I would like to install Plone on my research centre, to update our web with
new services. As network administrator, I have been working mainly with
Microsoft since 1996 and I really would enjoy discovering free software.

I had a look at the documentation on "plone.org", it seems quite difficult
to implement Plone + Zope + Python + SMF on a Windows Server 2003 (in

Of course, online comments about Plone mainly report bugs or problems, so I
would like to know if it is possible to install those programs without
problems and... alone, not knowing at all the Plone functions ?

We have two servers, one with SQL and private databases, the other with DNS,
web and mail services.
I see the Plone Installer for Windows includes Zope 2.9.3 with hotfix, but
what are the recommendations for the Firewall, databases, etc... ?

Thank you for your attention and answer,
Kind regards,
