: Hi Andrew
: Sorry I've not read your earlier thread but to develop ASP locally
: you'll need either:
: Win98/win2k/winXP running IIS - IIS comes with all of them.  However
: there are certain restrictions, mainly that you can't add third party
: components or use CDO(NTS)


The bit about 3rd party components and about CDONTS is incorrect.

Windows NT 4 (via the NT Option Pack) + Windows 2000 + Windows XP Pro (not
Home) all have access to IIS, including the SMTP server. This enables use of
CDONTS. Windows 95 (PWS is downloadable), Windows98 have PWS (you can run
the Win98 version on ME as well). All of these allow installation of third
party components. You are restricted to 10 concurrent HTTP connections
(which should be fine for development purposes).

Note - you can't run both IIS Webserver and Apache at the same time on port
80 if you only have a single IP address. You will need a minimum of 2 IP
addresses, or run one of the two on a non-standard port.
