The Freedom 400x and 500x allow you to enjoy a greater level of control over your server: root level access. Root access allows you to install the applications you want to run on your server. You could even replace the Apache Web server with your own Web server program if you wanted. That's the kind of freedom you have with root access. IWD will support your Freedom product with its original configuration and pre-installed software. Keep in mind that customizations such as installing your own Web server are outside the boundaries of our support.
