Accessing my WebServer remotely from a client machine in my intranet.

Hi,

When I attempt to access my Internet based FrontPage Server from home, I get the following error from my client machine.

-------------------------------
HTTP Error 401
401.2 Unauthorized: Logon Failed due to server configuration

This error indicates that the credentials passed to the server do not match the credentials required to log on to the server. This is usually caused by not sending the proper WWW-Authenticate header field.

Please contact the Web server's administrator to verify that you have permission to access to requested resource.
----------------------------------

I can access the server from my nt PDC at home, but am unable to establish contact from my client machine in my local domain.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank You,

Brendan Vowles.

This sounds like the issue is on the server.

From the web server (assuming it is an IIS server), open the MMC and select the properties for the web you are trying to access.  Select the "Directory Security" tab.  Click the "Edit" button for "IP Address and Domain Name Restrictions".

Make sure you aren't blocking all ip addresses accept that of the pdc.

Other than that, your problem stumps me with the information givin.

Good Luck  :)

Where is your webserver, on the same network as your PDC?

You did not say if you were using FP2000. If you are, you might try looking at the permissions on the server. If you had permissions before you upgraded to 2000, delete it, then try again. Through much heartache, that happened to me and in an effort to clear it I reformated my hard drive to clear the registry (per Microsoft!) Turns out 2000 makes another set of permissions and the two I had were conflicting. Hope this helps!
