.NET Core

Introduction

Warning

.NET scripts belong in your home, not in your docroot.

.NET is a server-side runtime implementation of CLR, the virtual machine that manages the execution of .NET programs. While .NET Core shares a subset of .NET Framework APIs, it comes with its own API that is not part of .NET Framework.

Connection to webserver

In order to make your application accessable from the outside, you need to connect it to the webserver, using a web backend. Please note that your application must listen on the IP 0.0.0.0. You can choose any port between 1024 and 65535.


Caveats
