In the midst of the whirlwind of colored folders and special effects, it stands out, for reliability , the Apache web server component, supplied as standard with each copy of Mac OS X and virtually functional on every Macintosh on which it can be installed. But for those who need other features?

"Serverware" is the name of the proposal that includes the Tenon iTools, WEBmail and Post .Office, with everything it needs to run: Apache, DNS, multihoming type FTP server with virtual hosts, password-protected or anonymous FTP, the mail server, which transforms the machine into a complete mail server on the type of " Mac.com WebMail "with POP3 and IMAP4 support, a list server, as well as a fully configurable web-based mail client, even a search engine and a whole range of scripting tools for the web (PHP, Java Server Pages, Active Server Pages).
