I have an application on my network which is accessible when I specify url with port 8080 like "http://ei-social:8080/auth.aspx" but I am getting 404 error when trying to access with "http://ei-social/auth.aspx".
What is the matter. shouldn't it be accessible with both ways?

No. To contact a network service on a certain port (:8080 means port 8080), a service has to be listening to that port. If you don't supply a port, your browser will default to port 80. If you want to contact a site on port 8080 then it has to be configured
to listen on that port for requests, likewise if you want to contact a site on port 80 (the same as requesting the url without specifying a port) it has to be configured to listen on that port also. When you set up a site in IIS there is a bindings section
where you configure these things.
