    I'm not a Linux user. I just thought that most distributions came with Apache or something similar. I should have said 'distros' instead of 'kernels' though.

    Any computer that is hosting a resource others are using is considered a server. Even your workstation with Windows 9x, 2K, XP, Linux, etc with a shared folder is considered a server because it's serving files to others.

    I was running Apache 2.0.44 in RedHat 8.0 and it ran great. How does Apache run in Windows in Comparison to Linux? (If you happen to know, I havent installed it on Windows yet)

    I've never run it under Linux so have no idea. It seems to run okay on my XP system. There have been a number of issues.

    2.0.45 was released a month or so back which closes a couple of security holes. In the Apache community, there are those that maintain the last 1.x.xx can't remember which, is better, but 1) there are always people like that, 2) that version does not run under Windows as a service, it has to be manually started in a console.

    There is also a known error that was "fixed" in version 2, however...

    >>>
    [Sat May 10 21:21:13 2003] [warn] (OS 64)The specified network name is no longer available. : winnt_accept: Asynchronous AcceptEx failed.
    <<<

    ... there is the error in my error log from Saturday! It doesn't happen often, when it does, the GET or HEAD command that was coming in at the time 404's.

    There are some other minor irritations, but having tried a few http servers, I would have to say this is the best.

    Not necessarily, as I said earlier, any machine hosting resources being used by others is considered a server....it's serving others it's resources.

    It's not a server if you are doing a client to client transfer. Both ends are considered a client then.
