    Default IIS question

    I want to be able to set up 3 virtual web sites on our IIS5 box. None of these sites have domain names as yet. I thought if I set them up to be http://123.123.123/siteA, http://123.123.123/siteb, and http://123.123.123/sitec then I would be able to browse to those addresses. Not so it would seem. I added the first and gave it a host header and all was well, I added a second and it said a duplicate name existed (different host header) but this site/content/name has never been near the IIS box. I want to set them up as virtual sites and not virtual directories coz the links to home pages and include files will be broken if they are a virtual directory.<BR>Any IISers out there can tell me where I missed a step please.<BR>Just to recap - 3 sites, same IP#, no domain name as yet.<BR>Many thanks<BR>Jay

    well, you need a domain name to set up a host header (or some form of DNS service running).<BR><BR>you also need to delete the default host header entry after adding your own entry. it&#039;s also a good idea not to select &#039;all unassigned&#039; as the IP<BR><BR><BR>j<BR>http://www.sydneypubguide.net/
