Hello,

Certainly you can do that! Although, if you're doing it over the
Internet from a non-business connection, it would depend on your ISP's
AUP/TOS ;-).
You don't mention which server you're thinking of running. Apache is the
most common and is very easy to learn. Check out
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/ for the tried and true 1.3.x branch or
http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/ for the "new technology" branch.
Whichever server you decide to use, think, "Security, security,
security." You wouldn't want to discover that the Visigoths left a turd
in your punchbowl when you weren't looking.

Regards,

Steve
