Support for Microsoft Windows 2008/2003 Web Edition

Support for Microsoft Windows 2008/2003 Web Edition?


Product: modusMail & modusGate
Version & Build: all

Microsoft Windows Web Edition and Vircom Products

This document is important for customers considering using Microsoft Windows 2008/2003 Web Edition with Vircom products.


Question:  Does Vircom support its products on Windows Web Edition Server?

Answer:  Vircom only supports the installation of the modus web components on a Windows Web Edition server. All other products (modusMail Server, modusGate Server, VOP Radius, and VOPCOM) are not supported.

With respect to modusMail / Gate, the only supported implementation scenario is where the web components are installed on the Web Edition and the modus server is installed on another (supported) Windows server version.

Microsoft states: “
Licensing terms for Web Server also further clarifies that the server software may only be used for front-end Web serving Internet-accessible Web pages, Web sites, Web applications, Web services, and POP3 mail serving*" (* i.e., webmail).

NOTE: As long as Microsoft prohibits running non-webserving applications on its 2008/2003 Web Edition, Vircom, in turn, must insist that deploying modusMail or modusGate Server on the Web Edition is not supported.  Because of Microsoft license restrictions, Vircom cannot legally test modus server on the 2003/2008 Web Edition.
