Summary

Today’s Macintosh systems running Mac OS X are Internet-ready and Internet-aware at a level far beyond any other computer system. This chapter explained how to activate Web sharing on your OS X system, bringing new power to the Web servers provided by earlier versions of Mac OS X. Many of the enhanced Web capabilities and support provided in Mac OS X are due to the inclusion of the Apache Web server on OS X systems. This chapter explained some of the capabilities of the Apache Web server, such as password-protected folders, that are easy to create and configure on your OS X system, and concluded by discussing Apple’s iDisk, free storage provided on an Apple Web server for every Mac OS X user that you can mount and access like any other networked storage mechanism.

This chapter and Chapter 12 focused on file sharing and Web access to your system. The next chapter takes the discussion of networking on your Mac OS X system a bit further, by providing more information about the Internet and some of the other protocols and applications available that let you do much more than simply surf Web pages or share files.
