Problems with uploading to PlusNet webspace with Frontpage?

Having problems with Frontpage 2002 uploads?

I recently wished to make use of the free webspace that PlusNet provided with their accounts. I already had Microsoft Frontpage 2002 installed on my computer so, I thought, as PlusNet advertised that they supported Frontpage extensions I would use that program.

The web building was easy enough with Frontpage, but when it came to transferring the files to the Frontpage server I was met with all sorts of problems. So much so, that I expect the guys at Technical support were fed up of me!!

I kept getting the message that the server I was trying to connect to - fp.ewancuuningham.plus.com - didn't have Frontpage extensions installed, when clearly it did.

Finally the solution was provided by PlusNet support (Gary) to disable my antivirus software (in my case Nortons Antivirue 2005) - and hey presto - the transfer went like a dream.

Have a look at www.ewancunningham.plus.com to see the results

Good Luck
Ewan

Nice little web site Smiley
The tip about anti virus mucking up the upload to the fp server is useful information for anyone having problems in the future.
Thanks for posting that. Cool
