always difficult to get going, hangs up on simple HTML
I paid for this application because I needed a simple server to be able to browse through some HTML documentation that I had on my machine.
The first time I tried to use it, it worked the first time, and then it would repeatedly fail to get an IP address. The next times I tried, I had to start and stop it several times before I got it to do what I want. Finally, once I had it working, my webpages would give me errors similar to this: "This page contains the following errors: error on line 66 at column 37: Entity ‘copy’ not defined. Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error.” When I looked at the line and position in question, I found some HTML that is using the entity for the copyright symbol (©). Is this thing parsing through my HTML? That’s scary.
I had no problem open the same HTML file on the web browser.
I wish I could get my money back.
I got an error message that the server couldn’t get the ip address, but was unable to contact tech support.
