API / http.sys / Sam talks about IIS6.
Request Processing Architecture of IIS 6.0/Win2K3.
Sam tells how IIS uses http.sys. My side note is that you too can
use port 80 while IIS is running via the new
Win2k3 Http API. 😉
Craig Andera asked “How can I take advantage of this to have my
app listen on an arbitrary endpoint on port 80?” too. I guess this
API is the answer.
