      Boy is this a long time since the issue originally came up. But, since others may wonder about this in the future, here is a thought.

      When Windows NT 4.0 originally came out, they provided a poor man's web server called a "Peer Web Services" with the NT 4.0 Workstation software. As I recall, it was limited to 10 users (like NT 4.0 in a peer-to-peer net).

      Microsoft has a Personal Web Site Starter Kit (dated 3/2005) which provides instructions how to... (check out http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms972963(classic).aspx). And there was a Personal Web Server that came out with Windows 95 and 98 (and geared for the 95/98 market). I looked under "Personal Web" in microsoft to locate this info, so happy hunting. I think these will be small enough and easy enough for a local Intranet (internal network).

All I want to do is have our FHC patrons able to view our film inventory on the family history center's computers only. I don't want it available on the Internet. Is it still necessary for me to install IIS?

        Components, Internet Information Services (IIS). Click on "Details"

        It may ask for the XP Install media.

            He wanted to install Inventory Viewer.  It reads the data files from Inventory Manager and makes it usable in a web browser.  I believe it requires IIS as it uses ASP files.
             
            Ronald, I understand that you don't want to have it on the Internet.  But you are placing it on your internal network and it runs the same protocols as the Intranet.  As long as the server is behind the church firewall, it will never be on the Internet.
