  • hi friends,

  • Have you tried a Disable-loopback-check ?

  • How did you actually configure this web application , is it extended web application with a host header of "www.something.com"? Have you made an entry in hosts file for www.something.com or there is actually a DNS entry that you are using?

  • hi gurjit,

    I had my SPF 2010 site hosted with asphostcentral and I initially had the same problem like you. One interesting to note down is that I cannot login while I was on the same server where my SPF site is installed, however, if I browse to the site from remote server, it works!. This may be due to the Active Directory setting and Sharepoint Loopback check.

    I agree with Mr. Razi that you need to disable the loopback check + you need to pay attention to the Alternate Access Mapping. Hope this helps
