    I've got a website I made using ASP.NET. I've had it running on Brnkster all summer and then yesterday I was messing around with IIS and set it up to run off of my computer. It is now running at 12.222.102.71:802/dox. The problem is that I can open it using IE but I can't open it using Firefox. Other people can open it with Firefox and I can open the site on Brinkster fine. When I try to open it using the address above in Firefox I get this:

    Any ideas on what is wrong and how I could possibly fix that?

    Check your helper application settings in the Firefox prefs, see if it has some action associated with the ASP mimetype.

    It works fine for me :dunno:

    Can't really find anything in the prefs. I think it has to be something related to the file being local to the same computer since I can view the exact same files when they are located on a different server. I'm totally stumped especially since this only effects Firefox and not IE.

    I get Connection Refused, but that's probably because I'm at work and they've got that port blocked... I'll try again when I get home.

    Now it's even more confusing. I tried http://localhost:802/dox and that worked for me in Firefox finally. (As did http://172.0.0.1:802/dox)
    After doing that I tried http://12.222.102.71:802/dox again and it worked in Firefox for the first time in three days that I've been trying it.
    No idea why it suddenly is working now, but as long as it keeps working I guess that's cool.
