Hoping someone can help me with this. It MAY be an IIS problem or maybe a DNN5 problem....not entirely sure at this point. Any help or guidance would be appreciated.
I have been tasked to create a company Intranet and I have recently installed a copy of DotNetNuke 5 on a Windows Server 2003 R2 box. It is setup in a virtual directory (called Intranet_Live) under the Default website. I can access it locally using
http://localhost/Intranet_Live/Default.aspx with no problems.
The problem arises when I try to connect from another computer on the network using
http://<server name>/Intranet_Live/Default.aspx or http://<server ip>/Intranet_Live/Default.aspx.
With either option I get a failed to connect error message and strangely the browser web address changes on the remote computer to
http://localhost/intranet_live Very strange!
So far I have tried the following:
Incidently I dropped in a test.htm file into the folder and the remote computers can access that page no problem. This I believe proves that the permissions are ok and possibly suggests that there is a problem with .Net and/or dynamic content. However
other .Net websites on the same IIS work fine both locally and remotely.
I have spent two days on this thus far and I am now unsure what else to try. Any guidance would be greatly received.

Sounds like a DNN issue as it is redirecting to localhost. You would get better support in a DNN forum ...

Thanks for your reply. I have posted a similar thread in the DNN forums...hedging my bets :-)
I would suspect a DNN issue possibly too but I'm not entirely sure why it works locally and not remotely. Accessing the site locally on the server is not triggering a redirect at all.
