WINNT-INET - Windows NT on the Internet Mailing List
One of the problems of internet presence for any site was the complexity of
various Services administration. For this Windows NT has unsuspected
advantage over UNIX that only very few processionals know to take the full
advantage of it.
What is needed to normal Internet site operation?
The list of the services that are required or recommended for normal
site functioning is not to short, this is partial list of the services needed:
All of this required UNIX in old time but today almost everything exist also
on NT that in my opinion (and I believe on yours) is much more convenient
- Name Server - DNS (bind on UNIX)
- SMTP Smart Relay - (Sendmail on UNIX)
- Dialing/Routing software/hardware
- Finger/WHOIS/Telnet/HTTPd/NNTP/ListServer/TALKd - is not the full list of not
required but highly recommended software
I've established this mailing list in order to discuss administration problems
for Windows NT in Internet environment and I hope this will help us to make
it easy and large the number of NT sites on Internet.
