Follow the steps given below to setup IIS to deliver WAP content.

The following are the mime types and the file extensions used for WAP.

MIME Content Extensions and Types

WML Source .wml text/vnd.wap.wml
Wireless Bitmap .wbmp image/vnd.wap.wbmp
WML Script Source .wmls text/vnd.wap.wmls
Compiled WML .wmlc application/vnd.wap.wmlc
Compiled WML Script .wmlsc application/vnd.wap.wmlscriptc
WML Script .wsc text/vnd.wap.wmlscript
WML Script .wmlscript text/vnd.wap.wmlscript

Stage 1 - Configure the Script mappings so we can use ASP with WAP.

  1. Open up Internet Information Server Manager. Right-click on your Web server, listed on the left. Drop down to Properties.



  2. Go to the Home Directory tab and click the configuration button.


  3. This dialog box lists all the mappings for file extensions to ISAPI applications. We will map the WAP file extensions to the ASP ISAPI application. Click on the Add button


  4. We need to map to the ASP.DLL which is in the \winnt\system32\inetsrv folder. We also specify the name of the extension, in this case .WML and the verbs that this will respond to.


  5. Add the following extensions WMLS, WSC, WMLSC and WMLSCRIPT like we did in step 4 (remember we need to include the "." for the extension in step 4)

Stage 2 - Configure the MIME types for WAP.

  1. Open up Internet Information Server Manager. Right-click on your Web server, listed on the left. Drop down to Properties.


  2. Select the HTTP Headers Tab and click the the File Types button.


  3. We now must select the New Type button to add our new mime types to IIS.


  4. Enter the extension and the MIME types for all of the following.

    MIME Content Extensions and Types

    WML Source .wml text/vnd.wap.wml
    Wireless Bitmap .wbmp image/vnd.wap.wbmp
    WML Script Source .wmls text/vnd.wap.wmls
    Compiled WML .wmlc application/vnd.wap.wmlc
    Compiled WML Script .wmlsc application/vnd.wap.wmlscriptc
    WML Script .wsc text/vnd.wap.wmlscript
    WML Script .wmlscript text/vnd.wap.wmlscript


    After all of the mime types are added you will end up with a list like this.

     

You should now be able to deliver content to WAP enabled devices like Mobile Phone and PDA's.
