ipv6 http server for windows
« on: October 18, 2009, 07:06:42 AM »

Group,
I am trying to install apache for v6 , following http://win6.jp/Apache2/index.html
My system is a winxp/sp2 the run time library ( from MS http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=32bc1bee-a3f9-4c13-9c99-220b62a191ee) fails to insert the correct DLL's, after which apache service does not start.

Has anyone observed this problem? or is there any web server listening on v6 which can be used instead of apache?

TIA,
-Sujay

This may not solve your problem, but there us a newer version of Apache (and if I remember correctly, it solved many security issues)

http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi

Do you get an error message when you try to install the runtime library?

Also, IIS does support IPv6, if you wanted to go that route

The MS library install does not throw errors, shows in the add/remove programs installed.
For running IIS I would need to upgrade to Windows Server.

But then I moved to Linux it worked like a breeze. )

Are you running XP Pro or Windows 2000?  Either one of those have IIS support built in.  http://www.webwizguide.com/kb/asp_tutorials/installing_iis_winXP_pro.asp

If you are running XP Home, then no, you can't use IIS
