Forms


B

Brian Schoendorf

I created some forms using Frontpage 2003. They work great for me on our intranet, but then again I'm an administrator. When a regualr user accesses them and clicks the Submit button it prompts them for a ID and password. Since they're rather large forms to try and troubleshoot I created a simple one question form that writes to a text file in the _private folder. That does the same thing.
I've looked at pretty much every security setting I can see, but obviously I'm missing something. I'm using Windows authentication rather than anonymous access.
Any suggestions would be appreciated because I'm running out of ideas.
Thanks,
Brian/

Allow anonymous access - the FrontPage extensions
require access as the anonymous user (or web site
Administrator) for processing, and writes to the
_private folder as IUSR_machinename (where
machinename is the name given to the server box).
If anonymous access is not available for any
reason then move the form processing to PHP or
asp.NET which can then use a membership solution
for logon, and save form data to a database.
