Using an IONIX Domain Manager as a simple web server

It's not widely known - but all the Smarts domain servers (and brokers) can be used as simple web servers.

One use of this is to allow the html documentation pages to be browsed. Here's how ...

If you have a domain called INCHARGE-AM running on port 1234 on host smarts-server, then the URL to use to browse the AM servers documentation is..

http://smarts-server:1234/doc/html/usage/aindex.html

You can use this style of URL to browse any of the files in the doc/html folders. But please note, the simple webserver is NOT a generic one, and cant be used to access other files in the installation, or to execute cgi scripts etc. "Apache" and "TomCat" still have a role to play.
