This is interesting.
I was wondering why there are two pages for such a simple question and now I find out.
By the way,
We would agree that
1. You have 'broad mind'( not limited like Al).
2. You are great at designing network.
3. There are far better servers than IIS and Apache who performs best in real life instances,
if you can just give one evidence,
if you can just give name of server,
if you can just show us some real life application.
I agree that statstics are not measure of deciding what is best, but if you don't put up even name of what you are talking about it is out of competition for sure.
So dear Network Design expert,
Please do not go away from this post , come back and get guts to reply.I am really willing to know what you are knowing and I am not.
and I strongly belive that Al' post was no way off topic. He can certainly post about other's ppl' answer if its not understood/doubts about it.
and coming to the original problem
I use WinXP and I have downloaded VMWare.
have installed linux on that.
I do developmetn on windows only coz I can't do without EditPlus.
so how do I test my script,
I have bridged the guest Linux to my host Windows, so that Windows can see Linux' Apache server.
I copy my files there on Linux and check it out on Windows while running windows !!
I wonder if you are able to digest this but believe me, when you would see this thing in action, you would be surprised !!!!! it would be pleasant one, i can bet for that.
VMWare is one of the software which keeps me wondering about what a Man can do !!!! A TRUE kick *** software !!!!
