The Web Server (HTTPD) is a Windows CE–based HTTP server that facilitates the use of the Internet for communication between a Windows CE–based device and network printers, scanners, and other shared equipment. Web Server applications send Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) pages to a requesting browser. Users only need to have an Internet connection and a browser to be able to make use of the Web Server functionality.

Note   Web Server does not provide proxy services.

The Web Server supports IPv6. For more information about IPv6, see Core Protocols of IPv6 and IPv6 Addressing.

If your operating system supports the Windows CE Web Server, it might also support the use of Active Server Pages (ASP), depending on the functionality included in your operating system by the device manufacturer. For more information about ASP, see Active Server Pages Application Development.
