I've been using Rebol CGI with Windows 2000 and IIS for around six months now. This doesn't seem like the way we set up IIS to run Rebol as a CGI process (though it does seem familiar). We got it going a lot easier than this. Unfortunately, I've forgotten how to do it!! I believe there's a tutorial on IIS 5 from the MS help site which shows how to set up generic CGI scripts which was helpful? Andrew Martin ICQ: 26227169
