hello all:

i used frontpage for several months several years ago. i have front page
2002. i have a need to use it again, but i guess i am as dumb as a stump.

i can not seem to open anyexisting website i try. i can create a new site,
and then go back to it.. but any site that exists and i am trying to access
for the first time is a no go. i go to File->Open Web. The "look in:" is
set to My Network Places. I type in the site name (i have tried all
variations: just the domain name without"www.", with "www." and with
"http://www.", even tried ftp.domainname.com. i always get the follow
message:

"The folder 'www.somedomainname.com' isn't accessible. The folder may be
located in an unavailable location, protected with a password, or the
filename contains a / or \."

The worst part is the F^*%^$& annoying sound it has made the 1000 times i
have tried. i am sure i am just in the wrong place , or have some setting
wrong.

yes, i know i need a user name and password.. it never gets that far to ask.

i have turned off the entire McAfee Security Center and still no go.

i am ready to put i bullet in my head.. thanks in advance for your help.

signed, jethro bodine
