• [VOICENWS] SW: WebServe version 1.7 released

    From feedback@os2voice.org@1:3634/1000 to All on Saturday, January 27, 2018 22:58:33

    After a long period of stability, WebServe has been updated. You can
    fetch the new version from


    or from


    or from Hobbes incoming.

    WebServe (freeware, source included) is a lightweight web server. While
    it does not have all the bells and whistles of big servers like Apache,
    its minimalist approach makes it small, fast, and efficient. It still
    has enough features to support most web sites.

    The latest changes are an improved implementation of timeouts, and an
    option to log client hostnames rather than IP addresses. For that latter feature, however, we wait only a short time to get the nameserver
    result, and fall back to the IP address if the nameserver is slow. The
    reason for this impatience is that there are many web crawlers whose
    main function is to probe for security holes, and most of them don't
    have reverse DNS on their addresses.

    its motives questioned.
