Hi all,

Windows XP SP1 running Office 2003 SP1. Connect to broadband connection Through ISA Server.

Trying to open a sharepoint enabled site in Frontpage.

It was working fine up until a couple of days ago. Now when i try open the site, its ask for username and password, promptly fill it in and then Frontpage seems to just hang. No error message no nothing. Site doesnt open.

I can open the site from a FrontPage PC on a different network without isa.

Nothing has changed on the network here (well at least nothing of purpose). Is there any potential Frontpage cache that needs to be cleared out or do i try a re-install FP, or any ideas?

Try to create a new user on the same machines with a problem.  Test Frontpage in that user  if everything went fine it means that the current profile might be corrupted.

Just to test:

Add a new user in XP
Make the user Administration
Test Frontpage with the new user

If everything goes fine.  Logon to XP using the new user,  uninstall the extensions then reinstall them.  Then log off the new user and try the old one and try.

Got error trying to add user about Active Directory too busy.

Could my server issues with the GPO have any effect?

I don't think so.

Why can't you create a new user for your Local Computer to which you log on.  I did not mean to create a user on the server using Active Directory.

I don't know that much about ISA,  but may be you can find your answer here.


Hope it helps
