Can't open IIS website from the server 2003 system on which it is hosted

I have an intranet site  that I host on Windows 2003 machine that is running IIS 6.0. We manage access through file permissions so that not all internal people can access it. My access works fine, but when I try to access the site from the actual server it is hosted on it doesn't work.
I open IE and enter http://intranetsitename and I get prompted for credentials. If I enter my credentials it doesn't work.
If I enter the IP of the site instead of by the name then it works fine. Any ideas what is going on?

add your site to trusted domain, if it is still does not work, then try checking your server hardening setup.

I rememver there is one hardening step, which prevent your from opening your websites locally
