I think your problem is due to proxy settings for web application. I solved mine like this. Try and see of it works...
Open VS.NET 2003 and go to TOOLS ->OPTIONS
Select PROJECTS and goto WEB SETTINGS
Click on CONNECTION SETTINGS and choose LAN SETTINGS
In proxy server section check the "Bypass proxy server for local addresses". If it is grayed out, check "Use proxy server....." option but leave the address and port fields blank. Then check the second option and select OK for every window. You should be
good to go...

i am facing the same problem, In <project>.csproj.webinfo file, set port (which is assigned in IIS Server setting) along with Local host.
<Web URLPath = "http://localhost:8001/<Project>/<project>Demo.csproj" />

I have also had the same problem. I tried the ideas above, but still had the problem. I did find this on MSDN, which fixed the problem! In sum if you are running a personal firewall, you need to turn it off.

Couple things on the last few messages. First, the error was the same but the cause may not be. Keep that in mind when responding to a post, you may want to start a new thread.
IIS can be set to answer on any IP and port you wish. If it's not set to All Unassigned and not set to port 80, you may have to either specify the IP or configure DNS or other name resolution to point to the IP and use the name. You do have to specify
the port on the URL.
HTTP has a standard port of 80. Any site not on port 80 has to have the port appended to a URL, as in
http://www.sample.com:8080/. If you set IIS to answer on a specific IP, you have to use that IP or a name that resolves to that IP. The name "localhost" is a special host name which always resolves to 127.0.0.1, the
local loopback address. If IIS isn't listening on this port, the
http://localhost/ will not work.
Most personal firewalls and security software block applications running on the system from receiving requests, including the Windows firewall installed by default on XP SP2. To run a web server, you must allow traffic on that port through the firewall,
port 80 if you haven't chanegd the port in IIS or the port you changed to. This does not mean you have to turn the firewall off. You only have to configure it correctly. Turning it off is a security risk.
Hope it all helps someone else who happens on this thread through a search...
