Hi Scott,

That's a tough one to answer. Obviously, you don't want your external
users to have the ability to edit an open issue, and there's a possibility
that there are issues open for internal products that you don't want them to
see. Bug.asp and Bugs.asp will require a user to log in or they won't work
properly. That pretty much leaves the knowledge base as the only
publicly-available source of information that an external user can't tamper
with.

The only way that this is going to work is if you 'roll your own'
ASP/ADO solution to allow a crude search and display of a recordset of
matching bugs to the external user.

Regards,
