Hi, all. I created a second website on our company's Intranet called "DotNetTest". I set 81 as the port and set the physical path to d:\IntranetDotNet. In folder d:\IntranetDotNet, I created a simple HTML page called "test.html" which just displays "Hello
world" within the <html> and <body> tags. On my client desktop, when I go to
http://mycompany.com:81/test.html, I get "This page can't be displayed". As a test, test.html works fine when I copy it to our company's Default Web Site. What else do I have to do to properly set up the second website? Thanks a lot.

Can you open the page from the server? If so, the firewall might be blocking port 81.

Yes, I can -- I didn't think of that. http://localhost:81/test.html works. Thanks a lot!

With localhost you are accessing your website from local computer. When you access the website from remote computer with domain name, you need to configure the firewall setting to make the port 81 available for remote access.
The following link shows how to configure the port to make it available for remote access, please take it as reference.
