I have IIS all set up and working fine on a stand-along win2k sp2 system, with one strange problem. <BR>Every time I point my browser to http://localhost/virtual_directory, IE insists on dialing up my ISP, or it won’t show the page. I’ve also tried it with machine name and instead of localhost, same thing. I have a hosts file with the following entry:<BR> localhost machine_name<BR><BR>Any ideas on what I need to do so I can browse my local web files without always having to establish a dial-up connection to my ISP?
