Hi,

I have IIS 5 setup on one machine on my network with a webpage running, it all works fine. The problem is that I can't access that page from another machine on the same network. It simply says cannot find web site. Does anyone know what could be wrong?

Thanks
Jon

From the other machine you should be using http://machinenameofwebsitehost/pagename.aspx

It gets more complex if you're trying to create an internal web site such as assigning an IP address to the site and then using a host configuration so the new site can be found, etc. As I said, it can get complex unless you are just creating a virtual directory in IIS on the host machine.
