comment can't Remote desktop to windows XP, blaming the server side
What do you see exactly when the connection fails? Do you see the progress bar for a few seconds in the "Initiating remote connection..." phase and nothing more?

comment Understanding IUSR_<machine> account
Right, Classic ASP is definitely a different beast than ASP.NET 2.0. Your permissions issues will tend to revolve around the app pool in ASP.NET and in Classic ASP it is usually the Anonymous user. You really want to tighten up both the user permissions as well as the directory restrictions configured in the IIS Manager. The link above outlines some of how IIS works in this regards.

comment Understanding IUSR_<machine> account
A detailed response to your last paragraph requires more details such as what version of ASP.NET is involved. In general, I would take issue with your assumptions. IMO the least-privileged account principle is a good approach to the situation. You want redundancy in a high security environment and you don't want processes running with any more privilege than is required to properly function. This excellent blog post should deepen your understanding of the topic: blogs.iis.net/davcox/archive/2009/08/12/…

Take a look at this post: serverfault.com/questions/208599/… It is probably the loopbackcheck "feature".

comment hyper v guest windows 2008 SP2 unreachable from intranet
You probably should think about doing some packet sniffing and some other network diagnostics to narrow the point of failure. Does the machine receive the ICMP traffic? Does it send a reply?

Does the problem go away when the Firewall is completely disabled?
