Chapter 16. Publishing a FrontPage Web Site > A Birdseye View of Publishing

A Birdseye View of Publishing

Publishing is easily one of the most troublesome aspects of FrontPage for many users. When you publish a FrontPage Web site, you rely on not only your own machine being configured correctly, but you also rely on the machine to which you are publishing the Web site to be configured correctly. In addition to that, you have to contend with any machines that lie between you and the destination server. Quite simply, plenty can go wrong when you're publishing a Web site.

Where the Information Goes

When you request a page from your Web site on the Internet, you aren't sending and receiving information directly to and from the Web server your site is hosted on. Instead, you are sending and receiving information through many machines on the Internet. For example, I traced a browsing session between my machine and a Web server that I know to be just across town. The information being exchanged between my machine and that Web server went through 13 other machines on the Internet before it reached the remote Web server.
