    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.
