Site Access

My company intranet web site is accessible through a standard URL:

I am assuming that somewhere, it is defined that gets resolved into an internal web address.

When I go into IIS, it tells me that the website is called:

Is it possible to access the website through the ip address, and if so, how do I determine what that address is?

For example, say my address was

Could I access it through ?

That did not work, so I am trying to figure out how this thing works.

I was told that you can access through web address.

There are also network shares defined to that can lead to the default.aspx web page, and I tried copying the complete path into the browser, but that didn't work either.

Please review the bindings on that site in IIS manager to see if there is a host header name set.

I figured it out myself but I'll give credit for the taking stab at it.  the bindings revealed port number.   if you use that works.
you can also use the server name.
the key thing is to give port number.  that would have been the best answer.
