Hi all. Hope you are well.
Windows 2003 Standard Edition running Office Sharepoint Portal Server 2003.
I recently decided to setup a small web hosting server for particular clients, which thanks to EE help is running like a charm! (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Servers/IIS/Q_21054672.html
One of my client now want to make full use of FrontPage 2003, including the ability to Insert Data View. On consultation with MS it was pointed out the the server needs to be running Sharepoint Portal in order to do that. Okay, so after many $$$ for a licence I have it installed and running. Using the Wizard (IIS) and Administration tools in Sharepoint Central I can reletavily easily setup a SharePoint Site. All content provided by the wizard.
But, my client does not want a Sharepoint "Looking" site. They want to extend their sites functionality by including database access (mdb) and other bits and pieces, and in turn making use of FrontPage to do this!
My problem (finally ;-) is the following:
a) I cannot "surf" the site without being asked for Authentication (anonymous turned on - take off Windows - give me all sorts of 401.2 errors)
b) I dont want to have the default sharepoint content installed. (not an issue - can remove - i think - manually)
So, is their away of just enabling sharepoint services on a web site so that the client can make use of his FrontPage 2003 dataview? I've tried to include just the ISAPI sharepoint filter but this doesn't seem to work. I get the feeling this sharepoint thingy is really for "intranets"...
Any advice. Thanks
