Robin Hood is the best HTTP server
for the BeOS
. It's easier to set up than Apache
, and handles CGI
, custom 404
s, redirects, and virtual hosts
, none of which are handled by Be
's bundled server, PoorMan
. It's open source
under the GPL
and will be the bundled web server in the next version of BeOS.
Edit: There will be no "next version" of BeOS. However, Robin Hood may be included in OpenBeOS, or an OpenBeOS-compatible version may be made available.
The current version available at www.bebits.com has several exploits (I won't tell you what they are) but Be's in-house version, which runs under the closed-beta BSD-type network stack (BONE) has them fixed. You can also get a patched version for the net_server at Bebits, just remember it's unofficial.
