  • Hi ,

    Work From the server first . Let me know if you have a Host header for the site . Try to open the site with the port # . Browse it from IIS .

    If the issue is with the host header and you have server 2008 OS - then disable the loop back adaptor link given below

    if you are getting 404 then check whether there is any root site created when the web application was created i suppose the error must be page not found .
