I have Windows XP Professional with SP3. I am trying to set up IIS 5.1 so that I can work on and test some ASP web pages. However, I can't get any good response to the localhost. According to my browser (Foxfire) it doesn't exist! I have installed IIS 3 times. I keep restarting the service after I make changes. I have verified that I have Anonymous access checked and Allow IIS to Control Passwords checked. I have verified that my default web site is in fact running (at the control panel level). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
What control panel are you running?
How are you trying to reach the site? localhost, IPaddress??
You may need to check the website IP address and host header settings
