ALP is implemented as an Asynchronous Pluggable Protocol. It acts like a WEB server but without need of network. It executes WEB applications such as ASP pages and CGI applications. ALP makes Internet Explorer to be server and client. With ALP you can write stand-alone desktop applications, CD-ROM autoruns, use ASP for pure desktop software and still keep your code ready to run on WEB servers too.
Write desktop software in ASP and CGI!

ISAPI URL Remmaper description

Purpose and description of the filter

The main purpose of the filter is to give an alternative way of creating virtual hosts under IIS. The filter can also work under Personal Web Server, giving the ability to have more than one site. It identifies the different sites by their hostnames and maps all requests, connected with the given site, to a physical location on the server. There are two schemes of mapping (see below for detailed description of each scheme). Additionally exceptions of the common way of mapping can be defined. These exceptions apply when specific subdirectories are found in the requested URL. Exceptions can be defined globally for all sites on a given IP as well as for a particular site.

Note: As the mapping exceptions can be global i.e. common for all sites on an IP and personal for a specified site only we will name the global mapping exceptions ‘Common mapping paths’ and the personal mapping exceptions – ‘Folder exceptions’.

To make things clear let’s take one simple example. Assume you are an ISP and you host customer sites on your server. You have a /cgi-bin and a /img directories that you want to be accessible for every customer because they should use some common scripts and images. Of course every customer should have personal web root directory where to store his files. Additionally some customers have more privileges and use /cgi-bin and /img directories with different contents than the other users. And, in the end, all users should see the shared directories in a same way.

If you use this filter you can manage this situation like this: Create a virtual host for every user, assign him directory and mapping scheme. Define common mapping paths for the two shared directories /cgi-bin and /img and direct them there, where are the files for normal users. Only for the users with higher privileges you can define folder exceptions for these two directories and direct them a different location or locations.
