Does anyone know about how to run .asp pages under Linux / Apache servers?

Is it feasible?

Does it really work?

What are the available alternatives?

What about the costs?

Thanks a lot for answering to these questions.

    ChiliSoft! ASP is the product you need.  Provided you don't have any custom COM objects and can deal with basic ones typically built in (CDONTS for example), ChiliSOFT should work.

    Well, at this URL address, instead of ChiliSoft I saw:

    . Sun One Active Server Pages 4.0.1 - $495.00  
    . Sun Java System Active Server Pages 4.0 (Upgrade License, Per Server) - $199.00  
    . Sun Java System Active Server Pages 4.0 Media Kit - $20.00

    What of these ones do I really need? Does it run under Linux Fedora Core 3?

    I believe Sun bought ChiliSoft - note the "Chilisoft" in the url I posted (in fact, if you go to you get redirected to the Sun site).  you would likely need
    These two items - the first definitely, the second, not sure, but it's only $20.
    . Sun One Active Server Pages 4.0.1 - $495.00  
    . Sun Java System Active Server Pages 4.0 Media Kit - $20.00

    I can't say for certain (so download the trial) but the requirements as posted on that page are:
        * Solaris 9 and 8 Operating Systems (SPARC® Platform Edition)
        * Linux (x86) Kernel 2.4, GLIBC 2.2.5
        * Red Hat Linux 7.3
        * SuSE Linux 8.0
        * Microsoft Windows NT and 2000

    So I would SUSPECT it works on Fedora Core 3
