> Try www.goahead.com - they have a free web server already ported for VxWorks.
1) I tried to use goahead. I ran into a problem where something wasn't working right.
Since this was a free web server, there was no one to answer my questions and get
the problem fixed. (They have a news group, but unless a willing and knowlegable
person is there, you are on your own.)
2) Goahead requires you to display their logo on your main page. Company lawyers
don't like that.
3) Goahead requires that you allow them to display your company's logo. Company
lawyers *really* don't like that. (It is disliked so much, that unless you obtain
special permission, you can be terminated from HP or Agilent Technologies for
giving goahead permission to do it. Other companies may have similar policies.)
4) Lawyers also don't like the concept of, if goahead just happened to use somebody
else's copyrighted code (knowingly or unknowingly), it is our company that can be
sued. (To be more specific, our lawyers don't like that. The lawyers of the guy
who's copyright you are violating will love it.)
You get what you pay for. If your needs are simple and you are a small company
without lawyers who worry a lot, goahead may work fine for you. If you may need
help with your web page, or you want to keep your company's lawyers happy,
buy a web server. The small fees and purchase price is not worth the hassles.
