Understanding the Personal Web Server and the Personal Web Manager

The versions of IIS discussed in this chapter are not intended for supporting large Webs that are accessed by many people (they can sustain only 10 simultaneous connections). Furthermore, they lack the various security features of the full version of IIS. They are therefore best suited to a development environment—or, at most, to a small intranet in which security is not a major consideration. However, they support Active Server Pages (ASP), so you can create and test such pages with them if necessary.

To distinguish these versions of IIS from the full-featured version, Microsoft refers to them as a Personal Web Server or occasionally, in the case of NT4 Workstation, Peer Web Services . Windows 2000 Professional does not make this NT4-type distinction in nomenclature, so for clarity, the rest of this chapter will use Personal Web Server (PWS) to refer to these limited versions of IIS.
