Web Servers

Timothy Daly


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.
