    charon,

    Which browser are you using?
    Have you enabling the bypassing of the proxy for your local addresses (IE)?
    Do you need to add your machine to a non-proxy exception list(IE)?

    two suggestions.
    1-> try accessing the site by typing in "http://localhost/website/index.htm"

    (Specifically type 'http://')


    2-> try accessing the site by typing in "http://127.0.0.1/website/index.htm"

    This is what I'm doing and cannot be accessed....



    >>>>>2-> try accessing the site by typing in "http://127.0.0.1/website/index.htm"

    2 possibilities:

    1-> In your webserver software configuration file (if ur running apache), it may not allow connections from localhost, only 127.0.0.1

    2-> do a search for a file called "hosts"

    [possible locations]
    Win9x -> C:\windows
    WinNT/2k -> C:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc

    make sure your hosts file has an entry that reads
    127.0.0.1 localhost


    see if that fixes things
