Unable to Connect to localhost


W

White Rabbit

When I go into Internet Explorer 6 and type in
http://localhost or 127.0.0.1 or 192.168.1.100 it clicks
and sais done but the little flag on the top window keeps
moving and the page is never displayed. I have tried
using IIS 5 and bad blue to host a web page but neither
work. I have tried selecting and unselecting
automatically detect connection and tried to reinstall
IIS 5.
I can ping my localhost but not connect. I cant connect
through my DNS name either.
I have ICS turned off and no norton firewall or any other
fierwall.

Any Sugestions?

Hi,

Try to create a small site and see if it works. do the
following steps.

1. go to the folder c:\inetpub\wwwroot\ and then create a
folder called testiis
2. open notepad and then type this lines
<%@language=vbscript%>
<%Response.write "The time is " & Now() %>


3. save the file as default.asp (note the extension).

Now create a virtual directory using this folder testiis
and name it testiis.

type this in the browser
http://localhost/testiis/deafult.asp

If you are able to see the time on the browser or the
page has executed it means that IIS is working.

If you are still getting errors get back to us and we
will see what has to be done. also please note down the
errors that u get.
