A PageBox host is not necessarily an ASP. On Internet it can be any host with a static IP address. On Intranet it can be any server.
The Application Server can be IIS or Personal Web server with the .NET framework.
The presentation can be in any format supported by the PageBox host, for instance:
In addition to presentations PageBox for .NET allows deploying any kind of file.
A PageBox repository is essentially a well-known point where:
PageBox repository is implemented as a set of ASP.NET pages.
Presentation providers publish their presentation with HTTP POST file upload.
The Repository deploys presentations on PageBoxes using a SOAP Web Service.

The Presentation provider publishes presentations and files on repositories.

Therefore it is possible to install a PageBox for .NET in remote offices or in home sites.
Companies create corporate portals and Webtops. These environments provide to the employees most of the application front ends that they must use. A PageBox complements a Portal because it automates the distribution of front ends to Web services. Rather than developing and maintaining its own front end, a company can subscribe to the repository of a provider. When the Web service changes, the provider only has to publish a new version to update all portals.
PageBox is a framework for the development of distributed Web Application.
We describe this capability in Distributed Web Application with PageBox..
