NOTE: Regardless of which operating system you are using, if you use dynamic IP addressing and you are not currently connected to either your network or the Internet, you may not see an address in the IP Address box, or it may be displayed as 0.0.0.0. In this case, you can still access the TCP/IP networking functionality by referring to the default local host by using either the Domain Name System (DNS) name of localhost or the default IP Address (127.0.0.1).

Determine Your Web Server

  2. Click the General tab. The following information is listed:
    • The IP Address or DNS name of the Web server.
    • The version of the FrontPage Server Extensions.
    • The type of Web server software running on the server.
    • The IP Address of the computer running the FrontPage client software.
    • The proxy server software (if any) being used to access the Internet.
NOTE: If you do not have access to the Web server and you need to determine what type of Web server software is running on the server, you can probe the server with software from the following Netcraft site: At this site, type the host name or IP address to find out what Web server is running at that site.
