I just moved a phpBB 3.0 system over to a new server (all Windows Servers / not web servers on the internet).  I used the WAMP server on the system migrated from and migrated to.  On the new system, I can type in "localhost" in the browser and bring up the forum.

However, I'm missing something very simple and I just can't seem to find it.  Entering the actual server name into a browser, it returns a 403 error.  I thought it was related to IIS, so I disabled it.  

Any help, greatly appreciated.
