Name and password box

My web page is showing the ID and password box when it opens
and then anytime a person tries to use any of the forms inside the web site.  You can click cancel and it goes away but why is it there and how do I get rid of it?

Can you post the html-code?

Should have to do with whether or not "Anonymous Authentication" is enabled for your site.  This is controlled by the server for IIS, and, I believe, by .htaccess for Apache type servers.

Are you using Win98?

I agree to tom that it is something about the anonymous Authentication. If you are using win 98, then go to the personal web server on your task bar and try to disable the anonymous authentication function. Hope this help...

Look into your Internet Information server, choose properties fro your Web. Then be sure to unable Basic Authentication and any other selections inside properties of Directory Security.

What is the value of your solution if the server is NOT Internet Information Server?  FrontPage and the FrontPage extensions are certainly supported (and used) on platforms other than IIS.

I don't know all the Web Servers all over the world, but I think it would be a good solution to search in the help of each httpserver for the word 'security' or 'access'.
I however doubt that any server works well with FP extensions

FWIW, Microsoft worked to port the FPx over to Unix (although I don't know which flavors/servers).

Our site, hosted by Netcom/Mindspring on a Unix box, supports FPx.  I was surprised when I learned this!

How to address security and access really is contingent on the server environment, and jorvidu is absolutely right to suggest searching the server documentation for a solution.

Your ISP should be willing/able to help solve this problem.  If you are hosting "in-house", you will need to rely on the server documentation.

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.

Please click on your Member Profile and select "View Question History" to navigate through any open or locked questions you may have to update and finalize them.  If you are an EE Pro user, you can also choose Power Search to find all your open questions.

This is the Community Support link, if help is needed.  Also a question is posted there specific to these changes that apply to the experts here.  Also, I am including the link to our All Topics, since many new ones have recently been added.
