    This is what happens when using the web matrix server whenever I click or cause an event to happen here is the message I get: The page cannot be displayed The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please try the following: Click the Refresh button, or try again later. If you typed the page address in the Address bar, make sure that it is spelled correctly. To check your connection settings, click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Connections tab, click Settings. The settings should match those provided by your local area network (LAN) administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). See if your Internet connection settings are being detected. You can set Microsoft Windows to examine your network and automatically discover network connection settings (if your network administrator has enabled this setting). Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Connections tab, click LAN Settings. Select Automatically detect settings, and then click OK. Some sites require 128-bit connection security. Click the Help menu and then click About Internet Explorer to determine what strength security you have installed. If you are trying to reach a secure site, make sure your Security settings can support it. Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Advanced tab, scroll to the Security section and check settings for SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, PCT 1.0. Click the Back button to try another link.

    This mean it can't connect to the server you trying to contact. Are you using IIS or webmatrix again ?

    Errr. I think we are getting no way. How To Set Up Your First IIS Web Site http://support.microsoft.com/?id=323972 this kb apply to XP Pro as well, however, ignore the new website section as XP Pro only support one. After you have installed, type http://localhost/ if everything is in place, you should see a 'under construction' page. From there, you move on to your development.

    Thanks for your help Bernard. I am probably going to ask you a few more questions to get through this. First when I go to the site "How to Set Up your First IIS web site" Am I following both of the directions 1) Configure Default Web Site and 2) Create New Web Site?? In both of the steps they tell you to click on Internet Services Manager under Administrative tools. I do not have that icon, but I have "Internet Information Services" is that the same thing? I am running windows XPpro. Under the #2 Create a New Web Site step 4 click action, point to new and then click web site. I do not have the option of clicking new after I click action. Thanks for showing me this web site I think my problems will soon be over. Del Dobbs

    As I mentioned earlier, you have to skip the '20 create new web site' as IIS5.1 only supports one site. Now, yes in XP is called Internet Information Services. ok. you should see a 'default web site' right ? right click on the site and click browse.......

    Me again buddy, I read the knowledge base article and followed the steps as much as I could understand. When I opened the Internet Information Services found my computer with its alphanumeric name expanded the tree and found the default web site. Clicked the properties window and followed the instructions most of the stuff in there was already configured to what the instructions said. In the description box I didn't know what to name it so I called it "practice". I played around using different IP addresses and different port numbers. When I ran application entitled "simpleaspx.aspx saved in the C:\Inetpub\wwwroot directory I type in "http://localhost/simpleaspx.aspx " and I got the message "You must specify a valid application name before starting a web application using as IIs virtual root. IIs virtual roots are accessed using URL's of the form "http://localhost/<application name>'." Any more suggestions You are keeping me motivated to learn more Thanks Del Dobbs

    MSDN has an article "Walkthrough: Creating an ASP.NET web application Root Directory with IIS". Could that have anything to do with the error message I specified in my last posting?? Thanks again I am doing quite a bit of reading on my own to try and solve this problem. Del Dobbs

    I haven't seen this error before ? is this from IIS ?????? have you try a simple html pages ? I don't think you need to specify it as an application for a simple hello world aspx. so I don't know what's the simpleaspx.aspx page does.

    Bernard, I have done a little self discovery. I created the Hello World asp.net page as outlined in the Web Matric Project Guided tour. I have discovered one thing which I will get to. I saved it in the C:\inetpub\wwwroot folder. When I run it using the Web Matrix server i got two different error messages. The page will display just fine, but when I enter my name and hit the button I got different responses. The first and most frequent is the page is unavailable and you know the long page about checking your connections etc.(This message occurs frequently). One time I got the message: Server Error in '/' application HTTP Error 400 Bad Request. I did make one discovery however, most of the time I was connected to Verizon online dsl while testing the application. I discovered that when I was disconnected the application works about 25-30% of the time. The other 70-75% of the time I get one of the error messages. I then attempted to run it using the IIs server I got nothing. Remember I saved it in C:\inetpub\wwwroot as helloworld.aspx. When I click the radio button choice and enter the name as http://localhost/helloworld.aspx and hit enter. I get the message: You must specify a valid application name before starting a web application using a IIs virtual root. IIs virtual roots are accessed using URL's of the form 'http://localhost/<application name>' I don't know where to go from here. I am pretty confident that I am creating the application right because it is working correctly 30% of the time using the Matrix Server. I think something is not configured right somewhere??? Thanks for your time Del Dobbs

    Hhmm.. quite hard to move forward. I haven't try webmatrix before, so don't know much about it. For now, do you have both running ? By default, IIS - uses c:\inetpub\wwwroot\, I don't know webmatrix will store its default file. If you wish to continue with webmatrix, I would suggest you try the webmatrix group :) http://www.asp.net/Forums/ShowForum.aspx?tabindex=1&ForumID=30
