Default beginning dreamweaver mx

greetings

I wonder if anyone can help me with the IIS server
installation procedure for windows 2000.

I have followed all the steps in chapter 1 of beginning dreamweaver mx and it seems to have installed OK.

c:\inetpub\wwwroot and the localstart.asp all are in
their correct places on my machine. In the control
panel\admin tools\services the wwwpublishing icon says
started.

However typing http://localhost/localstart.asp does
nothing except tell me a combination of - not
connected to the web - do i want to work offline, then
nothing happens or the page cannot be displayed or
cannot find the server.

If I do file open in my web browser i can browse for
the asp page and open it

My browser does not seem to recognise the
http://localhost/localstart.asp - any ideas why?

regards

steve lampon

I had the same problem AFTER I installed Service Pack 3 for Windows 2000. When I uninstalled SP3, which was giving me a bunch of problems anyway, everything was OK.
Hope this helps.

Hi there,

What happens when you right-click the localstart.asp page in the IIS Management Console? Can you see the file there? (You can find the Internet Information Services MMC in the Administrative tools of the Start Menu or Control Panel).

If the file is there, right click it and choose browse and see what happens.

Other things to check:

1. Connections in Internet Explorer. Check the Internet Options dialog and look at your connections. Try disabling any Proxy Server and check the other settings for both your connections as your LAN settings. Make sure it doesn't use a proxy for the local intranet.

2. Make sure you don't have a firewall block incoming connections on port 80. Stuff like Norton Internet Security or Zone Alarm may block your local webserver.

3. Make sure you don't have another webserver (Apache for instance) running on the same port.

4. Make sure there is no check for the "Work Offline" menu item of the File menu in Internet Explorer.


What version of Windows 2000 are you running? How did you install IIS??

thanks for the reply

localstart.asp file is in the IIC console, if I r/click and browse it goes to a browser page and says page cannot be found.

Other points

1. have no proxy settings in the connections tab or LAN settings
2. Have no firewall (can I change the port settings as I now get bombarded with with spam mail when I am online!)
3. Have no other server software.
4. Work Offline is not checked

System - Windows 2000 ver 5.00.2195 with service pack 3

Sorry to be a pain - any other ideas?

Steve

Hmmm, I am almost out of ideas.

How about uninstalling, rebooting and then reinstalling IIS through the Add/Remove Programs part of Windows. Somehow, something seems messed up somewhere.

Are you running a Professional or Server edition of Win2K?

An open port 80 should not really get you spam mail during your on-line presence.

Now that you mention "when I am online", how do you connect to the web? Do you have a LAN card in you computer or just a modem? You may not have the proper TCP/IP settings for your network. If that's the case, make sure you either install a network card, or look for "loopback and connector" on the MSDN site.

Cheers,

Imar

Ah, yes, that's the problem. For IIS to function correctly, it needs the Client for Microsoft Networks installed. Check out the following article for more information and a resolution (Install the Microsoft Loopback Connector):
