I have one website which i am trying to access from IE. If i use domain name to access then it is doing anything except showing login page again. But same site if i try to access using it's ip address then it works perfectly fine ? for example i have site help.co.in which is deployed on a machine which has ip 120.120.120.120. So if i try to access site using its domain name (help.co.in) then it only shows login page and if i try to login nothing happens, i mean it redirects to same page again instead login and going to some other page. Also it does not show any error also in error logs. But if i access it using 120.120.120.120 then it works perfectly fine.

Background : Site is developed in Drupal 6.

Wild guess: something to do that your cookies go to the wrong domain name. But this is really hard without knowing more about the server, the configuration and the login mechanism. PErhaps this question is more for webmasters.stackexchange.com or serverfault.com –  mdornsf Nov 4 '10 at 11:50
    
Are you using a particular sites directory or just the default? –  Andrew Sledge Nov 4 '10 at 16:20
    
The question is not very clear, but I think you've probably got a web server issue rather than a Drupal configuration problem. Ask at serverfault –  CJBrew Nov 5 '10 at 9:38
    
I don't think it's a web server issue at all. It sounds to me like a webpage code problem. The server is serving up the page just fine it's the process of the code for the login process. I vote to send to webmasters.stackexchange.com –  TechGuyTJ Nov 6 '10 at 0:52
