I have an Intranet site that I cannot get working.  People can reach the intranet site, but the users that have access to edit it cannot.  I have the Frontpage server extensions installed, but when I open the web page to edit, the security tab is greyed out(Local Machine). I need users to be able to edit this page.  Any help?

When I open WEB through FP I get an error saying that the volume is unavailable or the disk is password protected.  Which it is not.

where is the web located? I am assuming that its located on the network, do you have that drive mapped?

Im on the machine where the web is located.  The users edit the page the same way, using the edit button in the browser.  When I open the page to edit, I cannot see the folder list of the web, nor can I give any more permissions.

Not a good idea. You need to use the FP Client to do this.

If you like, I can move your question the the FrontPage area - it would be a better place for it.

Thanks,
Sean

Hi MCBlair,

How is the machine that has the page formatted?  NTFS or Fat32?

If it is FAT32 convert it to NTFS in DOS prompt.

C:\Convert /FS:NTFS
