A couple of tips that has helped me out for figuring out virtual servers with Contribute.
1.Verify this: "Contribute needs to connect to a web site that is running on a web server. When setting up a connection, sites that point toa file (C:\yourwebfolder\files\index.htm) in the initial Uniform Resource Locator (URL) dialog will not work. Contribute needs the path to be http://localhost/files/index.htm or some equivalent of http://www.my-domain-name.com/index.htm.." http://www.adobe.com/go/tn_16673
2. Contribute supports nested connections and alternate website addresses.
In past versions of Contribute, it was not possible to create separate connections to different levels of the same website. Contribute 3.1 allows you to create overlapping, or "nested," site connections (i.e. http://mysite and http://mysite/folder1). This allows administrators to delegate administration of parts of the website to other people within the organization.
Note: Child sites do not inherit administrative settings from parent sites.
3. Also if you are using more than 20 SFTP connections, you might want to download this updater to fix a problem with Contribute
Thanks stockholmsyndrome2006. Item 1 is not an issue, and 3 wasn't either, but I installed the patch anyway. Item 2 is interesting and may present a way out of our problem. I'm gonna take a closer look.
