Hello, I've deployed Virtual Server on numerous occaisons and have always got the same error. When installd, if i go to star\all programs\microsft virtual server\virtual server administration website  the browser opens and displays "400 Bad Request The website cannot display the page
 HTTP 500  
   Most likely causes:
The website is under maintenance.
The website has a programming error.  
The odd thing though, if i access the site remotely, it works just fine. It's just that i can't get to it locally?
Anyone any ideas?

Guess what - it just started working. Points awarded because you responded, thank you.
My issue is the exact opposite.  When I remote into the host server (from another machine using RDP on the same domain), then the menu item virtual server administration website returns a 500 error.  Even if I enter the same IP address I used to remote connect to the server instead of the server name, I get the same thing.  Yet the Virtual Machine Remote Control Client works just fine. Wot hooppened?
