How can I set the permissions in Microsoft Personal Weber Server 4.0 so I can access its web sites via a modem? The help file for this aspect is none existent. There is a file called access.cnf which only has one line in it.

You need to set up your computer to share files over a network connection.  Not positive on this one, but I'm pretty sure it requires TCP-IP protocol.  Also need to set it up for remote Dial-Up access using the proper protocols.

On the calling computer, you need to have the same network protocol installed and properly configured.

This really does not have much to do with PWS, but more with being able to access the PWS server from another machine/LAN.

As long as you can make a HTTP request from one computer/lan to this server, you are fine. Now, in order to make an HTTP request, you need TCP/IP (or it's derivatives, like PPP, PPTP, etc). How you go about doing that depends on your network configuration.

So far none of the answers have helped.  Let me start again.  I have PWS 4.0 installed on an office computer connected to the internet.  It constructs its own "root web."  From home or anywhere else, I can see the "root web" with a browser as I know the computers IP address.  But I want to be able to edit the "root web" with Frontpage 98 from my home.  When I try to open the "root web with FP98 I get an "error 403" which I gather is "access denied."  How can I edit this "root web" with FP98? I don't seem to have any problems doing this if the remote computer has PWS 1.0.

Have you setup permissions correctly in FP and its extensions ?

Are we talking about Windows NT Domain Model?

If this is the case, make a local group on the resource (in this case the computer with the "root web". This can be done by using "User Manager" or "User Manager for Domains".


Make a global group on a domain controller (PDC or BDC).

Enter the global group into the local group on the "root web" machine. This way you have access to the resource from the whole domain.

From the Peer Web Server, assign the necessary permissions (eg. Full Control) to the local group (you just created!) - Make sure, the local group have the "write" permission set on the "root web"

Great answer but unfortunately I'm using Windows 95 and not Windows NT.  I should have specified.  Perhas hkp could tell me how to do this under Windows 95?

I would like to, but I have only small experience with Windows 95. Perhaps, the answer could be lying in the installation of "Internet Connection Services for RAS", which should be installed under the Customs option when installing PWS.

Good luck, and thanks.
