Can't connect to local inTRAnet

Can't connect to local inTRAnet

Hi there,

I'm in a quandry.  I am at a client's office, have VI installed on a networked workstation (win2k pro), connects successfully to projects outside, but I can't get VI to find the intranet here. I've used the IP address, name of the server, etc.  The intranet is functioning properly because I've created a site on it, but I have to work in notepad instead of vi.  Any thoughts would be very much appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Error message: Unable to contact web server http://blah

RE: Can't connect to local inTRAnet

I had problems with FrontPage Server Extensions 2002.  I ran the configuration wizard and it's working alright now.  I also unchecked the box in tools/options, under web proxy settings and unchecked the box that says "do not use proxy server for local (intranet) addresses"
