I have an interesting problem. We will be setting up a IIS6 server to
host multiple students .net application. Our backend is purely UNIX. The
students data is stored on a Linux file server (Samba & NFS). I do know
with apache we could do www.apachewww.edu/~username and the user web
page was up and running.
We have a few hurdles to jump over with IIS.
1)How to get/allow IIS6 to access the students web .net web pages on the
other (Samba/NFS) server.
- I know you can host sites from UNC mounted directories, but we need to
make available multiple student pages from a single UNC and NFS mount.
It would be nice if we could do something like: www.iiswww.edu/username/
and have that users .net application/html page display the correct user
www.iiswww.edu/bobg would become
II6->NFS Server->/export/home/bobg/iiswww from a backend view point.
2)Maintaining security so users are confined to their own home directory
or that the web server will not stray from the
Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Am I on the wrong newsgroup?
