#1: IIS7 - Localhost works, but machine name doesn"t, Why?

Posted on 2008-04-23 02:44:00 by Refresher

Hi,

I have Vista Ultimate and IIS7. When I go to:

http://localhost/

all is good.

However, when I go to http://my-machine-name/ on the same machine, I get

"Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

I enabled "World Wide Web Services (HTTP)" as an exception in the Windows
Firewall.

However, I am trying this on the same machine, not another machine on the
network or anything.

Also, the weird thing is, there was one time when I tried the machine name
and it worked -- however, I had to try localhost first, then try the machine
name. But I have not been able to reproduce this.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

I just noticed when I turn the Windows Firewall completely off, it seems to
work. But when it is on, it doesn't. But I have the World Wide Web Services
checked under exceptions.....Weird. Any thoughts?
