Unable to connect to our servers with your user name and password:
 
  • Your FrontPage user name and password are case sensitive! Double check you are entering the correct user name and password.
  • Connect to your ISP before launching FrontPage.
  • Shut down the personal web server (if running) before logging on to your ISP and before starting FrontPage by going into control panel, personal web server, startup and pressing the stop button.
  • Check in Control Panel, Network, Configuration and see if you have Client for Microsoft Networks installed. If not, install it by going into the Control Panel, Network, Configuration, Add, Client, Microsoft, Client for Microsoft Networks, OK and follow the on screen instructions.
  • Verify that your Primary Network Logon is selected as Client for Microsoft Networks. If not, change it by going into the Control Panel, Network, Configuration, Primary Network Logon and select Client for Microsoft Networks.
  • Verify that you have "log on to network" enabled in your ISP dial-up connection by going into My Computer, Dial-Up Networking, right click on the ISP connection you are using to access the internet, select properties, Server Types, Advanced Options and verify that Log on to network in checked. If not, check it and press OK.
  • Try proceeding your username with "internet\".  Therefore, if your username is "jsmith", try entering "internet\jsmith".
  • If you are behind a firewall or proxy server (NOTE: some DSL modems have firewalls configured), your network administrator may have to open the following ports in order to establish an NTML authentication:
    • UDP Port: 137 (NetBIOS Name Service)
      UDP Port: 138 (NetBIOS Datagram (Browsing))
      TCP Port: 139 (NetBIOS Session (NET USE))
    • This opens the ports needed to perform NTLM authentication. For more information see Microsoft's knowledge base article Q170998. http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q170/9/98.asp
    • If you are using a Netgear RT311 or RT314 router, a FlowPoint 2200, or a Cisco router using Cisco IP IOS, then you may contact us and we can assist you in configuring your router to open these ports.
    • Finally, if all else fails, we can configure your account to send a clear text username/password. This is a security risk and should only be done as a last resort.
