    I am writing my first VB.Net ASP application and would like to set up
    another computer for testing.

    On the "host" computer I have installed IIS and used VB.Net to create an
    HTML member in the c:\ root directory called Index.htm. This module is a
    simple "Hello World" HTML file. This machine is connected to the internet
    and has a static IP address.

    On the "Client" computer I enter the IP address of the host (with or without
    "\Index.htm") on the Address line of IE6 and press enter.

    I should then see my "Hello World" file, right? Well, I get "This page
    cannot be displayed". What am I missing????

    Thanks in advance,
    John

    Hi John,

    I think you should put the Index.htm under wwwroot folder. By default, it is
    the "c:\inetpub\wwwroot" folder.
