I’m a website – duplicate me

As part of a discussion with a colleague – I was thinking of a way of duplicating the content of an application which would actually be a website contained within a Domino database. Interestingly he had already carried out the same operation and when we looked at it discovered he had used a different tool be the same approach. The tool I had chosen for the job was Teleport from Tenmax which you can get here.

I have used this several times for clients to let them have copies of various web based sites for contingency purposes or to illustrate certain features off line. Its quite quick and comprehensive in its searching of static sites. I would recommend giving this a try if you need to see how sites are constructed or if you need a backup of a site.
