    View internet websites locally

    I have several websites hosted on a Windows server on my network. I can get to each by going to the URL, http://www.xxxyyyzzz.com, or http://www.zzzyyyxxx.com, or etc. There are some active pages on several of the sites that I would like to access without tying up internet resources. How can I run these pages locally? http://192.168.1.10 and http://servername only give me the default web site of the server.

    I'm just guessing, but provided the folders are shared on your Windows network, I'd have thought you could use the network addresses. E.g. Say xxxyyyzzz.com home page is index.html located on your network on the server WEBSERVER1 (with local address 192.168.1.10) in the folder shared as xxxyyyzzz, try creating a shortcut to \\WEBSERVER1\xxxyyyzzz\index.html or \\192.168.1.10\xxxyyyzzzz\index.html.

    There is the default page at the server address and a few other sites in different locations. It is one of these other sites I need to access, they are not sub-folders of the default.

    file://///servername/c$/Public/Web/xxxyyyzzz/default.asp
    I get the text of the file and not the viewable page

    http://servername/c$/Public/Web/xxxyyyzzz/default.asp
    HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found

    If they aren't plain .html files, then you'll probably have to access them via the web server so that the applicable server-side processing (in this case ASP) is invoked. The only other option would be to set up your own web server on your local dev/test PC (or within a VM on that machine) and run them locally via that web server.

    It would have helped if you mentioned in the OP that they are ASP pages! You might get the right info first time. Thread moved.
