FrontPage stopped asking for user name and password (publishing)

FrontPage 2002 on WIndows 2000 server.

We recently installed SP4 on this Win 2K production server.

Ever since the upgrade, FrontPage no longer asks users (web site owners/publishers) for their unername and password when they access through FrontPage editor.

Where has this gone wrong and how can it be fixed?

Nope. sorry no help there.

I found the answer, very simple, for some reason the IUSR account was not included in  the "browser" group. But was in the admin group. I have found no reason for this other than in grneral FrontPage sucks, is full of holes and it seems you can never get a good answer since the problems it gets into ara all unique.

Didn't see any help in your answer, This was on Win 2k FP 2002 anyway. A long established productioon server that i not a new or re-install.
