Default Testing your web server

I am a newbie and just obtained the book begining ASP 3.0. I was following the instructions on "how to test your web server" in the book. Anytime, I go to the MMC console and click on default web setting to right-click on "start" to start web publishing, I keep getting an error message which says "Address already in use". Any help will be greatly appreciated on how to resolve the problem.

To elaborate further on my situation. I have Oracle 9i installed on the same computer. Anytime, I type http://localhost, it brings up the Oracle HTTP page. Could this be why I am getting the error message. Any help to assist in resolving this issue asap would be greatly appreciated.

What OS are you using?

your localhost is just your base directory, and doesn't mean Oracle is overide you Web Server. Try creating a virtual directory and refering to it.

You can use your IIS manager to do this or or goto:
C:\Inetpub\wwwroot (or where you have set your webserver)
Create a folder begASP, right click folder, Properties, Web Sharing, Share This Folder and Name your virtual directory.

Place html or asp file as index or default and call the page
http://localhost/begASP and see if it runs

I am using Windows 2000. I spoke with one of our Network administrators and i realized it was a conflict of IP address. The Oracle server had taken over my default port, port 80 so I had to change the IIS web server port to 8080 and I was able to display the page. Thanks for your help and I will still look into your option.
