localhost problems on lan
Posted on 2004-09-18
Hiya. I am trying to get IIS running on my machine, but it seems to have been affected by networking the machine.
It is running Win XP Pro.
I connect to a router, giving me an ADSL connection; however I want to test websites locally. All that happens when I try localhost or 127.0.0.1 is that a blank page loads up, or the operation times out. inetmgr recognises that the website is running, but still no luck.
The router is a mentor adsl one 4 port, and my machine is connecting fine to the internet.
Any help gratefully appreciated.
