W3C httpd or CERN httpd is a full featured HTTP server which you can find at
However, we are not really maintaining it anymore as Anselm Baird-Smith has
started work on a next generation server. The CERN httpd is very unix specific
and will not run on NT.

The main purpose of the new Mini Server is to show that the Library indeed can
be used for writing servers - also for NT. As you all know, the server is
_not_ full featured, but the latest version that we announced a couple of days
ago can work as a proxy (and possibly as a normal server).
This new server model is very fast and very portable - but again - not
complete, but I am very interested if you would like to have a look at it.
As notmal, you can get the full distribution from
