I want to know if it's possible to set up a windows 7 based internet / web server, (not intranet) using IIS, ASP-Net and AJax.
I want to set up a home server to run a tiny web client app for reading/playing text based games. This server side app I want to run will be provided to me by the guy who made it but in order to run it he says I need: " Windows server with Ajax extensions".
I haven't run a server before through windows. I only have the one machine so I want to use my win 7 and be able to keep and use all my other stuff. From my reading It seems like I can do what i want but I'm not sure.. wanted to confirm it before i get too ahead of myself. I understand it would take installing IIS, then ASP-Net and it's Ajax extensions ( if i understood correctly ) Then install and run my game app, then connect to my game app through the web/browser. Does this sound right and is possible?
If this isn't possible, is there another way to make this work?
