Problem accessing web site by IP address
I currently have a Windows 2008 Server running IIS 7, currently the sites running under IIs are running properly but have just installed a Web base program that runs a thin client for its web page. On the local server I can access the web page by going to [http://localhost/APFW/] but I can’t access it by going to
http://internal IP-Adddress/APFW/, I do notice that when the page comes up the URL changes to [http://localhost/APFW/default.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fapfw], are there any binding I need to connect in the application pools or any ideal how I should troubleshoot this?

Thanks

The site might have a binding to the loopback address only.

I would suggest opening the website in iis manager and editing the bindings to have it answer on the internal ip you want it to respond on:

run - inetmgr
click on the website (I am assuming you have a single website configured)
on the right click on edit bindings
Then select the port (port 80) click on the drop down box (IP Addresses) and  select all unassigned.

If you have multiple sites, then you need to select the IP you want to use for this.
