    Prob with Win2003 After using httpcfg

    Need your advice my IP XXX.XXX.XXX.4 5 6
    4 was used for MerakMail I did to stop IIS from listening so I use this;EN-US;813368
    only enable 5, 6

    Now problem is localhost goes to the email server meaning http://localhost points to the email server, I cannot use localhost: to access from FP configuration settings etc, creating FP give me a page not found in the IIS, how to I change localhost to say .5? I change the IP of the Default Site and Sharepoint also doesnt help, anyone experience such a prob? How to solve it

    Hi, in windows localhost is set using a file called "hosts" this file is located in C:\%windir%\system32\drivers\etc

    its easier to do a search in windows to find it, you can easily redirect the localhost name to point to any IP address you like using that file.

    By default localhost will point to (loopback) - Fast Professional UK Web Hosting
