asp_webserver thread: Default page shows in IIS


Message #1 by "StephenB" <stephenb@w...> on Fri, 1 Dec 2000 16:12:16 -0000
From JDWatts [jdwatts@b...]



I am reading your book and am unable to have my browser (I.E 5.0)



connect thought IIS. I am running Win 2000 Pro SP1. My computer is named



5fkun and I very carefully reviewed the assignment of a virtual path (test1)



to a physical path where I have Default.htm. When I enter



http://5fkum/test1 the browser responds with the following



http://5fkun/IISSamples/Default/welcome.htm and displays



"Welcome to Microsoft® Personal Web Server 4.0 This home page is hosted on



Microsoft Personal Web Server (PWS) 4.0. PWS turns any computer running



Windows® 95 or Windows 98 into a Web server and enables instant publication



of personal Web pages......"



I checked to make use IIS 5.0 is up and running and it is. I have the same



problem on my portable Wins 2000 pro which is not connected to the internet



and I get a page not found and ask me if I want to connect to the internet



or stay offline. I have also stopped and restarted IIS 5.0 with no luck.



Can you give me some clue on an analysis path so that I can trouble shoot



this problem? Thanks Jim
