ASP.NET State Server (if used)

If your mobile application requires the ASP.NET state server, configure it as follows:

  1. Make sure ASP.NET state service is running on the remote server that will store session state information. This service is installed with ASP.NET and Visual Studio at the following location:

    systemroot\Microsoft.NET\Framework\versionNumber\aspnet_state.exe 
    
  2. In the application's Web.config file, modify the sessionState element as follows:

    1. Set mode to "StateServer".

    2. Set stateConnectionString to this:

      stateConnectionString="tcpip=<computer_name>:42424"
