Replying to How To Run A Webserver On Darwin ?
Posted 23 November 2005 - 09:42 AM
No-ip.com ( http://www.no-ip.com/ ) provides this : you go to this site, you register, you choose a name and a password, and then they provide you with a fixed name (choose empty_calore.mytftp.com for instance) and they will give you the way for the fixed name empty_calore.mytftp.com to be always reachable, even if your dinamic IP changes. For instance, on my ftp server, I always have the same fixed name, but when I ping it the IP address changes frequently.
Just try this for fun, it is harmless.
Of course, if nobody connects to your site, after some monthes no-ip people will warn you that you have useless resources, and they will ask you to pay if you still need that unused site name.
Hope this helped.

with such a name, it should be a httpd... serving only http.
If you want to serve ftp, you will need to have a ftp server.
I know it's not a Linux, however, all the standard Unix systems (including probably freeBSD) have an embedded ftp server, just as Linux does.
So, first look if darwin doesn't happen to simply have an embedde auto-installed ftp server.

Its based on FreeBSD, but with a re-written Open Kernel used in MacOSX.
and without Aqua.
to the best of my knoledge anyway.

Oh, I see.
Darwin is considered the 4th BSD.
So it will look familiar for Unix people as well as for Mac people. But it will not be purely linux, nor purely System V, it will look closer to a BSD system.

Darwin is basically MacOSX with X11 instead of Aqua. The open source components of the Macintosh.

Nice, I will give lighttpd a try.
try Lighttpd http://www.lighttpd.net/
I was rather disappointed by httpdlite, but it's quite a different story.
By the way, what is Darwin ? Is it a kind of Unix ?
