I have asked this before of colleagues and the room goes silent.
With classic ASP I have the source code for
and I want to set this up on a Developer macahing so that I can walk through the code and run the page locally. I have VS 2005 and 2008 on my mschine. I think I understand if it were
www.MyWebPage.net/MainFrame.asp But what do I do with the stuff before the URL?
AsP Net 2.0 C#
asp .net 2.0
Asp .net 2.0 with C#

The first part of your url is called a subdomain so "newreports" is a subdomain, "mywebpage" is the domain, "net" is the top level domain.
If you are setting up a new website in IIS then you can type whatever you want in the host header section so you can add in a subdomain to mimick this on your dev setup.
In reality it doesnt matter where you run it unless you have embedded the http://newreports.MyWebPage.net/ into the application, you should be using urls that are etiher relative (../../page.asp) or absolute (/page.asp)
Another options is that you could map your HOSTS file to intercept the url newreports.MyWebPage.net and point it at your localhost.

I have an answer: in this case "NewReports" would be the name of the server.
