And also like IIS, Purveyor has put together its monitoring by augmenting NT’s Performance Monitor tool. There are over a dozen different parameters you can view, including connections per second, total bytes received, files sent, and CGI requests. Purveyor has different parameters than IIS, although in about the same number. WebSite has far fewer and FastTrack has none, by the way. However, given the level of interest by developers, we expect to see several products that will make use of these interfaces soon.
WebSite’s manual also has a small chapter on its Server Side Include support, along with a few examples on how to produce a page counter application. Any file can contain them, unlike Purveyor which requires special .HTP suffix for the server to recognize them. WebSite’s SSI documentation It isn’t as thorough as SiteBuilder’s however — a small flaw in an otherwise excellent book. WebSite includes support for several of its own programming interfaces, including the ability to write DOS batch files and Visual Basic programs as scripts along with the standard perl scripts. There are some other limitations with IIS, especially when it comes to supporting hosting multiple domains on a single NT Web server. First of all, you’ll have to either install a separate network card for each IP address, or be familiar with how to edit NT’s registry to get around this restriction. The latter method isn’t documented or supported by Microsoft.
In addition to running a storage report, you can use PowerShell to scan a volume or folder for specific file types. For example, the script below scans the ‘accounts’ folder for MP3 audio files.

- You can also sell items to vendors if you have no use for them or just need gold.
- There is a magic spell that allows you to heal yourself but you can also drink potions or eat the food you find or buy in the world.
- Some potions will immediately grant one of your attributes experience and drinking elixirs will permanently increase your health or mana.
- Traders and shops will offer various items to buy including clothing which is basically armor, weapons, food, and gifts that you may want to give to people.
- Although, I found navigating the menus to be TeamViewer a bit clunky.
Purveyor’s support for Server-Side Includes is poor compared to either WebSite or SiteBuilder, and if you plan on using them you need to rename your files with .HTP extensions. If you plan on doing a great of SSI programming, you might want to look at SiteBuilder instead — it has far better documentation and support of this feature.
Documentation of the product is sub-par and is the product’s weakest area. However, to Process’ credit, there is a separate manual entitled “Guide to Server Security” which covers how Purveyor handles access of its files that should be mandatory reading. Purveyor’s controls and dialog boxes for this important function are a bit cluttered and not as easy to understand as either IIS or WebSite. Purveyor has had a product on NT longer than anyone and has established a good middle ground between having a good selection of features but taking somewhat longer to setup and use than the other servers. It is not as easy to use as WebSite, and somewhat slower in our tests. This performance gap between Purveyor and WebSite widens as more machines connect to the same server.
