I have an application which I am hosting on localhost (XP Box). It was working fine but suddenly I am getting an error message that page not found
The following works
But when I use 8080 port number, it does not work
I need port numbr because my application has silverlight control (embedded in .aspx page) which calls HttpHandler and upload Image to application directory (/MyApp/NewImages/). Silverlight tries to find HttpHandler at localhost:8080/MyApp/HttpHandters/receiver.ashx

Are you using IIS or IIS express. If you are using IISExpress then you will have to start the issexpress, as it does not start by default.

being able to connent to application using localhost, doesn't mean that IIS is running

After goggling couple of hours, I didn't find the actual cause of the problem. But I found the solution.
Instead of using localhost:8080/MyApp/test.aspx, Use
Also I have to change the Uri in my silverlight application to http://127.0.0.1/MyApp/HttpHandters/receiver.ashx from localhost:8080/MyApp/HttpHandters/receiver.ashx
