I'm trying to do some testing with IIS7 and I'm running several public accessed websites on IIS6. In testing before the switch, I discovered something that I can't figure out how to do... in both IIS6 and IIS7.
All sites on IIS6 are listing on port 80 but with different identities (bindings). It works fine, but if I wanted to access either old or new IIS servers to look at the various sites by typing the machines IP address or on the server by typing "http://localhost
" all we see is the default web site. How can I specify a specific website I'm interested in testing.
for example, I tried: http://localhost:80:mysite.com
--- get an error on the local host.
if on another machine I type http://xx.xx.xx.xx:80:mysite.com
it defaults back to default web site.
Is there a way to do this, and if so, what is it?
