Unable to "publish" from FrontPage 98

I used to be able to publish (upload) files from my computer to my hosted website from within FrontPage 98 with the publish command.  Now I cannot do it and it has something to do with "permissions".  However, both "permissions" and "change password" options in FrontPage 98 Tools menu are greyed out.  Any idea what is going on and how I can get back to publishing with FrontPage 98?  Thanks for the help.

You can use the options in the tools menu only when logged in on the the server. To do so you choose open and open your web (server-) address.

You could also contact your server administrator and have him reset your password.

Koengi: There is no error message.  FP98 Explorer simply keeps asking for user name and password even when correct user name and password are provided.

astyanax:  I am not sure what I need to to do from your comment.  The local web, with the personal web server running, is in my desk top computer.  In the past after I made changes to my web on my desk top, I could upload the changes to the remote ISP by using the "publish" command by providing the ftp address, directory path of remote server (which are stored so needed to be input only once), user name and password (assigned by the remote host, required every time).  Now I cannot do that.  My user name and password are correct - in fact, I can still upload by using a ftp client.  But I cannot do that from within my FP98 Explorer.  
  I would appreciate any additional info either of you have on this.

Ok, since you can still log on using a ftp client it seems to me that somehow your local installation of fp98 is corrupted somehow.

Maybe de-installing and then re-installing will solve this problem the fastest.

If you create and maintain a larger website I would recommend to upload it with a ftp client rather that with fp direct. FP has the (sometimes good) feature to compare your local and remote web and then copy the updated files only. But when your web grows larger you will see that the process of comparison alone will take far too much time.

  Thanks for your comments.  You are right that uploading changed files using a FTP client is likely to be faster than using the FP "Publish" option.  I will go that route.  Reinstalling FP did not help.  The problem has to do with the fact that my computer is part of an NT LAN with access control set at "user level."  Because the particular user name and password for the external ISP is not on the LAN list of users, FP rejects them.  I have not found a way to work around them.
