IIS help needed

By colin.tordale ·
OK, I've installed IIS on XP Pro. It appears I setup the site correctly because when I view it throught http://localhost/ it brings up the web page. When I try to access this page from another computer on the network using the IP address, I get "Cannot find server". Is there something I missed in the setup?

Try sharing Inetpub on your C Driver, then try locating the wwwroot forlder in the Inetpub, look for the FolderSITE (www.mysite.com) and scrolll to the page you wish to view.

Pay attention to your IE address bar!

I tried sharing the Inetpub directory on the WinXP box, still get the same message. Everything works great on the XP box with http://localhost/mysite/ Doesn't seem to work on other computers on the network.
