Web Servers

Timothy Daly

Abstract:

This lecture covers the standards and concepts involved in Web Servers. We talk about the RFC standards in some detail. Then we present the source code for a full implementation of a standard Web Server and examine the network interactions. We demonstrate communicating with this Web Server using telnet by hand and using a standard web browser. Next we review ideas involved in using Apache, an open source web server.
