I can't figure this out, so I think I'll toss it at you guys to see what you think.

I have an IIS 6 running on 2K3.

HTTPERR1.log states
N 127.0.0.1 2565 127.0.0.1 80 HTTP/1.1 GET / 400 - Hostname -
N 127.0.0.1 2565 127.0.0.1 80 HTTP/1.0 GET / 400 - Hostname -

Indicating it doesn't like the hostname. I don't get it, as I'm requesting this page locally on the server using "http://localhost".

Trying the IP, hostname gives the same.

What do you think?

In the default website properties check to which ip is the IIS binded.Make sure its is ALL Unassigned
Check this artilce by MS
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/842693

Check you are not running any firewall or Internt Security Applications which closes port 80 on the server

Try to telnet to your port 80 and see if you a re gettign a blank black screen.

If that does not rectify your problem you can try wfetch.exe to troubleshoot the error.you can get a details from this one

make sure your IIS is working first .u can try iisreset at  the command prompt
