    Hi all, <BR><BR>I am learning asp on my laptop. But the Personal Web Server is not working (Not serving pages, same errors as when you try to surf microsoft.com when NOT connected to net). Any ideas? How to fix please! How do I make it working like a server when I am NOT connected online?<BR><BR>thanks!

    You need a TCP/IP setup on your PC. What you have to do is, setup a dedicated IP for your pc. THe problem, is when you dial in you have yo reset it to dynamic. THis is a complete pain in the *** and I dont know of any workaround. I believe this is documented in the PWS documentation.

    You should have TCP/IP on your machine if your browsing the web. Try http://localhost or http://127.0.0.1<BR>If not you&#039ll need to specify 127.0.0.1 as your machines IP address, control panel, network, tcpip, properties then select one automatically when you dial out.<BR><BR><BR>
