Frontpage prompts for my username and password repeatedly
FrontPage prompts for the username and password each time a file is uploaded.
FrontPage inherits Internet Explorer's security/network settings. If these are non-specific it may not be able to validate your logon and so will keep re-prompting you.
On machines running Windows NT version 4.0 or earlier (and sometimes on machines running Windows 2000 Pro), if you have Anonymous logon set under Internet Zone - via Tools, Internet Options, Security, Internet Zone, Custom Level, User Authentication and then Anonymous logon - and the server to which you are publishing requires NTLM authentication, FrontPage may not be able to successfully authenticate your logon.
You can resolve the problem in Windows NT/2000 by either:
- Switching to the default security settings for the Internet zone - via Tools, Internet Options, Security, Internet Zone, and then Default Level.
- Changing the user logon to prompt for the username and password - via Tools, Internet Options, Security, Internet Zone, Custom Level, User Authentication, and then Prompt for user name and password.
You can resolve the problem in Windows 98/ME by taking the following steps:
- Open Dial-Up Networking.
- Right click the relevant dial-up connection and select Properties.
- Click the Security tab and ensure that Log on to network is checked.
- Open Network in the Control Panel.
Ensure that Client for Microsoft Networks is installed (you may be asked to re-insert the Windows 98/ME disk).
