:>The Apache server has an API, and you can have it for $0.  And it's
:>one heck of a server with an open development group to boot.

Not that I like NT, but the original question was about NT,
and I don't know if anyone has ported Apache to NT, although
I'm sure it's possible.

:>There are also SLL versions of Apache available.

Wouldn't put too much credence in that.  Yes, there is an SSL
version, I paid the $495 for it, but those *@#$&*@#$% over at
VeriSign will not sign certificates for it.  The sales drone
on the phone said they couldn't do anything with Apache until
someone in charge of marketing at Apache called so they could
work out the marketing details.  The funny thing is that Apacke
is a free implementation WWW server.  It's just a bunch of
great guys that write it in their spare time, there is no marketing
dept.  Anyway, either VeriSign needs to smarten up, or there
needs to be some other signing agency.  I wasn't aware until
all this happened that VeriSign was a part of RSA, Inc.
