Grab-a-SiteGrab-a-SiteThe Grab-a-Site options apply to all projects.

You can set the browser and editor that Grab-a-Site uses when launching pages.

Maximum Threads - The number of active connections Grab-a-Site will use when downloading pages and graphics.

Maximum Threads Per Server - The number of active connections Grab-a-Site will use when downloading pages and graphics from a single server. You should keep this limited so it does not bog down someone's server with too many simultaneous active connections.

Maximum Bytes to Grab (in Kilobytes) - This limits the amount of data that Grab-a-Site will get during a Grab or a Refresh.

Maximum Amount of Time to Grab (HH::MM) - Limits the amount of time that Grab-a-Site will work when you hit Grab or Refresh.

Use Domain in Directory - Stores the files for each site in a different directory. For example: If you were getting http://www.ibm.com, the files would be stored in an ibm.com subdirectory, while the files from http://www.visa.com would be in the visa.com subdirectory.

Preserve Site Structure - Store the files in a subdirectories which mirror the directory in the URL. For example, the page from http://www.ibm.com/goodies/page.htm would be stored in a ...\goodies subdirectory on your hard drive.

Use MS-DOS 8.3 Filenames - Creates 8.3 filenames from the online page names. This can be used for backwards compatibility with the oldest of systems.

User Agent - Lets you set how Grab-a-Site reports itself to the web servers. By default, it sends "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1.)" which makes it look like an Internet Explorer version 6.0.

If you connect through a Proxy server, you should set Use Browser's Proxy Settings which will get the settings from your Internet Explorer's settings. Most users will not need to set this information.
