i have this strange problem with VS 2005
when i hit F5 to run my WebSite
internet explorer writes this message:
i am using windows vista,i have all the upgrades i played alittle with my antivirus but also nothing,
i tried changing the "localhost" word in the address by "127.0.0.1" and it worked,
so does anyone know how to solve this dilemma ?

Go to this folder on your computer: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc and open the "hosts" file. Check if you have an entry like this:

thnx for the reply,
and yes it is there in the file
so i understood that this file allocates the names to the ip addresses
so this "127.0.0.1 localhost" is understandable,
so what does this mean "::1 localhost".

Yes, I have that entry as well. I think, though I'm not sure, that it's related to IPv6.

Don't worry about either local host or the 127.0.0.1 IP address, both are useless anyway. Confiorgure your system to run IIS and use IIS for your web development.

well i did configer IIS to run on my computer but still,
i think it's an ASP.NET thing because when i type localhost only in my browser
the browser gets me the IIS 7 page,but when i type "localhost:7447/default.aspx" or run my web from VS 2005
it gives me the page with the error.
