The client version of Mac OS X can be turned into a fairly powerful server with a little bit of Unix wizardry, but that can prove to be a daunting challenge for some users.
Fe77 Software LLC’s
solution is the FE77 Server Suite, which provides everything you need to turn a vanilla Mac OS X installation into an enterprise server. Now the company offers a special University Program that chops a healthy chunk off the FE77 Server Suite’s regular price.

FE77 Server Suite enables a Jaguar-based Mac to work as a Web server using Apache along with Jakarta Tomcat, the popular open source Java servlet container. Server operations are managed through the Server manager application, which provides administration and control of most functions through an OS X native desktop application. Potential uses for the FE77 Server Suite include the ability to deploy applications in Java, PHP and Perl, blog publishing, and much more, according to the developer.
Normally priced at US$60, the FE77 Server Suite is available to teachers and students alike for only $19.95 (plus shipping — it comes on CD) through the company’s FE77 University Program. The program restricts use to personal, educational and research applications.
Students and teachers can qualify for the program and order the software online. FE77 Software LLC accepts orders through credit cards, e-checks, PayPal, or mail order. Restrictions apply, so please visit the Web site for more details.
