    hello all

    We are running win2k3 and IIS 6.0 on a Virtual Machine. We are only using this server as a webserver for our internal users to connect to there ASP webpages. We have tried to add second website, but we cannot connect to it. We cannot connect using the ip address or dns. We get the error "service unavailable or page cannot be found". If we try to duplicate our process on a separte server it works just fine. Is there any known issue's with IIS 6, that is only allowing one site to work.

    There are three ways to run multiple websites on the same server. The first is to use different IP addresses, the second is to run them on different ports, and the third is to use host headers by which the server determines which website to serve based on the URL/domain used to access the server.

    You can find a good tutorial to set up IIS 6 here: www.simongibson.com/intranet/iis6. Steps 6, 7 & 8 deal with setting up each of these access methods respectively.

    If its for internal LAN .. then its always better to create another website in another port ...
    you will have to type your website address in this format..
    http://your.internal.ip.addr:port/
    ex. http://127.0.0.1:8080/
    by default this port no. is 80 and you dont need to write it if its port 80
