Testing Environment Issue

I have a small network running off of a SOHO switch. Last week I was
connecting to my development computer from a testing computer on the same
network - to test the Web app's behavior on different browsers. I have
completely rebuilt the computers in question. The development computer is
now XP/Pro/SP2 (was Win2K Pro) and the testing computer is now a Win2KPro.
The problem is that from the Win2KPro testing computer I cannot open the Web
site on the development computer. I was doing this last week by typing in
//192.168.xxx.yyy/MyWebApp into IE's address bar (if my memory is serving me
correctly). Anyway, this week that doesn't work. I even turned OFF simple
file sharing on the XP box and successfully mapped a drive from the Win2KPro
box - so I know connectivity is there, I have the correct IP Address, etc.

What's going on here? How can I open the Web app on the development box from
the testing box?

Thanks!

As you've rebuilt your computer you'll want to do all the checks, especially
on the server;

+ Make sure the IP hasn't changed; maybe it was DHCP-assigned
+ Make sure IIS is installed and working
+ Make sure .NET is installed and working
+ Make sure you don't have firewall services blocking port 80 on the test
server
+ Make sure your MyWebApp virtual directory is properly configured

Go through all the normal network checks. Try pinging your server, try
accessing a regular HTML page in the default web site, etc. etc.

Once you've identified where the problem is, you should be able to find the
solution quickly enough.

Thanks! I had already done everything you suggested except for that XP
Firewall... turned it off and could then connect.

Cheers!
