Helicon Ape

Compatibility chart

Overview

Helicon Ape is designed to maintain maximum Apache compatibility. Although this target has been achieved at very high level, some features may not be implemented because they are too bounded to Apache or UNIX design and their implementation on IIS is senseless.

Please note that under Windows 2003 Helicon Ape runs as ASP.NET module, thus it will be only applied to requests that are passed to ASP.NET engine. On IIS6 you can map '*' file extension to ASP.NET engine to overcome this problem. Under IIS7 Helicon Ape is fully integrated into server pipeline and runs transparently to both server and client technology.
