    I am trying to use the iPhone simulator in WebMatrix (don't know version, but it was latest as of June 11, 2013). It seems like a slick simulator but it won't let me enter my URL to my local PC. When I try to enter my URL in the webmatrix URL textbox, it truncates from this:


    to this:


    Fine, so I guess it wants host:port only. But ultimately I need the full URL. When I try to paste the full url into the iphone address bar, it does something exasperating. I paste the full url into the address bar of the iphone simulator and it immediately and automatically changes my url into this;


    This is a sharepoint 2010 site, locally. Why does it change my url out from under me? Why won't it simply accept my url and load the page? A different iphone simulator loads the page as expected without any funny business. A regular browser on my PC loads it fine as well. Why is the webmatrix iphone simulator not allowing me to enter the correct URL?
