can't browse to non-default website on intranet
Posted on 2008-10-13
Newbie question. I have a home lan set up, with Windows server 2008 as domain controller with IIS 7.0, and the client computer running XP Pro.
On the client, I can browse to the default web site (which has a static IP 192.168.0.6) with no problem, but after I created a non-default web site, with IP = 'All UnAssigned', I ran into problems. I can view the default web page of the non-default web site as localhost, on the server machine (by hitting 'Browse Web Site in the IIS manager). However, on the client computer, I don't even know what URL to punch in.
When I tried using the same IP as the default web site, but set the port to :81, I got an HTTP 400 error when trying to view the default file, index.html. (after opening the firewall to port 81).
I'm trying to figure out how to make the port method work, but I'd also like to know another way. I think I saw something about exceptions and headers.
