    Hi,
        We were able to upload big file sizes by setting

    <security><requestFiltering><requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="419440400"/></requestFiltering></security>

    this in Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource.axd .
    I would like to know whether its safe to do this, Is there any possibility of DOS attacks, or is there a safer way to do this?

    Thanks,
    Deepak M

    Hello Deepak,

    This is the standard mechanism for uploading large files within IIS, so by assumption it is considered safe. There is a way to avoid setting large value to maxallowedfilesize however, the way around is to use RadAsyncUpload and its Silverlight module, which will chunkenize the file to be uploaded into many chunks, each of which 2 mb large. Thus way it can bypass the IIS integrated request size limitations.
