Port 80 Error

Port 80 Error

Port 80 Error

I've seen this over the years time and time again but no one has a clear solution. I can ftp no problem but cannot publish without getting a "server does not exist" port 80 error. I've tried everything in existence including reinstalling FP to different computers and different operating systems, installing reinstalling frontpage extensions, turning off/uninstalling firewall, calling my provider to see if 80 was blocked, my webhost...no help...MS says it could be anything.  I am testing a simple 1 page website that will sometimes load, sometimes not. I would appreciate any suggestions. Again ftp is no problem, publish causes the error.

RE: Port 80 Error

Great idea but my problem is not with ftp. I can use frontpage to load 100's of files. The problem lies when I try to publish. I understand from my host that if I ftp the whole site then fP extensions will have to be reinstalled. I created a one-page website, deleted the old from the server, reinstalled frontpage extensions and tried to 'publish'. That is where the error occurs. If it goes quickly, I don't get the error ...sometimes I can publish without incident. If I try to do any publishing where it compares time/date stamps and it takes a little time, it errors out on port 80 for http://....works for ftp but not http. I called my provider and port 80 is not blocked. I called Norton and they uninstalled my firewall/virus software so I could eliminate that problem. I'm getting some sort of false Port 80 block but I have no http problems anywhere else.  I will try your site suggestions...and thank you!

RE: Port 80 Error

I've only ever uploaded to the site using ftp: I've never used http.  In fact, the only website course I went on the lecturer said that http didn't work and we ought to use ftp.  That was in 2003.  I don't think MS has fixed the problem.
