Web Serving, Hardware and Connection
There are several options for serving the web. This Section covers the options and likely costs to serve.
1. Computer with active TCP/IP protocal
2. Connection to the internet. It is preferred, but not required, to have ISDN or better connection to enhance speed and reliability.
3. Router or modem to connect to the telephone line. A router will allow your network to access the internet. Most modems connect only one computer.
4. WebClerk must be running, with WebClerk Startup activated.
How Our Web Site Works
1. When you go to www.webclerk.com or www.jitcorp.com you hit our static web page that is located at our ISP.
2. Our connection to our ISP is NOT constantly on. It is active only when there is traffic. We operate with bi-directional dial-up. When someone clicks on a support feature, our ISP makes the connection to our router and local server. This bi-directional connection saves on line costs but there is a very slight delay in making the connection between our ISP and our router.
3. As of Jan 1998, the connection to our ISP is ISDN.
4. We hav e fixed IP addresses for the machines which serve the web.
5. Our web server is generally a Windows NT machine, address 184.108.40.206.
6. We use a Netopia router.
