Last June Appeon support informed us that HTTPS is not supported with the Appeon Fileservice in any browser in Windows 10.  In fact they indicated HTTPS does not work with the fileservice on other Windows platforms (which we never found to be the case - i.e., it does work).

Suggestion was to use HTTP which is not an option here given the security required on files uploaded and downloaded.

While looking for a solution, to date we've held off users by saying Windows 10 is not supported, but that obviously cannot be a long term position.

Curious what others have done for Appeon Web apps in this regard.

Thanks in advance.

currently, we store files in the database.  use sql server and filestream.

planning on moving file storage to azure blob storage service.


Thanks Mike, so can filestream write and read from the client machine?  And if the web site is HTTPS, would it then encrypt transmission?

filestream - it is a way to organize the blobs in the database server.  Your app doesn't know or care about filestream.   you read/write on the client machine with fileread/write then use updateblob/SELECTBLOB sql statements to update the database.

The downside to this is that your database backups include the blobs - so your backups could be huge.
