    I've been presented with a project that I've decided to take a stab at.

    To run your own web server, does one have to run Server 2003 web edition, or can this be accomplished with just Server 2003?

    My plan is to get it up and running in VMware first then once I get everything right I'll take it live.

    You can run a web server on XP Pro, as it includes IIS.

    I don't know if you are limited to XP's 10 concurrent connections though. Anyone?

    Oh, to answer your original question you can run it on either version.

    The web version is simply a cut down version optimised for hosting web sites.

    Thanks Simon. I installed IIS on my std server 2003 and I think I see the light now. I do appreciate it.

    I don't think so Simon but IIS on W2K or XP is very much a watered down version in comparison to what you get with the server product.
