IIS in Vista Ultimate - Is it as good as I hope?

Posted: 02-23-2009, 10:30 PM
My old server running Win 2003 fried recently and I can't afford to get new
hardware right now.

I will be running a PC with Vista Ultimate. I noticed that it has IIS
services like FTP and a web server?
IS THIS TRUE??? I ***hope*** so. I used to run a simple web server with
WinXPPro.


Does anyone here have experience with the builtin web services, and it is
easy to get set up?
I just don't have a lot of time to mess around with it. Either it works, or
it doesn't .
I just want a simple web server and possibly a FTP server running.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi
I do not understand well your question. Windows 2003 is a server OS. IIS is
a web server application.So what the relation is in your question.
In any case, IIS is a very good Web server and FTP combo application. It is
not hard to learn but since it is an elaborate and very capable application
it takes time to learn. In order to install it you have to insert the
original CD, drill t5o Control Panel Add Remove Programs, choose Windows
Component6s add check IIS.
