Full description WN is an HTTP server especially suited forWN is an HTTP server especially suited for servers that must also perform other tasks. Both a standalone daemon and a version intended for use under inetd are provided. The inetd version minimizes the use of system resources and is good for moderate or lightly loaded servers which cannot be totally dedicated to Web serving. Its goals are security and functionality usually available only with complex CGI scripts; this includes extensive security checks, full text searching and conditionally served text. Despite its extensive functionality the WN executable is substantially smaller than the CERN or NCSA servers. Its security model is based on the use of a small flat database in each directory with information about the files in that directory. Unlike other servers, the default action for WN is to deny access to a file: a file can only be served if explicit permission to do so has been granted by entering it in this database.n granted by entering it in this database.
