This seems like something simple I'm overlooking. I'm a software developer, so I know enough about IIS to get by, but I'm not a wiz....
I have IIS 6.0 (Win 2003) installed and configured to run the same way I've done a thousdand times. It's IP is 10.1.0.8. I can browse my website from the local machine via
http://10.1.0.8 or http://servername, but only locally. When I try to access this same server via from my development PC on the same network, I get no connection.
I use IE by default, which doesn't give me a very good explanation of why I can't connect, but when I try to load the page in Firefox, I get:
"The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading"
The test page I'm trying to load is a "Hello World" so it's not like I have huge amounts of data forcing a timeout or something.
I know I have connectivity to the box from my development PC (Mapped drives and Remote Desktop), so I'm stuck. I did all the Googling I could think of, but the keywords "IIS", "remotely" and "locally" are so generic, I really didn't find anything I was looking
Also, I've disabled all firewalling from my my development PC, router, and IIS server, so I'm positive that's not the problem.
Any help you might have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Try unticking 'Show Friendly HTTP Error Messages' in IE if you want more detailed error messages. Internet Options, Advanced....
This does sound like a network issue to me though.

I doubt it network issue too.
Can you ping through the server form the remote pc?
