hi,
i have a server in a webfarm running windows 2000 SRV with different websites. For some reason I can't reach the website anymore by entering the IP address in my browser, only by using it's actual DNS. Before, we were able to do this. What could be the cause of this?

Thanks, Tim

A host header was configured for the web site. In the IIS administration, open the web site's properties and open the additional options for the web site identification. You will see the IP address, port and host header name(s) where the website is bound to.
