Using either http://&#060;machinename&#062;/x.asp or http://localhost/x.asp within IE5 causes the dialog to come up with Work Offline or Try Again. On clicking Try Again the browser correctly responds and executes the ASP. There is no physical active network connection so I am using the MS loopback adapter. Any ideas? <BR><BR>Also can anyone explain the hierarchy of the name resolution being applied here (i.e DNS then WINS etc). Do you entries in the HOSTS and LMHOSTS files for the locahost and computer name URL&#039s?<BR><BR>Help!
