I'm doing some test hosting of an program I created

I can access it fine from the local machine (both debugging and pointing the virtual directory to it)

I can also access (local) by using the localhost or using the ip

however when i get on a different machine on the same network (i can ping my machine)

I get the following error:

Connection Interrupted

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

The network link was interrupted while negotiating a connection. Please try again.

Does anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Have you tried disabling the firewall to make sure that it's not the firewall causing the problem? – 3dinfluence Aug 26 '09 at 2:59

firstly, look at your web.config file verify whether everything is as it is supposed to be

next, check your iis manager see if it allows connections from other machines ip address should be 'all unassigned' port - 80 what is the connection timeout? (default is 900) is http keep-alives enabled?
