1 in the [Options] section of Urlscan.ini and then restart IIS. If any errors occur, check the last entries in the Urlscan.log file for information about what requests are being rejected.
URLScan protects your server from attacks by turning off functionality that is not being used by the server. The default settings in the Urlscan.ini file, included in the downloadable file, assume that the server is serving only Active Server Pages (ASP) and static content, such as Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) pages and images. It also assumes that you are not using the following technologies:
CGI (.exe) executables
Internet or HTTP-based printing
Server Side Includes (SSI)
If you need to use any of these technologies, you will need to change the Urlscan.ini file accordingly.

Specifying an AlternateServerName prevents FrontPage from connecting or publishing, even if it is configured to return the actual Web server name.
Setting RemoveServerHeader=1 also prevents FrontPage from connecting or publishing.
For the CGI-based FrontPage Hit Counter Web component to function, you need to enable the use of files with the .exe extension in the Urlscan.ini file. Because this allows other CGI applications to execute as well, the administrator should consider using an ISAPI or ASP-based hit counter. For additional information about using an ASP-based hit counter with FrontPage, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

To allow requests for files with the .exe extension, set one of the following configurations:
If you set UseAllowExtensions=0, then comment out or remove .exe from the [DenyExtensions] section of the Urlscan.ini file.
If you set UseAllowExtensions=1, then add .exe to the [AllowExtensions] section of the Urlscan.ini file.
Setting AllowLateScanning=1 loads URLScan as a low priority filter. This allows URLScan to be loaded below the FrontPage down-level compatability filter, Fpexedll.dll.
