Developing on a server that's not on port 80...

I'm trying to create a project on a virtual server that runs on port 8000, rather than port 80.

I tried creating the project at http://localhost:8000/MyFolder but it keeps telling me that the file path doesn't map to the url. Is there some trick to using different port numbers?

Thanks.

Are you tring to build using VS 2005?
if VS 2005 has its own webserver and user differrent port each time.

Not really a "trick", but you're doing it in the wrong place.

VS 2005 will work with your project regardless of which port IIS is using.

If you want to create a website on a port different from port 80,
create your new website on whatever port you want to use ( in IIS )
( 8000, for example ).

Totally separate from that, create a new VS 2005 website in your project directory.

After you're done coding, you can *publish*
your VS website project to your IIS site on port 8000.

Sorry... I wasn't specific enough...

This is VS 2003. And I'm trying to create an app within a SharePoint
installation that's running on port 8000 and I need to run in that same
context in order to access the SharePoint database.

Thanks.
