Coding ASP Classic on Linux
Hello all, First, I should let you know that I am not an experienced ASP coder and, honestly, don't have lots of experience with Microsoft products.  I've been using Unix for more than 20 years and Linux for about 10 years.  Most of my programming experience is with Perl and Python. I just landed a new client that needs some code work on their current online training that they offer.  It's written in ASP Classic and running on a Postgresql back-end.  I don't have experience with ASP Classic but can pick-up on the language relatively quickly (I think).  I will do the work on a Windows XP box if I have to but would prefer to do the coding one of my Linux boxes, if possible.  Does anyone know if this is even possible? Thanks for your help.

I can confirm that what you are trying to do can be done (I do that all the time). What are you trying to connect to? Also, can you connect to that database on your new computer from something other than ASP? Finally, show me your connect string and I'll take a look.

IIS On Windows XP
I'm used to developing on Windows 2000 and recently I finally upgraded to Windows XP Home edition. Does XP come with IIS? I do much ASP development and I like to develop all on my box and do not wish to set up a IIS server.
