IIS on a single IP (coexisting with Apache)

4 New Member
I am an applications programmer with limited knowledge of system configuration.
I have two development computers, XP Pro (IP and on a LAN behind a router (IP which connects to broadband internet.
On one of my development computers I want to setup both IIS (running MS Access, MS SQL and ASP) and Apache (running MySQL and PHP). Both the web local servers are for local development use and need not (at this stage anyway) be seen by the world outside my router. I have downloaded the Support Tools and read numerous forum threads on the subject but still run into problems. My first objective is to run IIS on a single IP address (as opposed to all) so that I can use other IP addresses for Apache websites also using port 80. There are a number of things I don’t understand:
1. What IP address do I use? Can I pick any unused address in the local range 192.168.xxx.yyy ?
2. localhost is supposed to have IP address . Where is that determined and how does that relate to the address I select below (4)?
3. When I browse for http://localhost do I always get IIS? In what way does localhost in IIS differ from localhost in Apache?
4. I picked for IIS (it refused and set it up to port 80 in Administrative Tools --> IIS.
5. I also ran

httpcfg delete iplisten –i
httpcfg set iplisten –i
net stop http
net start http

Then when I run

httpcfg query iplisten

it displays the one and only as it should.

But it does not work even after restart. The localhost website stops (“Internet Explorer cannot display the website…”) and when I try to start it I get error 0x8ffe2740 which indicates an addressing conflict. Where is this addressing conflict? Who is in conflict with whom? (I have deselected port 80 in Skype and also turned Skype off but I see (below) that Skype is still listening on 3 ports. Why?)

6. When I run
netstat –aon
I get

Active Connections

Proto Local Address Foreign Address State PID
UDP *:* 220
UDP *:* 4
UDP *:* 572
UDP *:* 1936
UDP *:* 892
UDP *:* 892
UDP *:* 572
UDP *:* 844
UDP *:* 3248
UDP *:* 4076
UDP *:* 2080
UDP *:* 844
UDP *:* 4
UDP *:* 4
UDP 3 *:* 1936

I don’t understand what this means. What are all these services running in the background? Why is my selected web server address not there?

When I have resolved the above I will make another attempt (the first one failed) to install Apache. Could somebody help me over the first hurdle?

If you having this much trouble I suggest finding a good resource first. Read the chapter on security first. Otherwise you may be left rueing that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing ;).

Thank you kenobewan, but that was not very helpful. I have read quite a lot but it is not my intent to become an expert in this field. It would be very helpful if you just briefly answered the questions I posed.

Thank you again kenobewan. I have already read that article and many others and also previously successfully set up IIS and created a number of ASP applications. It was only when I wanted to expand to Apache/PHP I ran into problems. IIS by default listens to port 80 on ALL IP addresses. In order to add another server I have to either use a different port for this server or still use port 80 and use specific IP addresses for each server. When I try to do the latter (which is the recommended way) IIS quits working. Why? I was hoping that the answers to my initial questions would clarify that.
