    My system information are,  Windows 2003, IIS 6.0

    I've a website done in classic ASP and it works fine if I use the following URL.

    http://localhost/FileUpload/Default.asp  -->  (good)

    If I replace localhost with the computer name I'm getting the following error.  i.e.,

    http://SSK000021/FileUpload/Default.asp   -->  (bad)

    Same is the case if I try to access this site from other boxes in the network. 


    The page cannot be found

    The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

    Please try the following:

    • Make sure that the Web site address displayed in the address bar of your browser is spelled and formatted correctly.
    • If you reached this page by clicking a link, contact the Web site administrator to alert them that the link is incorrectly formatted.
    • Click the Back button to try another link.

    I found the issue.  One web site was already existing with which was not under defaultwebsites folder and IP address assigned with that of the server.  I moved this site under default websites and changed IP adderss as (All unassigned).  It worked fine.

    how many sites do you have? what's the site binding details? also check the status code of the request. 404.x ?

    normal request to http://servername/ works?
