    I have a user who seems to know his stuff...

    He's been talking about anonymous permissions on frontpage and has setup a subweb.

    His original question was....

    My Frontpage extensions are working except for one area. If I try to restrict anonymous browsing to a subweb, the admin page just shows an error. All other functions of the extensions work. I have tried un-installing the extensions and re-installing them.

    He also says....

    FP extensions uses an executable file called fpadmcgi.exe to run scripts and load pages when a user makes a reques. When I try and change the permissions, the particular part of this set of files that it needs is missing. The oage it is looking for is called anonusr.htm. This may be a page in its own right or embedded within fpadmcgi.exe


    Can anyone clarify that what he wants to do is actually possible in the linux version ? This is the first time anyone has ever asked about this and my knowledge on fp is virtually nil.

    Bump!, User is getting a bit pissed with me as i havent resolved his problem. Doers anyone have a straight forward answer to this ?

    I suppose the main question is the ability to "restrict anonymous browsing to a subweb".

    this is not a server issue it a FP issue your client should read his FP docs

    I just looked in /usr/local/frontpage/version 5.0 and the permissions on all the files are set to 555. Compared this against another server and they are 755 on there.

    Are there any files in the frontpage installation that need writing to ?
