The Web.config configuration file is an XML file that must be configured to point to your Responder database. You may edit the file by opening it in an XML application (such as XML Spy) or by opening it in a simple text editing program (such as Notepad). Web.config is installed in: C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Responder\Web.config.
In the Web.config file, look for specific XML tags and then edit the properties contained within those tags.
Look for the <connectionStrings> tag. The <add> tag represents the connection information for your Responder database. You can have multiple <add> tags. The default connections are enclosed in comments, and you need to remove the comment tags if you are only going to update the example connection strings and use the updates. Below is a sample:
<connectionStrings> <add name="configuration" connectionString="Data Source=rice.minerville;User ID=userID;Password=password" providerName="System.Data.OracleClient"/> </connectionStrings>
Enter the connection information for your Responder database.
Name: Enter a unique name for your connection information. This name is referenced in the next section (Miner.com).
connectionString: Enter the connection string information for your Responder database.
Look for the <miner.com> tag. In this section you will set the globalConnection to the Name value of one of the connection strings set up in the previous section. For example:
<miner.com> <globalConnection globalConnectionStringName="configuration"></globalConnection>
