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.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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