Specifying Build Method

You have four options when preparing to create a SiteSurfer. You can have the Builder access the information directly, using the specified protocol (e.g., http:// or file:/); you can use a proxy server; you can point the Builder at a local copy of the site's content; or you can redirect the Builder to a local web server for quicker retrieval of pages.

Most personal web sites will be suitable for processing by the local mirror method, which is much quicker than processing over the internet. More complex sites should be processed using the direct method; to speed up processing, you may want to establish a local web site to exploit the local server method.
