Frontpage Server Extensions Form Prompting Me for Login Credentials

I have designed a simple form in Frontpage that emails the forms data when you hit the submit button. However, upon hitting the submit button on the web page, I am prompted for login credentials. I enter mky admin level login credentials and the form functions as anticipated. I note that the submit button is referring to _vti_bin/shtml.dll/form_test.htm, where _vti_bin/ is a virtual directory under the main web site.

My question is how do I go about eliminating the request for login credentials?

The form can be seen here: http://www.aegisoft.com/logic-test_Aaron.htm

Contact your hosting company and ask them to check the permissions.  let them know what is happening and they should be able to fix it.

Sometimes, if you have access to the FPSE control panel, you can recalculate the web and that also fixes the problem

This is hosted on our own server. I know it's probably a permissioning problem, but not quite sure where. The pages themselves open just fine - it is only on the submit that you are prompted.

Also, I was forced to move the page to the url http://www.aegisoft.com/aegistaff/logic/logic-test.htm

As there are a great number of web pages that were not created under frontpage, this seemed risky to me. Also, all referencial links worked, once you gave a login that is, thus seemed definately a permissions problem to me.

After doing some googling and reading the article http://www.microsoft.com/technet/archive/office/office97/reskit/fp98serk/SECURITY.mspx?mfr=true
I became aware that when shtml.dll is called, it calls other system dll's itself and these dll's must have the same permissions as shtml.dll or you will get prompted for a login. This makes sense, as the web server was restored from backup some time ago and the permissions in the windows directory probably got overwritten in the process.

As the length of system dll's was extensive. I decided that the quickest route was to uninstall FPSE 2002 from the system and reinstall them. I did this and the forms now work perfectly!

Thanks for the ideas though!
