Q. FrontPage Setup - Camille's way

A. Camille (camilletrapp at hotmail.com) went through the grinder, and came up with this:

What to do so you can open your site in IIS4 (and above), frontpage2000 AND protect directories via logon using AuthentiX 5.1 at the same time

  • Make sure the Authentix isapi filter is on top of the fp filter no matter how many filters you have. Inetinfo filter should be highest of all. If you don't know which is which, right click.
  • Uncheck the box in the vb Version of AuthentiX on the server that says "Don't protect Frontpage directories with _vti...."
  • Open the permissions in the WINNT/System32 to Everyone Full Control
  • Open the permissions in the Authentix program directory (where the adb is) to Everyone Full Control
  • Open the permissions to wwwroot and all subdirectories to Everyone Read/Execute control (millions of files), then your Windows NT/2000 or Frontpage NT accounts/groups write permissions.
  • Then open the web in frontpage. Then Open a protected or logon page in your browser and verify that logon is working.
Once you've got there....start working backwards choking down directories and files always checking that everything stays working. Good luck!

Thanks Camille!
