Redirect Loop in Firefox and IE when debugging AbleCommerce in VS 2005

I'm running a dev copy of AbleCommerce on my local machine. Accessing it through IE or FF via localhost works fine. But if I access it via the IDE or via the browser and specify the IDE dev server using localhost:2206, I get the redirect loop.

I'm running ASP.NET 2.0 with AJAX Extensions 1.0 and all of my web.config versions are correctly set to Version=1.0.61025.0. This article (http://www.bestwebsites.co.nz/dotnetnuke/solving-the-dotnetnuke-redirect-loop/) didn't help me because I couldn't locate the correct assembly to increase it's trust level to full.

Can someone explain what I need to do to increase the trust level?
Alternatively, can I run the IDE dev server without a port number?

Or are there other suggestions? Thanks in Advance.

I must have originally opened my project as a file system web site. According to VS Help for a project's start options:

Use default Web server
- For file system Web sites, Visual Web Developer launches the ASP.NET Development server.
- For local Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Web sites, Visual Web Developer makes a request using the URL used to open the site.
- For remote Web sites, Visual Web Developer makes a request using the URL of the remote site.

All I had to do was close the project, re-open it using File | Open Web Site and choose the Local IIS option. That fixed it.

This issue was semi-specific to AbleCommerce because their development license is specifc to an ip address. So my "localhost" dev license (for IIS requests) didn't work for my "localhost:2206" dev server requests.
