Maybe this is a foolish question, but how can reasonable security on a 
server running Windows/Apache be achieved? If the answer is what I fear, do 
you think that the 'native' MS server, IIS can be configured more securely 
than Apache?

Looking at it in another way, is it possible to have a secure, network 
accessible server of any type w/o the Unix style permissions concept in place?
