BUG: IIS 6.0 is slower than IIS 5.0 when you use the WriteClient API to

| 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
| 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
| 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 be
