Cannot view intranet site on Iphone

I have an iphone that connects to my wireless network.  I am able to view web pages on the internet and access file from one of my servers, but when I try to access my intranet page, a blank screen appears.

I found out the problem.  The domain is has the extension .local which apparantly does not work with iphone.

Perhaps the intranet page is not Safari compatible?  What kind of content is being served on this intranet page?

It is just html, and I have tested it using Safari.

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

Is the page on the same server that you are able to access files from?  Is your wireless network set up in a DMZ or is it internal to the network?

Are security permissions preventing the iPhone from reading the page?

The page is on the same server that I am able to access file from and the wireless network is set up as internal to the network.  I opened up security to grant everyone full control over the directory and it still did not work.

I'm almost at a loss.  

Is there any chance that it has opened the page but is zoomed in on a blank portion of the page?  Meaning you can pinch the screen to zoom out and see the rest of the page...

Glad you've identified it.  Seems I've heard issues before about domains with the .local extension...
