So at my house we are moving rooms around... and end up digging my (second, threw out the first :P) PC of mine.

P100, 16MB RAM, 1GB HDD, Windows 95.

Now for some crazy reason (I don't know why... most probably boredom) I think I might try and make a server out of it :o Will try using it as a basic HTTP + FTP server, but will most likely use it as a print server, and somewhere to dump some of my copies of Windows :P

Am upgrading it to an 8GB HDD and NT4 WS. RAM will hopefully be upgraded at a later date...

...so am I crazy to do this? :P

Depends on the server app you use. Some may not even run on W95.

Sounds like a great idea :D But why not go with the server version of Windows NT 4.0?

Not really, the only "advantage" would be that it comes with IIS :/, stick with NT4 Workstation and Abyss

And the fact it allows more concurrent (= simultaneous) connections AFAIK.

Empireum's talking about connections to your server.

Ah OK.
I think I'll just stick with NT4 WS as I doubt the server will be hammered with connections (or that it would be able to handle heaps :P)

IIRC, the limit is 10 incoming connections. They did it to kill the Netscape web server (Want more than 10 incoming connections? Get NT server. Oh, IIS comes bundled. Why use Netscape?).

I always thought the connection limit is for IIS not for the OS like it is in XP Home?

It applies to the OS, I think. There's also a NT 4.0 Workstation Developer Edition in which that limit doesn't exist AFAIK. But I've never seen the latter, if I'm not mistaken, KenOath has it.

Yes, they are.
Get TweakNt.exe and convert your Windows WKS to SVR :)

If you don't mind my asking, aside from the connection limit, what's different between it and the regular version? (bundled developer tools and SDKs, extended debugging, built-in kernel symbol tables?)

BTW it's nice to see you back.

I would also add some more memory. The more memory the more the server can handle. And yes by all means nt4 "server" edition if you want full functionality of IIS

When comparing it's size to the various different CD's of NT 4.0 I have
here, I find it to be the exact same size to the byte, with the same
file & folder count as the one supplied with the 2001 whistler kit,
so I'd be surprised if it were any different...
Never really made the effort to install it & find out though...
The entire package comes with the full retail literature & COA...
Just has the SDE stickers on the box & CD, & says
"Promotional Sample - Not for resale" on the box...

There are no limits on the server edition. Anyhow, doesn't the limit only affect IIS and not the OS as a whole?
