comment Can I add a virtual IP address to a network adapter remotely?
Could I press you for an example? The netsh documentation and built-in help is a little unclear for me.

They do all sorts of things in the name of "security". I'm sure they'll turn off the boxes one day and go "Yes! Nobody can access now!" All I can do is try and find solutions around their problems.

No, no filters on this site. Perhaps you're feeling as lost I have have for the last few hours! I can confirm the error is 500 too, from this line in the HTML source: <!-- default "Unknown Host" response (500) --> I'm baffled.

Adding the entry to the hosts file returns the same error as presented in question.

I can confirm that company.local is in the DSN Suffix list for the server's network adapter. Will attempt your suggestion and get back.

At the moment, no code. Just plain helloworld.html. Adding "unfriendly" error to question.

I'm querying the site from the server itself, so there shouldn't be a firewall problem. The error page is similar to this: codinghorror.typepad.com/.a/… But for a 500 error. Not getting any 500.x with detail, I'm afraid.

I have tried with headers for service.test and service.test.company.local. Trying to access service.test always generates a 500 error, regardless. Also, I'm using helloworld.html as my test page.
