About Fpremadm

The Fpremadm utility lets you administer the Microsoft® FrontPage® Server Extensions remotely from a Microsoft® Windows®-based PC. It has an interface based on the FrontPage Server Extensions administration utility, Fpsrvadm, and performs all of the same commands. Fpremadm requires Microsoft Internet Explorer 2.0 or later to be installed on the client computer. There is no UNIX version of this utility. However, you can use it from a Windows client to administer the FrontPage Server Extensions on UNIX-based Web servers.

Fpremadm uses the same server-side CGI or ISAPI program as the HTML Administration Forms: Fpadmdll.dll on IIS servers and Fpadmcgi.exe on all other servers. Because of this, you must install and activate the HTML Administration Forms on the server you want to administer before you can use Fpremadm.

When you use Fpremadm, you form the command line in the same way that you would with the Fpsrvadm utility, adding the Fpremadm arguments as in the following Upgrade command:

fpremadm.exe -adminusername UserAccount -adminpassword
-targetserver https://sample.microsoft.com:1439/fpadmin/scripts/fpadmdll.dll
-o upgrade -p 8234 -m sample.microsoft.com 

Note the use of a secured connection and a non-standard port.

Along with supporting the same set of commands as Fpsrvadm, Fpremadm includes the following additional arguments that set up the connection to the remote server:

 

Argument Description Sample values
-targetserver The full URL of the server-side administration program Fpadmdll.dll on IIS servers and Fpadmcgi.exe on all other servers. A URL string, such as:

https://sample.microsoft.com/fpadmin/
scripts/fpadmcgi.exe

For IIS and Microsoft Personal Web Server Web servers, the URL will be of the form:

https://sample.microsoft.com/fpadmin/
scripts/fpadmdll.dll

-adminusername The user name to authenticate for access to the administration program. This is not the same as the -username argument; it is the user name that is used to log on for access to Fpadmdll.dll or Fpadmcgi.exe. A user name, such as:

useraccount

This can be left blank if you are using
Windows NT® Challenge/Response
Authentication.

-adminpassword The password to use to authenticate access to the administration script. This is not the same as the -password argument; it is the password that is used to log on for access to Fpadmdll.dll or Fpadmcgi.exe. A password, such as:

787abC

This can be left blank if you are using Windows NT Challenge/Response Authentication.

 

For a full description of all the commands available through Fpremadm, see Fpsrvadm.
