I want to use Interdev on my machine to develope web sites.  I have downloaded the option pack and my server is running.  However, Interdev 1.0 no longer can connect with my server on an existing project or in attempting to create a new project.  I can go to the site in Management Console and run the asp's.  I did rename the machine but I had this problem before doing that. I have re applied service pack 3.  My server is configured with an IP address of 127.0.0.1 on TCP port 80.  Help would be appreciated.

I have seen this at work also and am unclear as to how we cleared it up.

Try out these:
1. Wack the FP server extensions completely deleting all _v.*
files and directories and reinstall new (if you changed anything to do with domains - this is probably it)  try temporarily giving the IUSER_yourcomputername in winnt matches the IUSER_account in the iis anonymous login authentication

2. IP Static Map to new computer host name
detail on number 1
get to a dos/console command prompt and type: ping localhost<enter>
if this comes back to 127.0.0.1 you are ok with tcpip
then type: ping yourcomputernamehere <enter>
see if you get a response to 127.0.0.1 or a different ip number
whatever number you get - write it down
open the file \\winnt\system32\drivers\ect\hosts
with a text editor and below the entry: 127.0.0.1    localhost
type in: thenumberyouwrotedown  yourcomputername
close and save
do the pinging again and see if your browser connects

I actually got things to work be reloading the option pack software but I wanted to thank you for the answer.  I am not fully sure it would have worked but it sounds like valuable reference for the future.

What if you are using one machine, and IIS is on another machine?

Thanks, I have it working now because this was a year ago.  It was a pain, I swear they corrected service pack 4. SHODDY
