|11||360||Text correction: Error in Table 11.3
Under Field Data, the third entry "192.168.1.5" is incorrect.
The IP address of the server that generated the log entry is 192.168.1.51, as shown in Listing 11.2 on page 359
|11||361||Text correction: Incorrect IP address
In the last sentence before the sidebar, "In this particular case, the hosting web server (172.19.90.111) is an intranet web server..." the IP address is not the same one being used in the example illustrated by Listing 11.2 and Table 11.3. The address should be 192.168.1.51.
In the first sentence, "With this information as a backdrop, you now know that you can expect your FTP logs to read very much like your IIS 7.5 server logs, except there will be fewer fields, and the sc-status codes will be different."
, "IIS 7.5 server logs" should read "web logs".
