Hi Experts,

Plz help me understand why I'm not able to manage my IIS.

On my box, I've a Win2k Server w/ MS SQL 2K and
Visual Studio .Net 2003 w/ Verizon DSL running
through my ethernet.

I'm able to access the internet: etc.

However, when I tried to access my localhost:

http://localhost/ - default address for localhost

I get the infamous 'Page Cannot be Found' error.

I'm not able to access IIS through the 'Administrative Tool'.
When I click on it it just hangs - hour glass.

I tried using MMC to add the IIS console, and it did the same.

So, I went to 'Add/Remove' program and checked to see if
the IIS component is installed. It is.

Plz help me as I don't know what to do next.

Plz be patient w/me as I'm not a strong network person.

Appreciate all replies, and thanks in advance !
