Post your question to a community of 469,926 developers. It's quick & easy.

just getting started.

Hi I am trying to install vs.net and can install all of it
except the web development section. It seems to require
IIS(internet information server). I am running windows
2000 and do not have IIS on my machine but have a drive
mapped to a server running IIS. I plan on developing aspx
pages to place on this server. Do I have to have IIS
installed on my local machine? Thanks Paul.

if you want to develop web applications or webservices, I would advice to
install IIS on your local machine.I think (in theory) it's possible to use
the remote machine, but I would not advice it.

ok, that is what I was thinking, just trying to get the
ITS group here to install IIS on my local machine.

You know you can do it manually, don't you? :-)

Probably company rules...

Just wondering how to do this manually? I may set up a
personel firewall on my local machine (running windows
2000 so not sure if I can do that) as I think the IT goup
is worried about security.

In the configuration panel choose add/remove programs, in the Windows
components section you can find IIS (Internet Information Services). Install
this BEFORE installing VS.NET.

I do not see how installing IIS on your personal machine can be a security
issue...

Jan,
already tried that but the IT group has the windows 2000
installation disks which it prompts for. Not sure but I
was told with IIS installed on your local machine, the
machine can act like a web server and can be vunerable to
viruses. It is recommended to install a personal
firewall, after installing IIS, trying to work this issue
with the IT group now. Thanks for the response-Paul.

Just to clarify - web matrix uses something called the Cassini web server
available from www.asp.net. Its a free downlod and will allow you to
develop locally.

Is this the same server that is present in the VS.Net Whidbey Visual Web
Designer? Is that just Web Matrix? If so, it's pretty cool.
