Frontpage and subdomain access

I have a client who uses Frontpage FP. He has set up a subdomain and enabled FP on it.

He wants to allow a different person NOT the admin access to this subdomain to up date the site using FP.

However, FP will only log in using the admin user and password. We have set up a separate FTP account for the new user but FP will only connect with admin log in.

Is there a way to make this work without using the admin user/pass?

Thank you,

Tom

There is no way you can create a separate user to give him an access of particular folder in FrontPage.

Thank you for the reply and for pointing out that it is NOT possible.

In order to use the features of Front Page you must use the admin username and password. I have tried many ways but never found one that worked but a client of mine said it was possible.

Thank you,

use a "subweb" for unique permissions

I think you CAN do what you want.

In FP, create a "subweb" for the desired subdomain.

In this new subweb, you can create new users with new permissions.

Tools.....Server.....Permissions...

That should work.

Regards.
