Subject Re: Some JK2 ideas

mod_jk with Apache is not that hard.

mod_jk2 is much harder for me to understand.

Getting the IIS connectors to work with IIS 6 appears to be rocket 
science though.  [Dang thing just shows a red down arrow on the filter 
whatever you do without giving any real error!]
