IIS and Gameservers

Hey People,

as i have read often, apache2 and gameservers do not like each other ;p
So, better to have web and gameserver-root split in 2.

Now i want to switch from my linux vServer to a Windows Root-Server.
How about IIS and Gameservers?

Is it possible (and good) to run IIS and Gameservers on one machine (Core2Duo)?

Greetings
SeToY

You'll have no problems. I run webserver and gameserver on the same IIS box.

So, you would suggest me running a windows rootserver?
And - of course - you would say that running a Windows Webserver (IIS) and Gameservers would work perfectly?

You could better ask this question at a site aiming at gaming or hosting.

I personally wouldn't suggest running windows servers at all...

As for linux and game servers apache plays ball perfectly fine with them; just make sure that the gameservers don't listen on port 80/443 and you'll be fine. Better yet get a secondary ip address from your host and use that for your game servers.

If you need any assistance with the linux side of it; i'm currently running 4 l4d2 servers on my machine without issue, so can give you some pointers if you need 'em

Linux, windows server for gaming = begging to be hacked imo as hackers love to target gamers, it takes away all their fun (the gamers) and thrills the hackers to no end to see entire communities not able to share in a friendly fragfest but as always that's imo.
