Web Server (HTTPD) Overview

The Web Server (HTTPD) feature for Microsoft® Windows® CE .NET enables you to monitor, configure, and remotely control a device or computer through the use of a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) server. The Web server provides this service for network printers, scanners, and other shared equipment.

The Web server implements a subset of the HTTP/1.0 protocol and allows connections to be maintained through keep-alive functionality. All configurations provide file downloads, multiple virtual paths, and simultaneous connections. You can include additional components in your OS configuration to add support for authentication, Internet Server Application Program Interface (ISAPI) extensions, ISAPI filters, and/or active server pages (ASP). The Web server is loaded by Services.exe at system startup.
