At CodeProject we spend an awful lot of time playing with room heaters, or as others like to call them, "servers". Over the years we've seen it all, some of it smoking, most of it usually working just nicely until something happens.
What that something is can be hard to find so we've created a quiet place for those battle scarred and frustrated to get a little help.
I'm looking for an easy and cheap Windows Server / IIS / SQL solution. I just want to be able to deploy my application on a test machine. This is not for production.
First I looked at Azure and other hosting services. When you are requesting for a Windows Server with IIS and SQL it's too expensive. They offer a lot of services I don't need.
I'm now looking to build my own server at home. I already have a Synology but I cannot install IIS or a virtual machine on the Synology. I think I'll have to buy a new PC. I'm thinking of something like the Asus eeeBox but I'm not sure the eebox can run IIS or windows server.
What is the best solution? Virtual machine, hosting, Azure, new PC?
You should also differentiate if you need to access computers in a different network or in the same network (which may be a virtual private network also). In the latter case, some kind of VNC might do.
Commercial alternatives usually offer more possibilities and thus might be worth their money!

I have a regular C# desktop GUI application providing regular windows interface.
WCF is not used for supporting these interfaces, since it mainly working as a standalone desktop application, with a lot of data involved in data transfer. But I have used WCF with netNamedPipeBinding for UI automation.
Now I would like to call these interfaces from a web page also.
So in my understanding
1. I have to host my desktop application as WCF web service
( with httpBinding and need o provide a new contract for the interfaces).
2. Call the existing I/Fs from the new interface class.
Thank you Wayne. I am a beginner in web development.
My real concern is whether I would go for a WCF service, REST service or a Web Api.
My primary intention is to use the service in a client web application. Later I also planning to use it from different devices like tab/mob.
We are planning to setup our product documentation online. Currently we are hosting static HTML in our servers. But since the documentation is still on-going, updating the HTML every time new pages are brought in becomes very difficult. We plan writing some PHP but, any such stuff like a CMS is really difficult to code and maintain.
So, what are some good options to host developer documentation in our servers? Currently, we have a subset available online, and some hosted inside the intranet and this is the one that gets frequently updated.
We thought of WordPress (being the only CMS I've came across in my life), but we don't think it would be adequate. Or it would be? With plugins or something?
And, we also are thinking of considering Joomla. Will that do the task?

My company has developed a system hosted on WCF using SQL Server & SSRS.
For each new client we typically deploy a new server including new SQL licenses etc.
I would like to consider going the SaaS route using MS Azure, but it's rather confusing from their website to determine what I'll need.
A. Do I need to take both the virtual machine (for IIS & WCF) AND a SQL Server contract, what about SSRS?
B. Can I create multiple DB's (one or two for each client)
C. Is there a limit on the amount of concurrent connections to my WCF services?
Is there a webpage somewhere that explains the Azure packages and how the fit together more simply? Many of the links on MS's websites go to 404 not found, it's very frustrating.
We have a web site which can be viewed from the old device and the content is returned as wml for those devices automatically. It's working all the way. One day, we cannot see the web site from the devices anymore. So we try to peek into the response data from the server and found out that it's not wml anymore, so the device cannot show this info.
We checked the IIS settings such as MIME, Handlers and so on. We still cannot find the cause yet.
I know the information is so vague for you to help.
However, please share any kind of advice or guess or your similar experience for now we run out of the idea and any other hint to try out will be very useful for us.
Regarding to WAP gateway, is there a way I can check how my server is handling this or so?
Thanks & regards,
