    b) Copy your website to this system.You can share the website on the LAN.

    ·         Type Inetmgr in RUN

    ·         Open Control Panel > Administrative tools > Internet Information Services

    Did you check the default pages of IIS? 

    Do you have some default page like index.html or default.html or default.aspx or something similar?

    If not you have to give the full address for the page to view it.
