    hey guys,

    i have this strange problem with VS 2005

    when i hit F5 to run my WebSite

    internet explorer writes this message:

    Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage 

    What you can try:
    Diagnose Connection Problems

    More information

    This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:

    •Internet connectivity has been lost.
    •The website is temporarily unavailable.
    •The Domain Name Server (DNS) is not reachable.
    •The Domain Name Server (DNS) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
    •There might be a typing error in the address.
    •If this is an HTTPS (secure) address, click Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, and check to be sure the SSL and TLS protocols are enabled under the security section.

    For offline users

    Yes,  I have that entry as well.  I think, though I'm not sure, that it's related to IPv6.

     Don't worry about either local host or the 127.0.0.1 IP address, both are useless anyway.  Confiorgure your system to run IIS and use IIS for your web development.

    Go to this folder on your computer: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc and open the "hosts" file.  Check if you have an entry like this:


    127.0.0.1       localhost

    thnx for the reply,

    and yes it is there in the file

    so i understood that this file allocates the names to the ip addresses

    so this "127.0.0.1 localhost" is understandable,

    so what does this mean "::1 localhost".

    well i did configer IIS to run on my computer but still,

    i think it's an ASP.NET thing because when i type localhost only in my browser

    the browser gets me the IIS 7 page,but when i type "localhost:7447/default.aspx" or run my web from VS 2005

    it gives me the page with the error.
