Hey guys,

I need to begin with an apology. I feel a bit out of my league at the moment.

Here's the scenario:

I develop web pages. I'm a linux/unix guy when it comes to hosting. A client of mine recently had their site, previously on a linux box, moved to our partner's in-house servers. Unfortunately, these guys aren't forthcoming where information is concerned.

I called up to try to get a feel for how I had to convert their current Perl-based scripts (ie. CGI)for the new server.

I was told simply that the box was running iAS 6 and if I needed anything special I had to let them know. It was there that the call ended, not by my choice.

So my question is this:

What the hell is included in a standard install of iAS 6, what can I expect to use for server-side scripting such as a contact form, and do I need to request they install anything in particular to gain this support?

Any help that you guys could provide would be a life-saver. I've been turing up very little information in my research. I've gotta get this stuff converted in the next couple of days, and I'll be lucky to get anywhere at all with our buddies hosting this thing.

Thanks in advance!!
