Make sure you have done the following:

To register a user of a restricted-access FrontPage web (Internet Information Server (IIS) or Microsoft Personal Web Server):

A FrontPage web administrator can restrict general end-user access to a FrontPage web and then register specific users that are authorized to access the FrontPage web.

1. In the FrontPage Explorer, on the Tools menu, choose Permissions.

2. If the current FrontPage web is not the root web, select Use Unique Permissions For This Web and click Apply.

This specifies that the current FrontPage web will not inherit its permissions settings from the root FrontPage web.

3. In the Users tab, choose Only Registered Users Have Browse Access, and then click Add.

This displays the Add Users dialog box.

4. The Obtain List From box lists the domains that are known to the Web server. Select the domain that contains the user for whom you want to add permissions.

5. In the Names list, select the name of the user who will have access to the FrontPage web, and then click Add.

6. In the User Can field, choose the Browse This Web option.

7. Click OK.

8. To add the user and continue working in the Permissions dialog box, click Apply. To add the user and close the dialog box, click OK.

To authorize a group of FrontPage web authors
(Internet Information Server (IIS) or Microsoft Personal Web Server):

Authors can create, modify, and delete pages in a FrontPage web, and they can make other changes to the web’s content. Use this procedure to authorize a group of authors for the current FrontPage web.

1. In the FrontPage Explorer, on the Tools menu, choose Permissions.

2. If the current FrontPage web is not the root web, select Use Unique Permissions For This Web and click Apply.

This specifies that the current FrontPage web will not inherit its permissions settings from the root web.

3. In the Groups tab, click Add.

This displays the Add Groups dialog box.

4. The Obtain List From box lists the domains that are known and acceptable to the Web server. Select the domain that contains the group of authors you want to authorize.

5. In the Names list, select the name of the author group, and then click Add.

6. In the User Can area, choose the Author And Browse This Web option.

7. Click OK.

8. To add the new group of authors and continue working in the Permissions dialog box, click Apply. To add the new author and close the dialog box, click OK.

To register a group of users of a restricted-access FrontPage web
(Internet Information Server (IIS) or Microsoft Personal Web Server):

A FrontPage web administrator can restrict general end-user access to a FrontPage web and then register specific groups of users that are authorized to access the FrontPage web.

1. In the FrontPage Explorer, on the Tools menu, choose Permissions.

2. If the current FrontPage web is not the root web, select Use Unique Permissions For This Web and click Apply.

5. In the Names list, select the name of the group that will have access to the FrontPage web, and then click Add.

6. In the User Can field, choose the Browse This Web option.

7. Click OK.

8. To add the group and continue working in the Permissions dialog box, click Apply. To add the group and close the dialog box, click OK.

You can also set permissions for computers, based on their IP addresses. You can set permissions for a group of computers using the asterisk character (*) to create an IP address mask. For example, the IP address mask 127.*.*.* applies to all computers with IP addresses beginning with 127. In this scenario, a user, author, or administrator must not only have sufficient permissions to access the FrontPage web, but must also be working on a computer that has the appropriate level of permissions. By default, all computers have permissions to browse to a FrontPage web.

Hope this helps...

Thanks for the input but my problem is that the permissions option under the tools is never highlighted.  Thus I do not have this option.  Another interesting thing is that when I add a User registration form and try to use it a message appears stating that my server does not support this function.  I have searched all over for a solution and I come up empty.  I believe that my problem might be with the proxey or IIS settings but I have tried changing everything to no avail.. Please help...
