Traffic on the SPS server

  Asked By: Jenny    Date: Apr 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 603

the server. But my system administrator doesn't want to install that

to correspond to file locations on the server.

It is not using FP that is the issue; it is the extensions  that need to be on the SPS server. If you were around when SPS first was available via betas and release candidates, many install  issues were answered with a check to see if FP extensions were on the machine.

i think FPSE and SPS do not cooperate at all. It is Sharepioint Team
Services that can be modified by help of FP and of coure FPSE. I am pretty
sure about that. Anybody correct me on that if I'm wrong.
