Hello.  I am new to Frontpage and I am trying to figure out how the security administration works.  I have created a web, published it to our web server and that all works well.  However I want users to have to log onto the intranet and based on their id and password states what pages they get to see.  I am using 2002.  When on my pc I open the web I published I click on Tools and the Server option is greyed out.

Anybody understand how that works?  The two books I've read have been unable to help me understand.

Thanks.

To use the Tools - Server feature you neded to be logged onto your server, not your local machie which you are on now.  Just go to Open Web & enter your domain (i.e. http://www.yourdomain.com) and hit open.  There is where you will be able to access tools - server.

That was a great idea!  I only wish it had worked.  It got closer.  What I had been doing was Open Web and then navigating to the server it was on and choosing it that way.  When I did that it opened the web, but it never said connecting to web server.

So I typed in http://172.16.96.104/IntetPub/test/ where test is the name of the folder that is my web but it kept giving me an error saying it didn't exist or I did not have the rights.  I am an administrator on this network so I don't think it is a rights issue.  I'm closer tho thanks.

Is test a folder or a sub-web?  You are opening a web - so test cannot be a folder - it needs to be a sub-web.

Okay now you have me confused.  Sub-web?  I'll have to read up on that.  By web I am referring to something I publish via FrontPage.  And, yes, Test is a folder.  When I published test via FrontPage it created a folder on my web server entitled test.

When I navigate to it via Frontpage to Open it, it opens it.

When I open a browser and enter http://172.16.96.104/test/index.htm it opens my web page.

Hope that makes sense.

If you right click on test - you can see - convert to sub-web.  A sub-web is pretty much the same thig as a folder, but you can just publish info from that web only - it is helpful if you have different sections to your site

You pointed me in the right direction.  After playing with several options I tried creating a new web on the server, instead of on my local machine and publishing it to the server.  Once I did that the server told me it did not have Frontpage extensions installed - whereas I thought it had.  Therefore, I will install Frontpage on the server and hopefully that will resolve my problem.

Thanks much!
