I have setup new machine with IIS 7. When I tried from http://localhost it shows IIS home page . When I tried the same with from remote machine http://machinename, I get 404 page not found error. When I pinged IIS machine, it was successful and telnet also worked. I don't know what is the issue. Could you help on this?


Check the bindings for the Default Web Site. Make sure there is set to http All Unassigned port:80 and a blank host name.

    added site binding on default website, Type=http, IP=machine's ip address, port = 80, host name = empty worked – Amzath May 31 '13 at 19:54
  • You could also add a specific binding for the host header = your machine name, or whatever else you would like to use. – tacos_tacos_tacos May 31 '13 at 21:54
