Inverse action of "publish" to update my local disk

We are 3 developers (F,L,G) working for the same website and we are at different places. The problem is this: 'L' or 'G' publish modified pages, when I ('F') log to the website I must:
1) need to know which pages have been updated and automatically update my local site (with new or modified pages).
2) need to know who modified each page (we are logging all with the same userID - the unique one my ISP gave me for the account). I cannot make subwebs with 3 userIDs because the three of us are working across all the same pages (or I could?).
3) Why cannot login simultaneosly? (sometimes we get the error "server is busy")

NOTE: we are all working with FP2000

Can you help me?
Thanks

I can answer only for one part of your question.

I dont know any way to update (only changed pages) of your local web. But you can assign as many users as you like with different name/password for FW webs.

There is 2 ways for doing this:

1- Open your remote web with FP2000, select Security->Permissions within Tools menu and add users (Yo can assign for editing and/or administering rights for users)

2- You can use also FP web administration (if installed). it can be located http://your_domain/fp2k . in these pages you can assign users and rights for your web by using "Permissions" section.

if you do this, you can see authors of pages.

Thanks Turco for your help. I tried the first and works very well (I have Personal web server but couldn't find the fp2k directory...doesn't matter ;-)

I was thinking that if it is not possible to make an "inverse publish", we could try to work making corrections directly on pages "on line" but in this case:
a) What happens with new pages which generates each of us (when we publish FP will ask for all new pages that aren't on our local disks !!)
b) I want to find a way to make automatically backups weekly of all the changed pages... (our site have more than 70 Mb so it must be only changed pages...)

How about you open the web and publish to your local folder.  this still gives you the option to publish changed pages only (i.e. It is not the inverse of publish but the same thing to a different destination)

It doesn't work well. Once you poubish from remote to local, fp is losing existing update information and every time you publish your web, fp will ask to replace files. thus you can't know what is the situation of your pages.

A big problem solved with a simple solution... That's the way of the Genius !!!

Thanks daverole, it works perfectly...

What Turco says must be wright without a PWS working on the local machine. I have the Personal Web Server running so I think it's the reason why on a first time the "web site on the server" tell me if I wish update somepages,etc... On my hard disc I'm having the same intelligent directories that I have on my website, so... I must work !!!

Thanks, again...
