Login fail when using hostname in URL
I'm using IIS7 Windows Server 2008 Enterprise.
The problem that i have is i cannot login to the asp.net application when i using the hostname in the URL
for example: http://win2008/myApplication/login.aspx
The login screen is there only cannot login into the application.
Browse from other machine is also the same.
No problem if i using http://localhost/......
Is there any setting need to be modified?

There is a setting somewhere in IIS for allowed hosts that could be blocking access, but my guess is your dns or firewall is the source of the problem. From a command prompt try to ping by hostname and see if that works.
