Can't create a project in FrontPage 98, Interdev

I have Windows NT 4 workstation,
Service Pak 4 , frontPage 98 and Visual interdev.
My Computer name is STAR.
World Wide Web Publishing Server is started.
When I try to create a New project, I am getting this error message
"Unable to contact web server http:\\star"

frontpage 98 also gives the error "404 Not found."

1 Solution
Did you try putting a default file in the root of the virtual directory, something like "default.htm"?
Just a quick walkthrough: When you start a new project, the first screen asks you for a name and location. The location should be a local PC address, not the location where your site will eventually be viewed. On step 1 of the wizard, the server should be just 'star'. Don not connect using secure sockets. The rest of the steps are self-explanatory.
