Frontpage Publishing - Cable Modem Problem but not Dial-up
Posted on 2004-04-04
I have recently moved over from dial-up to cable. Frontpage 2003 has now become very troublesome - timeouts, re-requesting server passwords and so forth. Dial-up is still working just fine - but of course slow. I have tried to FTP large files to the site to chceck if the connection is broken through cable - no problems there - it flies. I have tried FTP'g lots of small files - not web - to the server (thinking lots of small files might be causing the problem - no problem. I have read all the comments I could find here and elsewhere - they seem to suggest that FP can manifest timeout problems with big sites (500 pages + or sites containing big files) - but that can't be the case here as it works in dial-up. Any suggestions - because neither the ISP nor the Host feel they are at fault.
PS - I have tried using anothre machine with a fresh copy of FP instaled - same problem occurs.
