You need either IIS version 5 (comes with Win2K), version 5.1 (comes with WinXP Prof) or version 6, whicih comes with .NET server to support ASP.NET. You also need .NET framework installed and the aspnet_client files in IIS with the correct filters setup. Other than adding a local directory and filters to the IIS master properties, .NET does nothing else with IIS besides handshaking. Once IIS matches the .NET filter with the request, the request is passed over to .NET and it takes care of the rest.

I thought that if you want to program or run .NET applications, you need the .NET framework.
IIS allows you to run ASP, not ASP.NET
Is this not true? Is IIS also needed for .NET?
