dynamic asp / aspx not processed
I am a true novice to aspx or asp.
I install iis v6 on a winxp.sp3 pc. According to the services iis admin is started and in iis manager default website is running. However using firefox to browser a aspx or asp file in the default folder shows no processing of the line <%Response.Write(Now())%>.
Please help to cross this first simple hurdle.

I think the reason is i did not place my aspx files in the physical directory which is setup as virtual directory with an alias.
By the way what should i put to replace the <ip> in the link as suggested in a certain article http://<ip>/mywebsite/my.aspx. Is it not localhost:/mywebsite/my.aspx.
Please help, stuck!

Found the problem:
The root directory for the iis is in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot.
Once .asp in it, the server acts on the asp in browsing for iis 5.1.
Yet to check on iis 6 for .aspx. Do you think iis v6 will process .aspx?
