NT4 Peer Web Service...

...what is it?
We are setting up a machine with a very specialized software (analysing output from a mass spectrometer). The instructions say that it must run on an NT4 box, and that it needs "Web Peer Service" to be active. The representative from the software makers did the install and enabled IIS, without any patching... Naturally, disaster was soon a fact. So:
What is "Web Peer Service"? Is it part of Wrkstn or Server package? What does it do? How does it compare to IIS, vulnerability-wise?

I'd appreciate a short tutorial or a link to some useful info.

Thank you!

Hi Rid,

IIS 4.0 is for Winnt Server based Webserver where as Peer Webservice is for NT Workstation or Win9x clients.

Microsoft provides a Windows 95/98 and Windows NT Workstation version of its Internet Information Server (Web Server) as Peer Web Service in Windows NT and Personal Web Server in Windows 95/98 -- PWS. The basic Web Server software

For a detailed tutorial  on Peer Web Service look at the following URL.

All the best
