Hi,

Can I make ASP.NET work on a non Microsoft web server (IIS)?
If yes, what are the key points for installation and development?
(assuming the hardware would be Intel and the OS would be Microsoft Windows)

Thanks

I believe that it cannot be used with a non-Microsoft web server. Microsoft state ' To deploy ASP.NET Web applications to a production server, you must be sure that Internet Information Services (IIS) is installed and running on that server before you install the .NET Framework. '

Mind you, I think it is nothing more than an ISAPI module so if you have a web server that  can accept ISAPI modules and you are willing to set it up all manually then it might be possible.

But I'm unable to see any comment when I log in.

Please help!

I'm thinking you will need more than just a web server with a ISAPI module, since you have to have the .NET framework installed on the web server in order for the pages to be processed correctly, and I'm not aware of .NET framework being released for any other system (besides MS).

He did say that the OS would be windows - although it would have to be NT4.o/2000/XP Pro/2003.

Hi,

Thanks for your comments. I did a bit of peeking around meanwhile and found some interesting links:

And finally...

Sorry... I will close this question without accepting any answers :(

Yeah releasing .net framework to work with Linux?

Expect to pay for the .net framework then. Do you think Microsoft would give out .net framework and to install on a free OS? I think not!

For now and probably for a long time I would stick with Windows to run .net framework and IIS for your hosting needs.

My opinion.
