IIS6 windows server 2003

I'm not very good with IIS6, and i have a website i'm trying to setup on my windows 2003 server that has IIS6
when i am on the server and right click on the default.asp file, IE finds and displays the webpage fine. on computers  on the same network if i put the ip of the server in IE, i get the http error 404 but the address changes to something completely different. So in IE i put

http://ipaddressofserver
and when i hit enter in the adress bar i get
http://completelydifferentip

i didn't think this would be a dns thing because i am using ipaddresses, but just in case i looked at my dns server and couldn't find this different ip address anywhere. so to make sure it isn't dns, i manually put in a bogus ipaddress for the dns on my winxp box, i went to a dos prompt and typed in
ipconfig /flushdns
then tried pinging
www.yahoo.com
and the address could be resolved, then i tried

http://ipaddressofserver
and when i hit enter in the adress bar i STILL get
http://completelydifferentip

any ideas where this completelydifferentip is coming from?

Is there a redirect in place on the site of the original IP?

JeffBeallAuthor Commented:
i found what is redirecting me
there are two default files, one is default.asp, the other is default.apsx
in the default.aspx it redirects to the other ip address
i didn't develop this website and know NOTHING about coding in asp, or aspx ( although i assume aspx is just new asp )
i experimented with removing the aspx file, but then the website just "hangs" i assume something makes it look for the default.aspx.
i tried changing the redirect aspx file to have with the same address as my server ( currently the aspx file redirects to some other server - i don't even know what server it is ) but it looks like the server gets caught in some sort of loop.
i don't know why it seems that this webpage needs a redirect anyhow. i would like to make it stop trying to re-direct but i, of course, don't know how.

Its tough to know why the redirect is in place without having access to the app.
