Chapter 5.1. Overview of Managing Files ... > Internet Information Server

Internet Information Server

Windows 2000, like Windows NT 4.0 before it, has a Web server built in. This provides a little more than the capability to build Web sites—it can manage and troubleshoot Windows 2000. Windows 2000's network places allow shortcuts to Web servers to be created, and from these files can be copied to and from Web servers that support the necessary extensions. In addition, printer information can be found through a Web interface (see Figure 5.1.3. By pointing a browser at http://server/printers, it is possible to find which printers are connected to the server and what is in their queues, to make a standard connection (the same connection that would be made through the Control Panel Printers folder) without leaving the browser. It is also possible to deliver print jobs to the printer using the HTTP protocol.

Figure 5.1.3. Windows 2000 provides a web interface to printing.
