I am having the following problems with password protected sites:

When I set the password up in the Properties Section and then download the site everything appears to be ok.......But when I open the site in Offline Explorer's browser I have to enter a logon and password, and I get stuck there when browsing the site offline.....Document not Found then appears on the screen.....even though I select "Download" missing link" I get nowhere......

Once again I need your help...

You needn't bother opening the site in Offline Explorer's browser if you are just trying to get the data

from a protected site. Just use the "USE THIS USER NAME AND PASSWORD
to log on to web and password protected sites."

Also do you have your directories set to 'load files from all directores'?

I think, the best way for such site is to logon it first using the Internal browser and then start downloading. Only please disable loading logout links.

You mention that I should disable "Loading Logout Links", I could not find the field to do that, where is it located......

Oleg, when I close Offline Ex and then reopen it, and then try to open the password protected url I thought that I would be able to open it again, but no it is asking for the password again......did I miss something............

Here is teh tutorial for your case:

You need to browse to the logon page of the site using the internal Browser of Offline Explorer Pro .

If you need to download the site immediately and only once, you can proceed with the logon and begin downloading the desired pages using Offline Explorer Pro . The program will use the session cookies of the logged on site from the internal browser.

You can also record the logon form contents in a Project, so that Offline Explorer Pro will know how to log itself on whenever you wish to download the site. This is useful when you want to schedule the site download or perform it later, or if you want to update the downloaded site in the future.

Once you have entered your username and password on the logon page in the internal browser, press and hold the Alt + Ctrl keys on your keyboard, click the Logon (or Submit) button in the Web form and release the keyboard buttons. You should get a new Project that contains the Web form information recorded in the URL field.

Adjust the Project settings as you wish (set the Level and other parameters) and click the OK button to save the Project. You may begin downloading at any time.

Note: The form recording method is supported only in the Pro and Enterprise editions of Offline Explorer.

Oleg.
