Is there a new PWS software newer than the one came with FP98?

I am not giving any points, Sorry. Because this is NOT a question that would make you think. ;)

Yeah there is, you can find it on the Microsoft's site or WIN98 CD.  Also can be obtained from Visual Studio 6.0 CD if you have that.
To download, go to , there are 3 flavours of Option Packs, one for NT Server, one for NT Wstn, and one for WIN9x.  Pick on that is best for you (probably for WIN9x).

"How can I have a password protection dialog box, just as the one that comes up when you hit login, to go into Experts-Exchange?  One that works with Windows - asking for the Network password?


I went to your answered questions and found this one. Your anwser was largely based on using Frontpage....Do you know what else can do such thing beside using FP98?

Thanks for the Info on PWS newer version
The solution you saw about password protection is a very basic one.  It will not prevent others from entering if they know the exact url they are accessing.
The best is to setup a global.asa file on your server so that, no matter what someone requests, the server will always redirect them to the login page first.  Then setup a database (Access97) and create a DSN to it.  Then create a few ASP (Active Server Pages) files that will retrieve/update info from the database to verify/add logon info.  This method is quite complicated and require some programming and client/server knowledge.
So, it depends on how good of a security you would like to set.  If it's the first solution, then I might be able to help in a day or two.  If it's the second, sorry I don't have the time to answer this in detail since I am having university exams these days.  Feel free to ask others about it.
