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 to manage.

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.

Standard mailing lists net-etiquette rules MUST be followed on this list. The accent is put on the following points:

  1. All administrative messages (subscription, unsubscription, asking or help or information, complaints about persons not following the courtesy rules....) are not to be send to list, but only to the list administrator (
  2. Off topic mailings or discussions are strictly prohibited. Such should held privately between subscribers. Inquire ListOwner, to obtain permission for posting announces or any messages, which may be off-topic.
  3. Any Messages which do not represent public interest must be mailed privately between list subscribers. Most common example of such is a courtesy to replying persons, a "Thanks" message.
  4. If you can, a day or two after posting your question, please SUMMARIZE your question with results and people that contributed. This will make things easier for people to understand and easier to save messages.
  5. MINIMIZE QUOTING. When replying or forwarding messages to the list, take few seconds to delete forwarded headers, signatures, banners. Delete unrelevant text and replace it with "...".
  6. All mails are to be stated in English.
  7. This list is monitored by volunteers, who ensure the traffic is concise and relevant. The offenders will be privately warned, and could be denied access to the list after few warnings. Please be tolerant to people who spend their private time to make our list better.
