You’ve upgraded to IE 7 and now FrontPage won’t save your userid and password when publishing to remote servers

The fix that worked for me has two parts:

1. Bring up your remote site in IE 7. Then go to Tools > Internet Options > Security > Trusted Sites > Sites and Add your site to the list. Then Close > Apply > OK. You may need to restart IE 7 for this to take effect.

2. In IE 7, Tools > Internet Options > Security > Trusted Sites > Custom Level > User Authentication > Logon > Automatic logon with current Username and password and then OK your way back out.

Thanks, I needed that. Since I went on IE7 and Vista, I’d been wondering what (in the) happened, as every time I publish in FP Office 2003, the log in field comes up with the warning “danger! your server is requesting your user name and password in an unsecure setting – area …” something like that.
