    I have a small network running off of a SOHO switch. Last week I was
    connecting to my development computer from a testing computer on the same
    network - to test the Web app's behavior on different browsers. I have
    completely rebuilt the computers in question. The development computer is
    now XP/Pro/SP2 (was Win2K Pro) and the testing computer is now a Win2KPro.
    The problem is that from the Win2KPro testing computer I cannot open the Web
    site on the development computer. I was doing this last week by typing in
    //192.168.xxx.yyy/MyWebApp into IE's address bar (if my memory is serving me
    correctly). Anyway, this week that doesn't work. I even turned OFF simple
    file sharing on the XP box and successfully mapped a drive from the Win2KPro
    box - so I know connectivity is there, I have the correct IP Address, etc.

    What's going on here? How can I open the Web app on the development box from
    the testing box?

    Thanks!

    As you've rebuilt your computer you'll want to do all the checks, especially
    on the server;

    + Make sure the IP hasn't changed; maybe it was DHCP-assigned
    + Make sure IIS is installed and working
    + Make sure .NET is installed and working
    + Make sure you don't have firewall services blocking port 80 on the test
    server
    + Make sure your MyWebApp virtual directory is properly configured

    Go through all the normal network checks. Try pinging your server, try
    accessing a regular HTML page in the default web site, etc. etc.

    Once you've identified where the problem is, you should be able to find the
    solution quickly enough.

    Thanks! I had already done everything you suggested except for that XP
    Firewall... turned it off and could then connect.

    Cheers!
