This is more or less the same for Go and the like where the binary(“exe”) can listen to on a given port. That and I want to thank Sutean for his post similar to well this one; however, I wanted to dig in a little further into the application pool explanation and provide some additional insight for those that only have to setup IIS every blue moon having my own documented. Further I’m going to be extremely basic so something that seems straight forward will be included. I also used Actix web for my server, but again this could be any framework where the executable can listen on a port.
