Hi
 I am trying to create a project using MS Visual Interdev and it gives me the following message.
"The web server does not appear to have any authentication enabled. The server has asked for user authentication, nut did not send a WWW-Authenticate header."
 I have Frontpage Server extentions installed and set Authentication to Allow Anonymous Access and set anonymous user to IUSR_<machinename> which is part of the browser group.
 I am using Windows NT 4 workstation with SP6a.
 Is there anything I am missing here, why am I getting this message all the time.
 Thanks in adv. for any help.

Thanks

you MUST have NT Authentication set in order to use Visual Interdev (or Frontpage) to author web pages using FPSE.

goto your website in IIS, and right click and hit properties. goto the "Directory Security" tab and edit the security options.

if you are on IIS4, then check the "NT Challenge / Response" box, if your on IIS5, then check the "Integrated Windows Authentication" box.

make sure you're username is setup on the box (or the domain) and has proper rights to the directories that your web pages are sitting, to edit them.

why a "B" and not an "A"?
