Can't open asp.net web application since server moved

I used to be able to create/open my asp .net web applications when my server was local. It was moved to an offsite location with a ISA server (firewall, packet monitoring, location logging). The network people assure me it should work but I can't create new projects or open old ones.
If I try to create a project with FP server extensions I get the logged error:- "Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions:Error updating 'C:\DOCUME~1\twsmaint\LOCALS~1\Temp\FrontPageTempDir\_vti_inf.html' - didn't find the WebPost/FrontPage section"
If I try a file share I get "the UNC file share does not exist or you do not have access".
I have set the permissions to be "everyone".
Any ideas on this one?

Instead of setting the permisions to everyone try to set your "WRITE" permitions.  The fact that not even a file share seems to work sugest that this is not an issue of Net but of the security on the server.  

Also invite the network people to sit beside you as you try the update.  When they see what you are trying to do they may be able to figure it out.

"Write" permissions are set for the web application. The error messages do not change.
when I try to pen an existing project I get:- "unable to pen web project '/'. The webproject '/' does not exist"

I restarted the server and from IIS server, tasks, check server extensions. This corrected the write permissions and everything worked OK.
