Frontpage 2003 publish web from remote iis 6.0 server to remote iis 6.0 server slow

Post by lloydholma » Fri, 11 Feb 2005 02:22:12


All,

I am experiencing transfer speed issues when attempting to publish
from an IIS 6.0 website to another IIS 6.0 website running on a remote
Windows 2003 server.
The environment configuration/process I am trying to achieve is as
follows (please be aware this is an Intranet environment):

A number of web developers connect remotely from their XP Professional
machines using the Frontpage 2003 'File>Open Site' dialog to a
development website hosted on the development/staging server (Windows
2003 Server Standard, IIS 6.0). Two websites are running on the
development/staging server hosted with individual IP addresses, e.g.
http://intranetdevelopment (192.168.9.182) and http://intranetstaging
(192.168.9.188).
When the developers try and publish their updates to the Staging
website (hosted on the same server) publishing remotely from their
machines using the 'Remote Web Site' and 'Remote Web Site Properties'
options in Frontpage 2003 the transfer speed rarely increases from
around 1KB/s, obviously this is completely unworklable and times out
before completion, which is predicted at some 11+ hours.
Below are the relevant configurations and settings within the
environment:

Client Machines: Windows XP Professional sp1, Frontpage 2003
Development/Staging Server: Windows 2003 Server Standard, IIS 6.0,
Frontpage Server Extensions 2002.
NOTE: Both client and server are within the same subnet.

When trying to publish the following are set within FP 2003 under
'Remote Web Site Properties':
Remote Website Tab:
Remote web server type: Frontpage or Sharepoint Services
Optimize HTML Tab:
Nothing selected
Publishing Tab:
General Publish: 'All Pages, overwriting pages already on
destination', 'Include subsites'
General Changes: 'Use source for file stamps to determine changes
since last publish'
Loggins: 'Log changes during publish'

I have tryed many variations of these settings particulary within the
publishing tab, but to no avail.

I have tryed publishing from a local IIS 5.1 website on a client
machine (also within the same subnet as the development/staging
server) to the staging website and experience lightning fast (well
fast for HTTP) transfer. I can also successfully publish via FTP
(however I need to publish over HTTP using the FP extensions as we are
using specific FP components). I can also successfully achieve
standard windows file copy from the client to the sever, so I believe
we can rule out any network issues.

I have searched through the newsgroups, in particular
'microsoft.public.frontpage.client' and have found a number of posts
where people are experiencing similar problems, but no real hard and
fast solutions, is anybody else experiencing the same/similar
publishing speed issues or know of any workable solutions?
I have investigated using the IIS Migration tool for IIS 6.0, but this
is limited in the amount of subwebs it can migrate and will only copy
between separate servers, not between websites on the same physical
server.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Lloyd H
