No problem here at all; just use the Peer service that came along with Warp and you're able to share disk and printer resources. If you want to use a more server enviroment; I would go for either WSFeB or Novell. More stable and not so resource hungry as NiceTry But for the most homeusers and SOHO-users a pure plain installation with Warp 4 would cover their needs!

Yepp, there is no problem at all. Apache is available for most OS. I'm running a Apache installation on my fileserver (WSFeB) for local test and development. And for the fun try make a jump to http://195.43.229.158 and you will find Swedish OS2 User Groups new server (it's not in production mode yet) with WSFeB and Apache. Works very well. OS2 World.Com runs on a Linux based installations, but then again I'm running around 30 others sites on that server without any problem. I actually never used pure OS2 installation with Apache in web production. But, when the OS2 UG server is up and running with some more script I will try to test and compare how well OS2 and Linux run perl and php scripts or rather how much the CPU loads differs betwen the OS.

I also have WSFeB and Warp 4 at home. I looked around and it looks like Lotus Domino WebServer does support XML ans ASP scripting to a certain degree; however, I would like to know if anyone has tried it? I am also going to post this in the WWW forum.

This is my first post and will be coming here more.

Great resource.

Can't say if Lotus Domino WebServer support XML or ASP, but only problem I then think is that You get thoose crazy long urls! But, agree Domino is actually a great piece of software; Lotus manage to make something there. Would be nice if there was a tool that could translate the url the Domino creates; is there one?

The only time I've seen the long URLs, such as filename.asp?=... is the way in which the page is executed, it is a GET rather than a POST. This is similar to the CGI technology, take a look at the URL for this message thread, especially when you reply.

I was trying to also get the WebSphere to get to work on my box at home, specifying the servername:9090 port to get it to run and it made my box hang. I still need to play.
