Hi there,
I started the IIS Default Web Site on our Windows 2000 Server.
Our server have the following informaion:
Host name: MAIN
IP: 10.0.0.10
ASP.NET 2.0 Installed

In the "MAIN" server itself when I try:
http://localhost/iishelp/iis/misc/default.asp
It works fine

But from the "MAIN" server itself again or from any other PCs connected to it, when I try:
http://main/iishelp/iis/misc/default.asp
or
http://10.0.0.10/iishelp/iis/misc/default.asp

It failes:
You are not authorized to view this page (HTTP 403.6 - Forbidden: IP address rejected)

I checked several thinks (Anynomous acces, IP restriction), everything is setup correctly.

Any idea about this.

Thanks in advanced
Salan

Hi PeteLong,
I checked the parameters you talked about, and I saw everything was setup as what sould be. But the thing that I found the following users in the Security "Access this computer from the network"
FCCI/IUSR_MAIN
FCCI/IWAM_MAIN
and those was already there.
But I found also these users:
IUSR_MAIN
IWAM_MAIN
Which are not define in the Security,
So I add them to the Security (but I don't know why I have duplicated IUSR and IWAM users)

But, can I avoid restarting the system? because our server is critical.

Thanks

YOu can try restarting the www services (start > run >services.msc)

But I think you need a roboot to fire up the application pools with the correct service logon

Thanks PeteLong,
Now it's working fine.
Actually, the problem was on what I am testing
I mean wwwroot folder could be accessed by everyone in the network, but my test which is:
http://localhost/iishelp/iis/misc/default.asp

iishelp in fact is virtual path that refers to the folder "c:\winnt\help\iishelp" and this folder could not be accessed by everyone in the group. So, I created an ASP web site for testing only in the wwwroot folder and everything was fine.

Thanks for your help.
