Frontpage and Windows XP Professional

These instructions are for logging into Frontpage on a machine running
Windows XP Professional

How do I know which Operating System I have?
Hold the Start Key (Between the left Ctrl and Alt Key) and hit Pause/Break (near Num Lock)  to find out which operating system your computer has.
A window will pop up with information on your system.

Start Frontpage

On the Menu bar choose FILE>OPEN SITE    or  FILE>OPEN WEB (older versions)


Click "My Network Places" or "Web Folders" at the bottom...

Next to site name enter the address you wish to edit.  Typically this address will be provided in an email.  Make sure to start the address with http://  or it will not work.


If you are on-campus your site will probably open without a password because of your initial login to the network.

If you are off-campus or are prompted for password:
Enter your SALISBURY\ and then your username in box for username.
NOTE: This is the \ slash below the backspace and not the usual / by the shift key.
Enter your synchronized password as the password.  (see example picture below)

If the password box pops back up: (This is only for www.salisbury.edu addresses)
This is the tricky part.  There is a quirk in the system which should be repaired in the fall semester.  In the interim:

Hit OK to the password box once.  When it comes back hit cancel on the second time.

 - If you get an error stating "The server could not complete your request."  then most likely your password entered was wrong.  You can check your password by synchronizing it at:

If the Open Site box is still there hit Open.
If the Open Site box disappears go to the OPEN SITE or OPEN WEB and type in the address again and hit open.  Your site should open.  It sounds odd and we are sorry for the trouble.
