    IIS software (IIS ASP.NET)

    I have been hearing alot about ASP.NET and figure i'd start looking into it. I have a workstation at home only and What do I need to load and get IIS working on my computer? I wanted to load the Evaluation 6 kit that MS has out there as I can't afford a copy of the software.

    thanks

    It depends on what OS your workstation at home is running. If you Windows XP Pro or Windows 2000 or Windows NT, then IIS can be installed - see the directions on the Microsoft Web site. After that you can load and play with ASP.NET.

    I started with Help at the workstation, did a search for IIS, and found this:

    <big>Installing IIS</big>

    You can install IIS, add optional components, or remove optional components for IIS by using the Add/Remove Programs dialog box in Control Panel. IIS requires that you install certain software on the computer prior to installation. Review the IIS Software Checklist below before installing IIS.

    IIS Software Checklist
    Before you install IIS, you need to install the Windows TCP/IP Protocol and Connectivity Utilities.

    The following optional components are recommended:<UL><LI>The Domain Name System (DNS) service installed on a computer in your intranet. If your intranet is small, you can use Hosts or Lmhosts files on all computers in your network. This step is optional, but it allows users to use friendly text names instead of IP addresses. On the Internet, Web sites typically use DNS. If you register a domain name for your site, users can type your site's domain name in a browser to contact your site.
    <LI>For security purposes, Microsoft recommends that you format all IIS drives with NTFS.
    <LI>Microsoft FrontPage to create and edit HTML pages for your Web site. FrontPage is a WYSIWYG editor that provides a friendly, graphical interface for tasks such as inserting tables, graphics, and scripts.
    <LI>Microsoft Visual InterDev to create and develop interactive Web applications.[/list]For more information on Windows TCP/IP Protocol and Connectivity Utilities, DNS, or NTFS security, see your Windows XP Professional online documentation.

    IIS Installation
    During installation, IIS installs optional components like Common Files, Documentation, and the Internet Information Services snap-in. You can choose not to install the optional components; however, deselecting specific components can decrease IIS functionality or disable IIS services. If you are unfamiliar with the optional components and how they affect IIS, install IIS with the default settings. After you install IIS, you can view Installing IIS Optional Components in the IIS online documentation for more information.

    To install IIS, add optional components, or remove optional components
    1. <LI>Click Start, click Control Panel, and click Add or Remove Programs.
      <LI>Click Add/Remove Windows Components. The Windows Components Wizard appears.
      <LI>Follow the on-screen instructions to install, remove, or add components to IIS.
    Notes<UL><LI>If you upgrade from a Windows NT 4.0 Workstation that has IIS installed to Windows XP Professional, IIS is installed by default. If IIS was not installed on the Windows NT 4.0 Workstation, you will need to install IIS manually.
    <LI>Personal Web Server is not available on Windows XP Professional. If you upgrade from a Windows home or personal product, you must install IIS for similar Web server functionality.
    <LI>For more information on IIS, refer to the IIS online documentation by typing http://localhost/iisHelp/ in your browser address bar, and pressing ENTER.[/list]
