I recently set up an intranet webpage on a network using ISS. (HTTP://localhost/). I can access the webpage on all the network PC's appart from 1. Ive checked all the settings on the PC and, in theroy, theres no reason why i shouldnt be able to access the webpage. However i cant!

Anyone had this problem? How can i get it working?

Cheers,

Start with some trouble shooting. Can you Ping the IP address of the ISS server from the cranky PC? If so, then try to connect using "http://IP address" instead. If that works, then you probably have NetBios turned off in your network settings.

I can ping the PC, however when i type "http://server IP" into the address line i still cannot connect to the web page.

Do u know anything else i can try?

Since you can ping it, I would think it would have to be a problem with the client's browser. Is there a Proxy setting in the browser? If not, I'd try downloading a different browser like Firefox just to eliminate a browser issue.

The PC uses IE6, currently there are no proxy settings configured. The internet connection doesnt use a proxy, so how would this make a difference?

If there was a proxy configured, then I was thinking that perhaps the proxy was not handling local requests correctly. I'd try a different browser next.

Of course, instead of installing a browser, you could go to a command prompt and type "telnet <IP address> 80" and see if it connects.

Yea it does connect when i use "telnet", but how does this help?

Sorry, im more of a "network wizz," than an "internet wizz" so bare with me!

Now you've isolated the problem down to the browser being the cause. In other words, you know you have to fix Internet Exploder or replace it. Good luck fixing IE ;-) You could try the usual things like running Spybot and Adaware. Or just install Firefox from http://www.getfirefox.com

OK. ill see what i can do.

thanks 4 the help mate..
