Accessing .Net web application from UNIX

P: n/a
Hi, being a Windows developer and not having anything to do with
UNIX/Solaris, I have a few questions about accessing .Net Web
Applications from such environments.

If a client has a UNIX/Solaris environment, is it possible to put a
Windows 2000 box on the network which hosts a .Net web application and
access it from other UNIX machines on the network (via Netscape or
whatever)?
Is this as straight forward as plugging a network cable in to the back
of a windows box and directing any machines Browser on the network to
the web site on the win machine?

What issues would we face? Any handy web sites to help me through
this?!

Cheers,

Tony.

Sure, you just need to configure the TCP/IP settings so that the
machines can see each other (nothing out of the ordinary). You won't
be able to take advantage of Windows-specific IIS features, but if you
keep it simple (Netscape's not so hot when it comes to HTML), you
shouldn't have any problems.
