I have a server running Windows Small Business Server 2003 and, of course, IIS 6. I am running in a domain called CGOC. I set up a website on the server and I can access ON the server, but anywhere else on the network I get the error message "Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)".

Any help?

Is the server's address configured in DNS?

It is, but even if I punch in the IP address on the server itself, I get the same problem.

just check the event logs if it shows a list of 400 errors? if so, please go check and make sure if your default website IP address is the external IP, maybe you have a wrong setting at here.

Thanks! I explicitly assigned the IP address instead of using the (any available) setting.
