IIS Sites work Externally not Internally(localhost)

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by Brock Hensley, Nov 23, 2007.

  1. I've come across something interesting here.. None of the sites in IIS(v6 on
    2k3server) work locally, ie: localhost (for default site) or any other
    domains/right-click-Browse.... comes up with: "This program cannot display
    the webpage.. You are not connected to the internet / website is
    encountering problems / might be typing error in address"...

    There are no entries in the log file for the site.. it seems to be a DNS
    issue but I am able to (on server) ping yahoo, nslookup the domain resolves
    to the correct IP (itself).

    I've checked Permissions on the folders and they look in order, as the sites
    are pulling up externally but not on the server itself, I'm a bit confused.

    Any thoughts appreciated,
