Web applications, client restrictions and server requirements

I am looking for what the server requirements and client restrictions will be for applications run from a web server using web forms. (I have not upgraded yet, am still using VB 6 Professional Ediiton).

For example, in VB 6 you have either DHTML or IIS internet applications. DHTML runs on the client, so I presume it requires low security restrictions on the client because of downloading activeX documents (applications)? IIS which runs on the Server has no restrictions for the client, but will not take activeX documents or forms, hence no standard controls.

In VB.Net however, I notice web forms can have a data grid, which will help fullfil my needs. But do web forms run more as a DHTML restricted client environment or more as an "accessible by all" IIS environment?

WebForms can run on anybrowser, but really you need IE 5.5+, NS6+ or Mozilla
for things to work. Also a few things here and there only work in IE, but you
can test for them and work around them. They certainly arent the majority,
but it happens.

WebForms does not use ActiveX.

You do need IIS on you development machine unless you us WebMatrix.

You have your terms confused. What do you mean by an "IIS environment"?
