FrontPage 98: previewing with MSIE 4.01

Whenever I am in the FrontPage98 editor program and click the toolbar icon to preview my web site in the internet browser the connection dialog for my ISP appears. If I cancel it my web does not appear. Modifying the connection parameter for MSIE4 (choosing a LAN connection instead of a modem one) don't fix the problem. How can I solve it ? Much thanks.

Do you have your web server running properly?  If you are using proxies, make sure that your computer name is listed under the "No Proxy Required for" setting.

If you have external links to the internet, your browser will also request that you connect to your ISP.  Personally, I like to just use the "Preview" tab at the bottom...

Just verified that adding an external link (in my case, a picture that I am using that is residing on a different web site) does indeed give option to connect to the internet when the page is previewed.

You probably won't have the problem with just external hyperlinks, but you will if you are trying to access external info.

Thanks a lot for your quick answer.
Unfortunately this don't seems to resolve my problem.
As you suggest I have added my computer name in the "no proxy..." setting.
My web server is well running during my FP98 sessions but how can I verify that this device is properly configured ?
Do I have to check something in the "FP Server Manager" that I've found in the FP98 main folder ?
