Publishing a Site with FrontPage 2003, what am I doing wrong???

Hi all, I am trying to publish my site to a server that I have running Windows 2000.  I have recently figured out that this is why my forms have not been working.  So I go to the start menu within FrontPage and I click on publish, the I type http://myipaddress of the machine, and I get the following:

Unable to open: http://myipaddress
Server Error: The web server at "http://myipaddress" does not appear to have Windows Share Point Services Installed.
Possible Causes:
1. The web server may bot ahve the FPSE installed.
2.The web server may be temporarily out of service
3.IF you are connecting through a proxy server, the proxy settings may be incorrect
4. An error may have occured in the web server.

I do have FPSE installed, I checked.  The server is working, because I can map a drive to it.  There is no proxy server.

What am I doing wrong.  I test this site on my local machine by clickin on publish and then I typed http://localhost and it worked fine, the forms worked and everything, but I need this site to be on the server, am I missing something here.  

The things is, I could put FrontPage 2003 on the server, but I do not want to do that, plus I want to be able to open the site remotely and edit it from my workstation.  Thank in advance.

    Instead of publishing to the ip address try publishing to the machine name:

    http://machinename

    Also I understand you have server extensions installed but they may not be installed correctly.

    Try accessing the webserver from your browser and see it the site is at least operational.

    Then try opening your webserver in front page by clicking file, open web and entering the ipaddress or machine name.

    One more thing -- Do you have share point installed on the local machine? If you do then you need to install share point on the server.

    I have tried to publish to the machine name as well.  I still get the same error.  I can access the webserver from my browser, that is working correctly.  It has to be the server extensions.  The reason is I tried to copy and paste the site into the inetpub folder just as I did on my local machine, but this only put the site there.  I can see all the pages from my site, but the forms do not work.  I get this error:

    FrontPage Run-Time Component Page
    You have submitted a form or followed a link to a page that requires a web server and the FrontPage Server Extensions to function properly.

    This form or other FrontPage component will work correctly if you publish this web to a web server that has the FrontPage Server Extensions installed.

    Click the <Back> arrow to return to the previous page.

    Any clues?

    Thanks,

    Corey

    Share Point Services are found on the Office 2002 CD.

    Try removing the server extensions from your webserver and from the local machine you are using. Reinstall server extensions in both locations using the same version. This will ensure you have the systems set correctly. I recommend using FPSE 2002 as these are easy to setup and normally require no intervention in the setup.

    I installed the FPSE 2002 on my local machine.  Then I did a terminal session to the server, I started to install it and then I get this error:

    The server adminstration programs and the server extensions on the web server are not compatible.  The administration program is too old to use with this program.

    Should I just click ok and continue to install it anyway?  I have seen this error before, but I am not sure how to resolve it.

    You need to go to Control Panel, add remove programs and remove the server extensions completely and then reintall. You have different versions running and it is giving you a conflict.

    I did go to the control panel, and I unistalled the 2000 version that was on them before, then I tried to reinstall the 2002 version and this is where it the error is coming from.  I am not gettin the error on my local machine, just on the server.

    Can you remove the site from the server. Your issue seems to be related to the different versions of SE installed. Try uninstalling IIS and then reinstall and reconfigure your server extensions.

    I know this is a lot to ask but you need to get started on the right foot here and this will make sure you have everything right and will save you time in the long run.

    I have uninstalled the IIS from the server and I am now going to reboot and install the IIS.  I need to go to the server room to do this being that I will need the disk to reinstall the IIS.  The thing is, won't this automatically put the FPSE 2000 on, and then I will have to uninstal them and put the FPSE 2002 on, is this correct?

    Thank you so much, I got it to work.  I had to uninstall IIS from the server, then when I reinstalled it I unchecked the box for FPSE 2000, I reinstalled the IIS, then I installed the FPSE 2002, all that I had to do then is to publish the site to the server through FrontPage 2003.  Thank you so much!
