Default Is this all I need for a simple web server to use ASP.NET software?


This may not necessarily the right place to ask this question, but I really do not know where else I can find other experts to ask this simple but important question for me. See, I am always use VB but only for Windows software, and only now that I am moving toward ASP.NET (somewhat with apprehension, I must add). Now, as I am starting to learn, I need to know if I have all that is needed to start a small web server to test if my ASP.NET program works fine over the internet (I am planning to access MS Access Database with these softwares as well). I have a computer loaded with Windows Server 2003, and IIS installed. Now, somebody told me, if I get a fixed IP connection (as opposed to the standard dynamic IP connection provided by the ISP), I am all set to turn my computer to a simple web server. Is that correct?

Simple question, right? Especially for all of you experts. Will really appreciate help here. Thank you so much.

IndraG,
You really do not need all that just to test you asp.net program unless you are doing something specific. If you are using visual studio 2005 or greater with Windows XP or greater you are good to go. However if you wish to actually run it for others to access it may be a good idea to set up a server if you need it to run all the time. However IIS is built in to all professional versions of Windows you may just need to install it from the control panel. You also need to make sure the correct version of ASP.net is installed on the computer of choice. This is a free download from Microsoft. Again if you are only testing you can do it all on you development machine. As for a static IP, well that is another desicion, again if you need it up all the time for others to test on and use then it is probably a good idea, however you can also use free dynamic DNS services. Also if you plan to use AJAX make sure it is also installed on the server. Hope this helps.

You should check with your ISP to make sure your terms of services allow you to host a web server. You'd also want to look into NOT using MS Access. It will become a headache if the site has a few visitors. Look into SQLite, mySQL, Postgre, SQL Server 2005 Express, etc.
