FP2000 and Windows XP - 200 points here


Upgraded from Windows 98 SE to Windows XP, still using FP 2000, and suddenly can't publish webs after the upgrade.  The Kingston Network Card is confirmed fine and setting/default drivers from WXP also fine.

When I try to publish using FrontPage 2000, I repeatedly get this:

Accessing HTTP Servers requires 32-bit TCP/IP Networking, which is not installed or may be misconfigured.

My TCP/IP connectoid uses the PPPoE Protocol and was established with my ISP's guidance, but the problem persists.  Any ideas?  The original question in Windows XP was posted at 200 points, I'm adding 50 here.

Thanks for any helpful comments in this regard either in this Q or the primary 200 point Q.

I noted, also, if pertinent, that the primary connectoid from the ISP is a WAN and that the ICS was established by default, not clear if pertinent or not.

Thanks again

This Microsoft article states specifically my error message and says it has to do with my Personal Firewall, which I have installed; recommends uninstalling it first and then publishing.  I have a problem with this solution, since I have an ADSL connection and do not want to expose my system to intrusions.

Any ideas?

Problem solved, will ask that this question be refunded and moved to the PAQ to help others.

I had to disable the Personal Firewall completely and publishing went without a hitch, as usual.

50 points refunded, item moved to the PAQ at zero points.
