Getting restore of sharepoint server working

Taken a copy of our virtual sharepoint server and moved to another backup machine on a test network.

It all seems to be running. BUT I cant access sharepoint via the web interface. ( I did have to change server IP though).

I've tried http://<server IP> but nothing. Obviously the http://hostname is not going to work because the dns server is not available.

What to check first? I can't even seem to access on local server using localhost (or server IP).

Any ideas?

Check bindings in IIS. The cloned server may still have the configuration of the original server.

Ended up changing IP back to that of original sharepoint server and it all worked ok then.
