I have hosted my webservices (.asmx) on
http://<mydomain>/cons/sg/ folder in my IIS. Wehn I browse from server on which this IIS is hosted it workd fine but when browsing from internet It displays directory listing of virtual directory /cons/ once o click on folder sg I receove above message
"Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage", sg is the folder which contains all web services hosted. I am using windows server 2003 R2 with IIS6 and ASP.NET 2.0
Can Anyone tell me what is gpoing wrong with my IIS? Why I cannot open third page?

Try entering the entire path to the page, including the webservice.asmx filename. It sounds like it may be the directory listing settings that are the issue. Without knowing the real error in the sg folder, my guess is that somehow the /cons/ folder has
directory listing allowed but the /cons/sg/ folder doesn't. Check the "Directory" tab for your sg folder in IIS and look at the checkbox called "Directory browsing".
If that doesn't solve it, in Internet Explorer, go to the options and remove the "Show Friendly HTTP Error Messages" checkbox. That will show you the real error when you hit it.

I have solved the puzzle. It was simply a case of bandwidth performance. Due to high latency this problem occurs.
Tjanks for your response.
