Web App Without IIS

Hi, I am trying to develop an ASP.NET application. Is it possible to develop
and do some testing on a PC that is not running IIS? For security reasons
the PCs running IIS are limited.

Hello David,

If you are running vs2005, vs2005 express or Visual Web Developer 2005 or
ASP.Net Web Matrix Project.

this can be only be achieved using one of the 2005 versions , if you are
using 2003 you need have IIS installed. now it's very easy to run IIS in
your local machine in a secure way. all you have to do is allow connection
to port 80 only from the local machine

Bart DeSmet has created a very elegant solution that uses the open-source
Cassini WebServer. You can find his article here:

Thank you. Are you suggesting to do this by setting the firewall or is there
a way to set IIS alone. Is there a local connection only setting for IIS?

David,
there is a simple free ASP.NET web server based on MS Cassini, but
extended to be a real thing, with application managemented UI and lots
of other features. I am pretty sure this should be a solution to your
problem. You can debug your ASP.NET with it and even ship it with your
application if your customers don't have IIS on their boxes.
