SharePoint 2010 & Internet Information Services (IIS) Debugging Timeout

You're in the middle of debugging a SharePoint 2010 project in Visual Studio 2010, say you've been stepping through your code for a couple of minutes trying to isolate a code-level defect and receive the message "The web server process that was being debugged has been terminated by Internet Information Services (IIS)".  Here's a quick way to resolve it for your development environment.

Please note, this should only be used in a development environment and not in production.
  1. Open the IIS MMC snap-in via right-click on Computer -> Manage -> Services and Applications -> IIS Manager.  You can also run it from the command line directly "%systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\iis.msc".
  2. Select your server, then Application Pools.
  3. Select the application pool associated with the web app you are debugging.
  4. Select Advanced Settings under the Edit Application Pool heading.

     5.  On Advanced Settings, change the Ping Enabled setting to False.
