America Online (AOL) uses unique proprietary dialer software. This article
describes several items you should keep in mind if you are using FrontPage
with America Online's Internet software.
NOTE: Microsoft support engineers do not troubleshoot America Online
connectivity issues through an America Online dial-up connection. This
article is provided for information purposes only.
You can download the latest version of America Online's Internet software
by connecting to the following World Wide Web site:
<WWLINK TYPE="GENERIC" VALUE="http://www.aol.com/try/">http://www.aol.com/try/</WWLINK>
If you are using FrontPage and America Online's Internet software, keep the
following in mind:
- You must have the latest 32-bit version of America Online's Internet
software, version 4.0 installed on your computer.
NOTE: America Online does not currently publish Internet software for
Microsoft Windows NT.
- You can publish your content by making a dial-up connection to AOL. You
will not be able to publish your content by using a TCP/IP connection.
- You must log on to America Online before you start any FrontPage
component. If you start FrontPage before you log on to America Online,
FrontPage will not be able to find the network, and you will not be able
to publish your content.
- To publish a Web, publish to members.aol.com. If you want to publish
your content root, leave the path field blank. If you want to publish to
a specific folder in your Web, specify a subfolder. You do not need to
specify your username as the folder path.
NOTE: When you use an FTP (File Transport Protocol) client, you need to
have an incoming folder to allow for any external software using
the FTP service to pass through the fire wall.
- Your username should be "anonymous" (without the quotation marks) and
the password should be "<AOL User Name>@aol.com"(without the quotation marks), where <AOL User Name> is your America Online log on account name.
NOTE: If this does not work, use your screenname for the User Name and your screenname password for the Password.
