Hi - can Cassini be used to serve aspx pages to outside world? I've got it working on my localhost but my friends can't see it externally. I use
http://www.dyndns.com/ to create a static ip and this works great on my PC for PHP with the Abyss free web server.
Is Cassini for internal only??

All you need to do is modify the server.cs file, and replace IPAddress.Lookback with IPAddress.Any, or whatever address you'd like to bind to.

You probably run Cassini under administrator's account, which means if you make your app available to outside world, the person who manages to hack your app will have total control over your box. Being big fan of Cassini myself, I have to say that hosting
internet applications under Cassini is a bad idea security-wise. Small intranets, home, local and personal web apps - it's entirely different story. There Cassini is the great. If you absolutely must host an internet site under Cassini, get
UltiDev Cassini - it's not significantly more secure per se, but it's not limited to local requests only and it runs as windows service so you can configure its process identity to run under restricted account
like Network Service.
