IIS6 which port to use?

Hi all,


I'm new to IIS6 and have just setup a webserver.


I've created my websites (four) with the default settings.  I can only run one at a time, i get the following error when i try to start another website.


"IIS was unable to start the site.  Another site may be using the port you configured for this site.  Please select a unused ort for this site"


I have a feeling its one of these, but am unsure....

* Does this mean i should configure another port and use PAT on my router; or
* Is the port the return port address?



thanks in advance.

Hi,

If you need to host multiple websites then you either need to use a different port, have more than one IP or configure Host Headers. Host Headers allow your webserver to send traffic to a particular site based on the name used to access it and are probably the most useful thing you can do with it.

To set it up simply open the Properties for the Website, click Advanced and add it under "Multiple Identies for this Website". The IP Address can remain "All Unassigned", and the Port 80, just add the name used to access the site there.
