Hello all,

I was finally able to get fastCGI up and running! I have ported several  
CGI applications following the information in the white paper. I have one 
question about its performance, though. I am measuring the time it takes for the browser
to process both the CGI and FastCGI applications and it seems to take about 
the same time for the CGI application (sometimes longer) than the original CGI application.
Do you think the difference will be noticed when there are several users accessing
the application at roughly the same time? or do you think there might be another reason I am overlooking when comparing their performance?
I am running both the CGI and FastCGI  applications on a secure Web server.

Thanks in advance for your comments / suggestions,
