Hi there,

I have a windows 2003 server running sp1 and all the latest updates. iis6 is installed and sharepoint services v2. The server also has 2 nics running 2 different subnets. The network is working fine and there are no browsing issues.

If i try to browse the shortcut for sharepoint admin ie http://localhost:xxxx it comes up with page cannot be found. If i type in the server name in its place ie http://servername:xxxx the page comes up without any problem.

If i try to ping 127.0.0.1 i do get a response.

The problem is we are running project server on this box and it is affecting the page and database connectivity.

Hope you can help.

Since you have 2 NICs then LocalHost refers to the one at the top of the binding order.  You have a choice:

1)  Move the other NIC to the top of the binding order then reboot.
2)  Attach to the IP you are serving up the pages on.
3)  Fix the site so it is All Unassigned rather than a fixed IP.
