Cannot Connect to IIS4 From FP98
Posted on 1998-09-14
I have set up a web site that I want to administer from Win95 clients using Front Page98.
I type in the URL of the server, and select list webs. It shows me the list of webs on the server. When I try to edit them, I get an error -2146893042.
I have looked this up on Technet and it says that I need to enable NT challenge response authentication and make MS Client the default client on the workstation!
This is a netwware network and I can't do this! I thought the whole point of FP98 was that it used TCP/IP and sockets, we want to get away from installing any particular client.
There must be something strange going on here, I mean dial up users with front page talking to a Unix box with the extensions on don't need NT/LAN Man authentication.
Please help this is quite urgent and so I am prepared to give 300 points to anyone who can help sort out the problem.
By the way, I can't see any option in the rather naff, Front Page Extension "administrator" program to determine the type of authentication used.
The only options for authentication are in IIS4, but this should apply to the NTFS directories I guess, not to the Front Page Port extensions. I don't know ! help!
