i'm hosed... i'm getting "The resource cannot be found" on remote browsers

P: n/a
i have a vb asp.net application that has been working fine for a week. if on the server box i type http://localhost/theapp, everything comes up just fine

i've been continually developing. now, when i go to the web page from a remote pc like this

http://the_server/theap

i get a generic error in internet explorer saying the page can't be found

if i use a specific path like http://the_server/theapp, i get an asp.net error saying "the resource cannot be found"

i am certain it's not the client machine. i've tried it on multiple clients and none of them are working. however, i have other servers with aspx apps that work just fine

please help

Did someone change the default page in IIS?

no. nobody changed the default page. like i said, i can type the exact path, and it still won't work

i did some testing and narrowed it down and figured out what is causing it, though i don't understand why. i replaced the web.config file with the default file and it works now. the only thing i changed was i incorporated authentication. i used an example from the documentation. i am using forms authentication and have it redirect to a login.aspx page that is in the root of the application directory. this works perfectly using localhost

every once in a while, my login screen will show up on the remote computer. i will enter the username/password, click login and the login screen will reappear. it just does that forever. then, if i close the browser, bring it back up, it goes back in the state of saying the form doesn't exist. i have a feeling when the form does display, it's incomplete or something

what is going on???

thanks

The problem is about the name of the server.
The server name doesn´t accept the "_" character.
Change the server name
