ASPX Extensions on Linux

Yes the title will make you laugh, however; does anybody know of aspx extensions for a cobalt RAQ4 server?
Just a location or company name will do but i have searched far and wide for this, but to no avail!

I have developed a bunch of web applications on my windows box with aspx installed but now need to put them on my web server.
(And obviously the ASP extensions wouldn't work) so i didn't even try it.

I have been trying to convert the aspx code to normal vbscript for asp but it's way too much to go through with my dead-line.

Any thoughts??

Thanx in advance

No problem!  The mono project has ported the ASP.NET platform over to Linux!!

You can now run ASP.NET on Linux!
is this good for VB.NET as well...? I didn't see VB mentioned there... only C#
The Mono project is working on the VB part. According to them,
"Anirban and Rafael continues to work on the VB.NET compiler grammar, and Dennis Hayes contributed to the continued effort to port the VB.NET runtime from Java to C#. "

But if you're using pre-compiled binaries, it shouldn't matter what language you programmed them in.  This only applies to aspx pages which have to compiled on the fly.  If you have DLLs, they should already be ready to execute by the CLR.

THanx A WHOLE LOT!!! i'll be sure to wait for the vb part of the mono project....

And i assume that the redhat binaries will work on my cobalt server...
I don't know, you'll have to download them and give it a shot.
Although MONO is fast becoming popular in the Linux/ UNIX community to run ASP.NET pages. I would suggest you wait for it a little bit to get it stable. I have experience trying to compile some pages written in Visual Studio.NET. Although the porting process was relatively easy, you will need change your code a bit to get it 100% functional and stable.

I wouldn't recommand running it as production or mission-critical app.
