I found some software a while ago that claimed to execute ASP.NET applications on a Linux server, I remember that the information said that takes the code and converts it to Java. I never downloaded or tested the software. Does anyone know the name of this software?

Also, is possible to execute ASP.NET on a Linux server in the first place?

This series of blog articles all talk about setting up and running different versions of MVC using the Mono runtime with serveral different flavors of Linxu. My take on it, yes you can.

Yes, it is entirely possible to use ASP.NET in a linux environment using Mono. I've never done it, but I know it is possible.

I haven't heard of the software that you are talking about, however, so maybe somebody else can shed some light on that.

I remember that I found the page of the software 3/4 years ago. – jmjpo Oct 18 '11 at 14:23
ASP.NET 2.0 can run with Mod_Mono – mangelo Oct 18 '11 at 20:27
I have never done time travel, but I know it is possible! – Jarrod Roberson Oct 18 '11 at 23:17
Yep, Mono lets you run .NET even on Apache, I've never used it myself though as my sites have always used PHP. – Ben Brocka Oct 18 '11 at 23:36
@JarrodRoberson unfair, at least I provided a link! ;) – Jetti Oct 19 '11 at 1:32

There have been several attempts to provide CLI/CLR compilers to the JVM, but I don't think any one has become particularly popular. See, for example:
