    If my company web site is running under IIS the default
    Web site fails. If I try to start the default site it
    states it cannot use Port 80. If I deactivate the company
    web site in IIS the default web now works

    How do I resolve this?

  2. IIS needs the combination of host header and port to direct web
    requests, therefore only one site can run on each unique combination.

    It sounds like you currently have both sites with no host header and
    port 80. Consequently, only one site or the other can be running at any
    one time.

    I am pretty new at this (the IIS stuff) so have to learn
    about host headers.

    So far I have deactivated the companyweb, and now I have
    access to my backup web page in Server Manager.

    Any suggestions on reading for creating companyweb and
    using host headers? I take it port 80 and 445 should be
    OK for both Web pages as long as the host headers are

  4. That's right.

    Have you run the CEICW yet? Because I'm sure this takes care of all

  5. Hi Jerry,

    Running the CEICW should resolve the issue, as Steve indicated. To run this
    wizard, go to the Server Management Console, then to the To Do List. Click
    the link Connect to the Internet.
