NuGet Server

NuGet Server is essentially a self-hosted wrapper of the NuGet.Server package. NuGet Server is distributed with its own IIS Express instance and as such does not require a webserver to be installed on the machine.

It's simple! This one is free and open-source.

Why do you bundle IIS Express as an MSI?

In order to increase support for servers that do not have IIS Express installed it must be bundled with the service. The Microsoft license agreement for IIS Express only allows distribution in .msi form.
