    Just wondering, are IIS windows NT servers ? And vice-versa: is a Windows NT server an IIS ?
    Since i'll have to develop something on ASP on a WindowsNT server, i wanted to know if i could do it the DSN-less way. (since i read it can be done on IIS)

    IIS (Internet Information Server) is a free software package that can be added to Windows NT. I believe you can get a version for your desktop computer and that Windows 2000 comes without.
    As far as getting away from DNS connection, that is a seperate issue. Check this thread to get started http://www.sitepointforums.com/showt...?threadid=9779

    If your host runs NT then it is most likely running IIS. NT Workstation v4 can't run IIS, it runs a version of PWS, but your host will have NT server which does run IIS.
    On Win2k, all versions come with IIS, which is either an optional install when you install windows, or can be set up from the control panel later.

    You can run other servers on Windows NT as well including O'Reilly's Web Server, Netscape (if it is even still available), Apache, Sambar and many others.

    Most hosting companies offer IIS though because it is free, integrated into Windows and easier to configure than Apache.
