It sounds to me like you haven't enabled access on the common port for HTTP requests port 80. Have you set the server to a different port and not changed the conf files?

Nothing is wrong on the server side because I tested it, it seems to be something with front page. I took a look at the frontpage.ini but I coudlnt figure out what to do with the ports.


Could you post the ini file here for me and I will take a look or alternatively email it to me at,
