Now, the time has come to install and configure a Web server and create a simple CGI-BIN e-mail form so that our Linux X terminal users (and users of other browser equipped workstations) can connect to the Text Messaging Gateway to send messages without complicated mail configurations or additional client software installed on their machines or the application server.

Boa isn't the only Web server we could use -- Apache works well -- and I'm sure some of the others will too. I like Boa for this application, because my unscientific observations are that it runs more quickly on 486 and first-generation Pentiums with 8 to 16 megabytes of RAM. For small operations that average less than 30 or 40 messages per hour, why not use something inexpensive? This is Cheap and Easy Linux server-centric computing, after all."
