I am having a problem publishing to our FTP site having just loaded XP pro.
Old 98 just let you right click and "send to"
Can any one tell me how to publish to our Freeserve hosted site?
Thanks in advance

Open your internet options (from Internet Explorer, click tools, its at the bottom.
1. Under 'Security' tab, click on 'custom level', then scrol down to the bottom, under 'User Authentication' make sure "Promt for user name and password" is chosen.
2. Under 'Advanced' tab, under 'Browsing', check the box "Enable folder view for FTP sites".
3. Under 'Advanced' tab, under 'Browsing', you may need to check the box labeled "Use Passive FTP (for firewall and dsl modem compatibility)" if applicable...
4. Under 'Advanced' tab, under Security, try changing "Enable Windows integrated authentication (requires restart)"
try changing these options and see if it clears your trouble. Also, f you have a software based firewall running, such as from Zone Labs, it may need to be uninstalled to open the ftp ports on Win XP Pro. (regardless of your firewall settings...buggy)
Simply go into your dialup connection properties, (I am doing this from memory so please forgive me if I am wrong) The last tab (I think that it is Advanced) there is a tick box that says enable firewall. Untick it you should then be able to ftp. If you still want a firewall there are other products about that give you more control over what you can and can't send.
hope this helps
I have tried this , but I still only get the option to post to X-drive plus
The "enable Windows Integrated Authentication" button was ticked, so I presume you meant to un-select this option.
Could not find Enable firewall box in Advanced selection options?
Any further suggestions? Please...
Maybe you could try this.
Open Internet Explorer, in the address bar type "ftp://your_domain_or_ip", then enter, you should get a promt for your user name and password. You can select to auto login if its safe, such as your the only user of this computer or you trust others, etc. This should give you the folder view for your site. Then select 'Favorites from the menu and add this url to your favorites. When you need to copy a file to your site (like the old send_to), just right click the file and select copy. Click your shortcut in your favorites menu to your ftp site. Then just right click on the open ftp site (your site) and select paste. This will accomplish the same thing as before.
If you still have troubles, try talking to your ISP/web site host and see if they can spot the trouble.
This [creativelement.com] utility has the ability to add an 'ftp_to' for the right click menu for single or multiple files. Just what you had before...
After you install, you have a shortcut in your start menu. When run, scroll down the list and check the ftp utility. Then you see a link unter that to add your ftp server to the list of ftp sites you need to use.
Hope that helps...
Other good features as well, I like the 'find duplicate files' or change dates on files, etc.
This ftp program works brilliantly and intergrates into XP pro with no problems.
One thing that has changed, our index page, which previously defaulted to our base URL ( called "index" )now is in a sub directory
Any one know how I can get this to default to the base URL
What I have noticed is that the page I am using for the index was re-named to upper case INDEX.HTML (I had edited with word, prior to loading frontpage, think this may have done this?)
Will the upper case label make the server not recognise this as my ftp root?
I can change the "INDEX" to "index" but do not seem able to alter the "HTML" to lower case when saved.
Is this significant to servers?

How can I edit the way frontpage now stores the page name/
If you navigate to your to c:\inetpub\wwwroot (or wherever your web home on your computer is), try to rename your index.HTML to index.html - If you only see index as the file name you need to do the following:
Now you should be able to rename the index.HTML file to all lower case. For consistency, I try to keep all file names lower case when possible.
