Hello everyone,

Same here. I use BeOS as a websever using PoorMan. I was using Apache but I 
cannot justify such a heavy program for a small site like mine. I also FTP 
and Telnet from work to take care of business. Then there is TuneTracker. I 
have my own audio stream for my wife and myself. Beats the heck out of 
lugging and loosing CDs.

Maybe it's too much to wish for and maybe others are right. But it would be 
fantastic to use BeOS as a true server in small production environments. 
Does anyone have the newer SAMBA that is supposedly out there somewhere?

Warm regards,
