Cannot view ASP pages on a VMWare server

Server details:
VMWare running Server 2003 R2 SP1
IIS 6.0
.NET 1.1 and 2.0 intalled
ASP.NET installed

For some reason I cannot view asp pages on this Virtual server.  The only error message I receive is "page cannot be displayed".  Nothing in the event viewer and nothing else in the browser with "show friendly messages" disabled.  I can view .html pages just fine.  I have ASP.NET 1.1 and 2.0 allowed in the Web service extensions along with Active Server Pages.  Permissions seem to be set correctly, identical to IIS on my physical server.  Anything else?  Is there something special for VMWare servers?

I don't have a good answer for you other than to tell you that I do that frequently in vmware servers and there isn't anything you specifically have to do in vmware.  Your IIS settings seem correction (the web services extensions is what always gets me).  I know their logging and troubleshooting is next to non-existent, but check your logs, and check your application pool.

This is maybe an small issue with the bridging and networking. I had similar issues when the spanning-tree was unable to determine the network address from the virtual server and all packets went wrong. This usually is a result of using Linksys (unmanaged switches) and ZyXEL (all sorts of).

Ya, its definitely something preventing asp pages from running.  I'm sure you've double checked the web service extensions in the IIS control panel, but I'd check them again.  It could be a permissions problem on the DLL that is used to run them.  Did you install anything like visual studio that might have messed things up?

Never figured it out, installed a new server from scratch in VMWare with no problems.  I'm guessing that whoever created the original VMWare server that this was copied from had some major problems.  I would like a refund for points please.
