Web server
In general, a computer that is equipped with server software that uses Internet protocols such as Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and File Transfer Protocol (FTP) to respond to Web client requests on a TCP/IP network.
Web service extensions
ISAPIs and CGIs that extend Internet Information Services (IIS) functionality beyond serving static pages.
wide area network (WAN)
A communications network connecting geographically separated locations that uses long-distance links of third-party telecommunications vendors . See also local area network (LAN).
An .ini file that provides a bill-of-materials to incorporate into the Windows installation. Winbom.ini can control different points of the installation and configuration process: for example, it can control Sysprep during Factory mode, Windows preinstallation when starting from the Windows Preinstallation Environment (WinPE), or Windows XP configuration during Windows Welcome.
Windows Installer
An operating system service that enables the operating system to manage the installation process. Windows Installer technologies are divided into two parts that work in combination: a clientside installer service (Msiexec.exe) and a package (.msi) file. Windows Installer uses the information contained within a package file to install the application.
Windows Internet Name Service (WINS)
A Windows name resolution service for network basic input/output system (NetBIOS) names. WINS is used by hosts running NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NetBT) to register NetBIOS names and to resolve NetBIOS names to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. See also IP address; network basic input/output system (NetBIOS); service.
Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)
A management infrastructure in Windows that supports monitoring and controlling system resources through a common set of interfaces and provides a logically organized, consistent model of Windows operation, configuration, and status.
WINS lookup
A process by which a Domain Name System (DNS) server queries Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) to resolve names it does not find in its authoritative zones. See also DNS server; Domain Name System (DNS); Windows Internet Name Service (WINS); zone.
WMI provider
In Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), a set of interfaces that provide programmatic access to management information in a system. Internet Information Services (IIS) implements a WMI provider in the namespace called MicrosoftIISv2to provide programmatic access to metabase properties and system settings.
worker process
The implementation of the core Web server in Internet Information Services (IIS). Worker processes run in W3wp.exe.
worker process isolation mode
The new Web process model for Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0.
World Wide Web (WWW)
A set of services that run on top of the Internet and provide a cost-effective way of publishing information, supporting collaboration and workflow, and delivering business applications to connected users all over the world. The Web is a collection of Internet host systems that make these services available on the Internet, using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). Web-based information is usually delivered in the form of hypertext and hypermedia, using Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). The most graphical service on the Internet, the Web also has the most sophisticated linking abilities .
World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)
An international industry consortium that is jointly hosted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Laboratory for Computer Science (MIT/LCS) in North America, by the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique (INRIA) in Europe, and by the Keio University Shonan Fujisawa Campus in Asia. W3C was founded in 1994 to develop common standards for the World Wide Web. Initially, the W3C was established in collaboration with CERN, where the Web originated, with support from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the European Commission.
