Publishing a Database Using Instant Web Publishing

As with databases to be shared over a network, start by setting up accounts and privileges to be used. (You can reuse settings you have already created, but often you want additional settings for the Web. If your database is on a closed network, reusing the settings is probably fine. However, if you are opening the database to everyone on the Web, you probably will want some new and more restrictive settings.)

People will normally use an IP address to access your published database if you are on a LAN; if you publish a database on the Web, they can use either an IP address or your domain name. You will need a static IP address for your Internet connection for people to be able to reliably get to your published databases. If your IP address changes from day to day (as it generally does with dial-up connections and as it may do with always-on connections), people will have to contact you each time they want to connect to your published databases to find out the address du jour.
