    Question Server Configuration?

    hi all,
    this might be a bit offtopic, but i'm looking for the best solution for running wowza on my win 2008 R2 server.
    i've installed the wowza demo version on an "empty" win 2008 server (without iis)
    and accessing it from another win 2008 server running iis.
    i'd like to upload video files (using a jquery uploader) to the "video-server" - but the problem is that it
    won't work "cross-domain" ..
    so i suppose i need to have both iis and wowza on the same machine using 2 IP addresses -
    is this the standard setup?
    i'm concerned about server performance when running both the web server and wowza which is streaming videos.
    thanks

    A web server is the best way to provide file upload to users, at present. Running a web server on the same machine is not an issue, by itself, but uploading videos with the web server will compete with Wowza for server resources. But if you are doing heavy vod streaming a RAID 0 or 1+0 disk array is recommended anyway.

    would it be possible to run IIS on the wowza machine on a different port (for the uploading task only)?

    It is possible. But IIS binds to all IP addresses by default, so you have to run a utility to exclude Wowza IP address, search around for "IIS IP bind"

    That won't change resource usage for the machine.
