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.
