What They're Saying:
"Well Done WEBSTAR. Version 3.0 is BRILLIANT. I just upgraded from 2.0.1
and you now have a really good product. Some of the features I find really
helpful are the new ftp server ( it's so easy to configure ) and virtual
hosts. This truly is a great web server."

"...the WebSTAR manual is one of the best manuals I've seen in a long time.
I was extremely happy to have a manual that didn't talk down to me,
provided detailed technical information, had a good index, offered real
installation instructions, and actually provided advice. Nice work."
