.NET Microframework (NETMF) Web Server source code available


So as I got lots of asks to get the code of my Web Server, I’ve decided to create a Codeplex project. You’ll find the source here: https://netmfwebserver.codeplex.com/

It does include the following features:

  • Start, stop, Pause the Web Server
  • Creation of a Web Server on any port
  • Fully functional multithread Web Server supporting GET only
  • Downloading any file present on a SD (or any other physical storage)
  • A full function to get all the parameters of a URL

Examples of usage can be found on this blog. Working to publish a fully functional example.

Feedback welcome!

    Hi Laurelle,

    I have two requests for ASP.NET Development Server.

    – When we use the partials or server-side includes (SSI), like shtml, in html source and run the project using The ASP.NET Development Server, it doesn't render the partial. Please consider this in your future efforts as I believe that what Mikhail said in 2009 here (forums.asp.net/…/1469711.aspx) might be obsolete with the enhancement in intellisense. Intellisense is much richer and intelligent since 2009 or VS2008!

    – Let users access ASP.NET development server other than localhost. For example via LAN!! This is a very basic requirement in rapidly changing development environment. Here is what comminuty think about this issue stackoverflow.com/…/863980.

    Ease of access is one of Microsoft's charm but apparently developers are being pushed away to other options due to the lack of fundamentals. As a ruby on rails developer, I can run four kinds of webservers with three words in shell and the whole LAN can access the application. But as a ASP.NET developer, why can't the ASP.NET developer server extend this courtesy via VS GUI as well as the command line?

    I hope someone must be worried at Microsoft and doing something about it!

    Please ask your question in the right forum. This place is for .NET Microframework. and the web server I have implemented is VERY far to a normal ASP.NET Web Server.

    I have implemented your webserver code in my project. netduinoblog.wordpress.com/…/netduino-can-you-hear-me

    Receiving the requests is not a problem, I found it very exciting to be able to communicate with my NP2. So far the happy part. :) When I try to send a response to the request the NP2 doesn't show any exceptions but the controller sending the requests immediatly gets a Connection Closed Exception. So I can't receive an answer. Have you had any similar problems? Or any ideas as to why this occurs?

    Much appreciated!
