     This code is a (near complete) HTTP server coded entirely in Visual Basic. By default it will run on port 80. Uses the winsock control and can accept multiple connections on a single port. (as many as your RAM permits up to 32768) Also has a pretty good (with colour coding) output screen so you can tell what is going on, and watch connections to the server. This project is intended for anyone who wants to use VB to develop their own customised web server, tailored to their needs -- but is quite versatile, so any programmer who understands a few basics can use this code. This is my first code upload in a while, and i'm after comments more than votes so please post feedback so I can improve the code. (note: documentation included in download)

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
