1 IIS web server to host multiple students web pages (located on a Unix Server)

Greetings,

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
page.

for example:

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
NFS-Server->USERNAME/iiswww directory.


Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Am I on the wrong newsgroup?

Thanks.

Looks kinda old, talks about NT no mention of 2003 Server. I will try
the freeware version.

Thanks
Paul
