I have recently installed a SBS 2003 Server.

It by default installed a company web site called "companyweb"

For some reason it has stopped working.

I have the Default Web Site and Company web assigned to the same network card on the machine but different ssl ports, but the same web port.

If i stop the default web site, the companyweb still won't work.

i'd like to take a better look at the site, but can't get it to work.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Patrick

When you say 'won't work' what exactly do you mean?

Are there any error messages?

Is any kind of response returned to the browser?

Are there any Event Log warnings or errors?

Kinda hard to tell what is wrong without some idea of what is is doing.....  :-)

It sounds as if you have DNS problems.
Open your TCP/IP properties on your client box and check what is the IP of your DNS server ( if you're using ISP's DNS set alternative DNS to be your server and primary DNS your ISP's DNS).
That should do it.

I had to restart the server today.

And after rebooting it started to work again.

Thanks for the help.
