Subject: Advice on Setting up SAS/IntrNet Web Site
Like many of you, I have really been enjoying "playing" with the new
SAS/IntrNet software. I have built a prototype WEB-enabled SAS
application for internal use at the organization that I am currently
associated with. However, the roll-out of the application will be
hampered by the infrastructure limitations of the WEB server that we
are sharing with another branch of the organization.
Therefore, I want to sever our dependency on their WEB server, and
create our own WEB site from "scratch". I plan to purchase a server,
the server software, the WEB software, etc. to create a new WEB site.
I want our (already WWW-enabled) user population to access our site
over the WWW to get their information.
I would like to hear from others who have had success bringing up a
SAS/IntrNet site from "scratch". I am very interested in hearing
about equipment and server software purchase experiences and
decisions. Of specific interest to my current organization is
encrypting information that is transferred over the WEB.
Oh, and: Yes, yEs, yeS, I _DO_ realize that this request is very
general, and I _DID NOT_ include very much information about our
environment. However, I am _EXTREMELY_ flexible at this point, and do
not want to straight-jacket the dialog with predetermined
configuration/equipment requirements or expectations!
I will look forward to hearing from... YOU!
Of course, all of these opinions and insights are my own, and do not
reflect those of my organization or my associates.
