The best is to set up a Web server in the environment you have knowledge   
in.
We decided to run our server on Windows NT just because we know  this OS..

I don't think Windows NT is better or worse than Mac or Sparc as a WWW   
server. They are all the same - you write your HTML pages and they are   
loaded irrespective of the server environment.

For your home - that's the same as above. Do you have a leased line to   
your home?
At home most persons are running Windows, so I'll suggest Windows 95 and   
the WebSite server. More info about WebSite can be loaded from   
http://dc3.alisa.com/ (this is Robert Denny's, (the author of WebSite)   
notebook).

Please follow up this if you don't agree ...

Thanks.

Could anyone describe the pros and cons of various systems (operating
system, hardware/software, connections, etc.) for setting up a Web Server   

for home or office.

Is a mac better than windows NT or Sparcstation?  For the office we have
direct access to the internet and we have one Sparcstation 20 and one   
Sparc
5.  We may or may not be able to use those for internet apps.  Should be
purchase another Sparc or buy a mac...windows NT?

For the home what would be best?


Thanks,
