Sharepoint - Receiving "Page can not be displayed" when accessing Sharepoint site

Hello all,

I am running SharePoint on Windows 2003 Small Business Server. Yesterday Sharepoint was operational. Today I am receiving a "Page can not be displayed" error when trying to browse the sharepoint site http://companyweb/. I checked that the world web web service is started and that the SQL service is started. I tried restarted both the WWW and SQL service. The companyweb site is started according to IIS manager. I restarted all the SharePoint sites that link with companyweb and companyweb itself. I'm at a loss as what else it can be. I must be missing something.

Have you tried using the system's internal IP address instead of the domain name. The problem may be that you are trying to access from an outside IP address and encountering a firewall problem.  Also, check that the client you are using has it's firewall software turned off while trying to connect.

We have Sharepoint, Exchange, and CRM running multiple websites running on the Windows 2003 SBS. Using the ip address gives me the CRM site. I can hit the Sharepoint administration site but not http://companyweb itself. The exchange OWA works by using the server name. The host headers look correct on the sharepoint side. The IP is mapped to the correct host header.

Try pinging companyweb from the SBS.  Alternatively, from a client, try nslookup for companyweb.

I tried pinging companyweb from then server. it did not find the itself. Also an nslookup returned a non-existent domain error. So do I add a cname record to DNS?
