I just got a laptop with Microsoft XP Professional and have installed IIS 5.1. (Came with OS). I am trying to set it up at home where I am always connected to the internet on broadband. I cannot get localhost to work. Please help. I have installed and uninstalled and reinstalled IIS. I have tried starting and stopping the services. I have to have this for an application to work for my job. What else do I need to try? I have Internet Explorer 6, service pack 2. I have even tried reinstallin OS.
