    Unhappy problem connection with localhost using IIS


    I got the same problem! Im using Win XP Pro SP2 , IIS V5.1, McAfee Full Protection Package. Whenever I try to display the defaultwebsite localstart.asp page or any website which I created as test web pages on internet explorer, the connection is not established and an error message that the page cannot be found is dispalyed.

    As address on internet exploere I use:- http://localhost/myApp
    just for an example but it still does not work! I also tried by typing in
    :- http://127.0.0.1/ but still nothing happened, but then when I ping 127.0.0.1 on command prompt everything is fine!

    Can anyone help please

    - were you administrator when you installed IIS?
    - Are you using NTFS?
    - Is the www service running?
    - Do you run software firewall? (disable for testing)
    - Do you run antivirus script blocking? (disable for testing)

    Now you’re getting pretty technical. Please explain the below in layman’s terms.
    - were you administrator when you installed IIS?
    - Are you using NTFS?
    - Is the www service running?
    - Do you run software firewall? (disable for testing)
    - Do you run antivirus script blocking? (disable for testing)
