Please do not use localhost with the device emulator. Use the machine name or
computer name with the port.

If you test it from ASP.NET Web Development Server, it only supports accessing from the localhost. This is the limitation ASP.NET Web Development Server. Please publish it to IIS server to avoid this.

I have tried the following and still no joy:
1) Installed Active Sync
2) Tried the followings URL's
3) Turned off Windows Firewall
When I install Active Sync do I need to create an actual connection between my emulated device and active sync, if so what port or type of connetion do i create?
Alternatively are there any other emulators i can use to test my website
Many thanks in advance

In the Device Emulator Manager you have to connect to a device firstly, i. e. you have to start the emulator. Then you have to cradle the device, i. e. you have to establish a connection through ActiveSync. The port is the port your Server is using for the
web application. If you are using the development server it will regularly not be port 80.

Try connecting the emulator to your machine via ActiveSync. Once it's connected open up Mobile IE and use your computer's IP address (with port number if necessary) instead of "localhost". Should do the trick.
