I have finished building a new site for our company and would like to somehow publish it on the LAN so folks at the company can look at it like a real website. I've done setup a new site under IIS under the IP of the server but I keep getting this error
thrown at me by IE
The site you are trying to view does not currently have a default page. It may be in the process of
being upgraded and configured.
Please try this site again later. If you still experience the problem, try contacting the Web site administrator.
If you are the Web site administrator and feel you have received this message in error, please see "Enabling
and Disabling Dynamic Content" in IIS Help.

Have you set a default document for you website?

that's been done, the index.htm is the first document in that list, I also tried re-naming the document to 1index.htm but that didn't help either

Did you create a separate web site ? If so you probably need to configure a host header on your web site. Either that or just stop the Default Web Site if it isn't being used by another application. The 'Under Construction' page is actually being served
from the Default Web Site.

If you are using host header names to configure multiple web sites , then you must set host headers for all of your sites and make sure the host name will be resolved to the correct IP address.
In this case, the 'Under Construction' page did being served from the Default Web Site. The Default Web Site listens for all host headers on port 80. Actually, you can just drop your files in C:\inetpub\wwwroot, and hit up
http://(Ip Address or sever name)/file relative path.
