(assuming i, in fact, do assign the ip address.) > 3 - Push up all your test content to the new virtual service. is there some schnappy way of doing this besides copying everything through Explorer? basically i'd like to make sure a mirror of the site as it is right now is created. and another thing, can two sites use the same DSN? thanks, chris.
