I am trying to setup a test version of the same classic asp website. I copied the exact files over into another directory. I set the virtual directory or website (different port of course) up exactly the same as the one that works. No matter how I configure
the virtual directory or website even with the exact same settings as the one that works I get
The page cannot be displayed. Any ideas why this could be happening? This is really a hair puller.

The error shows it can't find the server or a DNS issue. Anything in the IISLogs showing requests?

That is the wierd thing nothing in the logs about what is happening. The log shows the loading of the graphics and html of the login page, but does not show anything for the address of the page where this error page comes up. It must be getting an error
client side that isn't allowing it to log what is happening. Any ideas? Does anyone have a real thorough checklist for setting up classic asp applications in iis 6 or 7?

Are you on 6 or 7 ?
What about a simple hello.asp that response.write "hello world" ?

Do you have the Windows Firewall enabled on your web server ? That could potentially be blocking traffic to your web site.

The error message is clear - the browser can not find your server - it has nothing to do with ASP.
So if the login page works, what happens next? How is the user being sent to the page that causes the error?

Hello world give me service unavailable.

OK fixed that issue it was a security issue on the IIS_WPG account. For future reference a great article on this issue.
Hello world site now works.
Still getting above error for my original site.
The Page cannot be displayed.
Yes I have Custom Errors turned off in web.config and yes I have friendly error setting off in Internet Explorer internet options.

Log in page loads. Then I am posting to a page that processes the log in logic. IE authenticates and then should route you to the correct page depending on who you are. In the code they do use this line.

Most likely. Where is it browsing to? Is the address different?
