FrontPage NOT logging onto Website

Hi, hope you all well.

Windows XP SP1. MS FrontPage 2003.

I'm trying to connect to a webserver on our local domain. If i type in the address of the webserver in my internet explorer, I can browse the site without hassel. The minute i try connect to it in Frontpage, it comes up with Connecting to Web Server box and just "hangs" there. If I connect to its IP address then it requests username and password, Opens the same "Connecting to Web Server" box and hangs there.

I can open our local sbs server website, our websites at our hosting company all fine - just not this box. However, there is a windows 2000 pc next to me - same domain as my xp machine, same FrontPage and it opens on there fine?

Any suggestions!

Thanks

This is strange you got everything right.

Let's try something if you can.

Do you have a friend who has a site on a host like yours with Win 2003 and FP Ext. 2002 to try.  I want you to try and connect to another website to decide where is the problem.  If you can then the problem is somewhere between you and the server,  otherwise,  the problem is in your XP computer.

If you can and have access to other websites,  or ask a firiend of your who has a website to log on to his website using your PC if he/she is concern about letting you in.

We just need to decide the location of the problem.

Hi,

Did you check the option "Enabled with Microsoft Frontpage Server Extensions" in your Tools>Page Options?

If you did,  then:

Did you have Fronptage 2002 before installing Frontpage 2003?

If yes, Frontpage properly from your machine and then reinstall it.  After that uninstall Server Extensions from your computer then reinstall them.

I had Frontpage 2002,  before and when I installed Fronptpage 2002 I became unable to connect to the website.  It used to hang.  I uninstalled Office then removed it from the registry, rebooted then installed office 2003. After that reinstalled FP Server extensions.  Now all is fine.

Yup, enabled for "Complete"

Did not have FrontPage 2002 - fresh Windows XP NO Service Pack 2 and Just Office 2003 and FrontPage 2003.

To use FP2003 you better have FP 2002 extensions.

Sorry guys, misunderstanding.

The webserver running is a Windows 2003 Server with Sharepoint Services enabled and IIS6.0.

The client PC that I'm trying to connect from is XP Professional. Frontpage 2003 installed.

OK SeanNij,

Can you check and tell me what are the Server Extensions that you are  using?

2000 or 2002

FP 2003
Windows 2003
IIS 6

Require FP 2002 extensions.

Hi,

In trying your last suggestion we discovered that the server I was trying to log onto was using Intergrated Authenticaion - on different domain. So, thankyou for steering me in the right direction!
