    FP2000 cannot access web site (FrontPage 2000)

    A while back my provider upgraded their servers to Win2000 [from what I don't know]. Since then I've been unable to access my site using FP2000 -- I'd had no problems for the best part of a year until then. I'd made no changes to my system, -- Win 98 SE, 1Ghz AMD processor, etc -- had upgraded nothing, changed no settings -- I firmly believe if it works, then that's fine, don't change it. However, bizarrely, my old steam-driven Win95 system can get through but it's ancient and I don't want to rely on it. My provider insists it's not their fault -- even though they'd made the changes, not me -- especially as my old system can get access. Any ideas how to solve this problem would be appreciated. Also, I'm planning to change provider, -- will this problem follow me? Otherwise it seems to me the only solution is to re-format my hard drive and start again...yuk!

    Are you trying to publish using the button on the toolbar, or by using File > Publish?
    (I assume by 'access' you mean 'publish'?)

    What error message(s) are you getting?

    The fact that your W95 system can get through would suggest a 'problem' on the W98 system. I would have no concerns about changing ISP's (unless it was to a bad one!) - when the issue is resolved it should simply be a matter of changing the publishing address within FP.

    (I always feel annoyed when I hear that ISP's appear to have an attitude of "It's not our fault" and do not try to help. Ours has been know to telephone me on my mobile, simply so that I could walk round our building checking connectivity from a number of workstations!)

    Yah but too many ISP have snotty attitudes about FP and eventually it rubs off in the support they offer.

    My theory on the problem is that it is a security issue.
    Win 95 being a "dumb" (hey - no snotty attitude here <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>) OS doesn't know there is a security issue - Win 98 does.
    Best thing is to test - can you get to another system and try?

    Cheers
