Be sure to read the fine print of the ArcView licence agreememnt before placing this anywhere too public....

Such fine print was authored way back when it became quite apparent one could easily make ArcView into a Internet Mapserver with a simple .dll...

>Hi MapServer developers, my name is René Viancos and i have an idea for

>The avclient.c file comunicates with arcview box from a linuxbox (where

>arcview functionalities to produce a Map Server.
>Mi idea is to give to Mapserver these same functionalities, to get Arcview 
>Functions, like Network Analyst, from Internet with MapServer, in sumary, 
>give arcview functionalities to MapServer...
>is it possible the fusion of avclient.c and MapServer ??... i don't know 
>how to do this, but in chile there is a web map service called MapCity (
