Microsoft Personal Web Server

By rebootbub ·
I was wondering if anyone knows of the Windos 2000 version of PWS. I found it for NT in the NT option pack, but can't seem to find anything for 2000. I've looked everywhere on Microsoft's website, technet, and msdn. Does anyone have any insights to my dilema?

Windows 2000 (NT) uses Internet Information Server. PWS is normally just for Win95/98/ME, and doesn't have near the flexibility of IIS. IIS 5 should be on your Windows 2000 CD.

Not to be rude, but IIS and PWS server the same function, but they are different applications. Thanks though.

Windows 2000 does not use PWS. It has IIS 5.0
If you upgraded from a operating system that had PWS then IIS should have installed. If not go to control panel and add/remove programs, add/remove windows components and select IIS. Follow the wizard and enjoy.

I realize that there is Internet Information Server (IIS5), but IIS is a for a internet server. I use IIS, but the PWS is different and not as difficult to configure for someone who is new. Just to let you know PWS is avalible for windows NT in the NT option pack.
