I am trying to test my asp.net 2.0 website through IIS on a local development machine (Windows XP, SP2). I cannot view my website using http://localhost/appname
but I can using the loopback, http://127.0.0.1/appname
. I have checked that IIS is configured to use port 80 as the default port. I tried to disable my Symantec firewall but it did not make a difference. I can ping localhost and it resolves correctly. Any suggestions? Thanks.
