I want to set up an intranet using a Windows XP Pro machine as a server. I've installed IIS 5.1 from the installation disk and updated Windows. But I'm unsure what I have to do to set up the intranet.
If I place my html files in the wwwroot folder created on my C drive, would they then be avaliable to access by any computer on the LAN, or would they be avaliable to anyone on the internet?
I dont want the computer to become a web server.
Also, what is the difference between an FTP server and an HTTP server?
btw: i want to do this simply to learn more about networking...
