Microsoft has released the latest version of its Web server family, the Personal Web Server (PWS) for Windows 95. Aimed at small businesses, schools and individuals, the PWS is designed for information sharing and Web publishing across Intranets or the Internet.
The Personal Web Server turns a PC running Windows 95 into a low-volume Web server. Integrated into the Windows 95 taskbar and Control Panel, the server software allows users to start and stop HTTP and FTP services at will, administer the server or change general options. The PWS is also complementary to Peer Web Services, included with the Windows NT Workstation operating system version 4.0.
According to Microsoft, it is designed for fast installation and includes an HTML-based administration utility that also supports remote administration. It supports both user-level and local security and can be set up to support NT Challenge/Response encrypted-password transmission.
The PWS supports existing standards such as Common Gateway Interface and includes the open Internet Server API (ISAPI) extension to the Win32 API, which Microsoft claims is up to five times faster than CGI-based applications. This enables users to take advantage of ISAPI scripts and CGI scripts.
The Personal Web Server software is available to download free at (http://www.microsoft.com/ie/download/ieadd.htm).
