Question about HttpRequestValidationException's IIS


I have an question about HttpRequestValidationException warnings when using IIS.

One of the methods of getting rid of these errors is by setting the requestValidationMode to 2.0 in the web.config located in the %ProgramFiles%\QlikView\Server\QlikViewClients\QlikViewAjax.

By doing this, requestValidationMode will be set to ASP 2.0 mode, and therefore removing all request validation.

So my questions are:

  1. How will the Request validation be handled if we turn it off?
  2. Does the QlikView server has its own request validation?
  3. Are there any other ways of making sure that those random generated strings (mainly in the stamp= section) in the URL wont contain characters that are blocked by the request validation mode?
