furthermore XP pro includes IIS5.0 (win2k3 server has 6.0)
what you'll have to watch out for are firewall and tightened security issues. watch folder security settings as well as folder sharing and make sure you configure windows firewall correctly.

But do I need to really check folder settings,firewall and other security issues.???
I doubt it, as I mentioned earlier, applications are web based (intranet) and running on the same server ( Windows 2000 server) for the both OS. ( Windows 2000 professional and Windows XP professional).
or I didnt get your word.? Can please elaborate it?

One thing about your last post that is confusing me now is that you mentioned windows 2000 server, I don't believe windos XP pro is an upgrade to 2000 server edition, but it's definitely an upgrade to 2000 professional edition.

Well let me clear things, I am going to move from Windows 2000 professional to Windows XP professional edition OS on my pc.
I have my applications ( web based intranet application using ASP ) running on my server ( Windows 2000 server edition).
What I have understand is that, I need to check IEUser account for folder contents that hold my website content on my server ( i.e on Windows 2000 server). Is that you mean?
But I am not doing any change in my server.I am just changing my OS on my pc.So will it affects my applications?
I read that ASP handles all the request on server side.So there is role on client except sending the request. Is am I correct?

note that 127.0.0.1 is the loopback address, replace it with the local ip address that your server is answering the website requests on if it is not set to "any"
