Default Please help me, someone!!!! Cannot find server ; T

Please help me, someone!!!!

I am posting here, because the book said that maybe some of these forums could help me... (I'm very sorry if I am posting to the wrong forum--if so, I would be very thankful to be directed to the correct forum for this...)

I have Windows XP Professional, with Server Pack 1a
installed. After I installed Server Pack 1a, I installed
IIS 5.1.

I have used IIS in the past (but never on XP), so I was
surprised when I checked to see if all web services were
started--and they were--and when I pinged my machine name
(which is "elephant") and learned that all 4 packages
were received, and then, I receive the following error
when I enter http://elephant or http://localhost or
http://172.0.0.1 in the IE 6.0 location box:

Title on html page is:

Cannot find server

Body of html page begins with:

The page cannot be displayed

I have checked the properties for the documents in IIS
and all of those pages are in the correct directory--in
other words, everything seems to be mapped correctly.


McAfee Firewall is disabled. There are no other firewalls
enabled.

I have been troubleshooting this for 3 days--any help is
appreciated. (I plan to activate a .NET trial version,
but do not want to until I get this resolved.)

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide.

Anne

Maybe you just don't have any default page set up.

Have you checked:
1. what files are in c:\inetpub\wwwroot?
2. in Internet Services Manager (do you know where to find this in XP?) to see what web sites have been set up?

BTW localhost is 127.0.0.1 not 172.0.01

Allowed Directory browsing, if no default page is specified, this will display all the files of home directory

I had the same problem, and finally went to Microsoft where I paid $99 to get the answer: This is the answer I got - which solved the problem:
1. Cleared the "Show Friendly HTTP error message" option in IE -> Internet Options -> Advanced tab, and then got error in browser "No Web Site is configured on this address".

2. From Internet Information Services MMC snap-in, check the configuration for Default Web Site, and it is configured on 192.168.0.101.

3. In command prompt: Use "ipconfig /all" command to show IP configuration, found only 192.168.0.100 is configured for this machine.

4. Change the Default Web Site configuration from 192.168.0.101 to "All Unassigned".

Now it works.
This has been frustrating me for a long time.
I had installed Apache server back when I only had XP home, and that really messed things up.

Just to check with you all, is it possible for IIS to map a server drive to network folder? i wanted to try this, but will other users be able to view the results on their own desktops when browsing through the intranet provided by the server?

i'm a beginner, hoping to learn more.. please help... thanks a lot
