Frontpage / NT permissions

By Corky132 ·
Here's the deal. NT 4.0, frontpage 2000. IIS 4.0.. I create a user that belongs to the domain users group. I create a web in IIS, with clear text authentication checked (only one checked). When i open it in frontpage (as the administrator) and give the new user administer and author permissions, he is not able to open the web in frontpage. If i move him into the administrator group, he gets in.. He has permission to the web, but for some reason he's not getting in.. what the heck am i doingwrong?

Frontpage / NT permissions

By having permission to the web, do you mean he has permissions to the NTFS permissions on that particular web folder as opposed to just his user account having permission to the share? That could be the problem. Also, if the domain users group isset as No Access, it will override all other share permissions he may have to that folder. Hope this helps...

The folder is shared as a web folder. It doesnt show up as a regular share. Frontpage is supposed to handle the regular ntfs permissions.

Hey,

Browse to the new web's folder (i.e. c:\inetpub\wwwroot\<webfolder&gt right-click, hit properties & check the permissions. The user's account (or the Domain Users account) will need at least Read, Execute & Write permissions (or if you really want to give him access give him Full Control) on the entire folder. Be sure to select the "apply to existing files/folders" checkboxes if you have to change anything.

L8er,
Aaron

THE PROBLEM COULD BE YOU HAD NOT ASSIGNED
FILE PERMISSIONS. RIGHT CLICK ON THE FILDER
SELECT PROPERTIES, THEN SECURITY TAB, SELECT
PERMISSION TAB THEN ADD THE USER AND THE RIGHTS YOU WANT TO ASSIGN.

I guess my question would be is the directory on a drive using NTFS, if so I would check those permissions on the folder he is trying to access, otherwise you may want to recheck your IIS permissions, from IIS ADMIN, right click on your web, and select properties, make sure you dont have the permissions set for the administrators group to have access to the web only, this could also cause the problem.
