Post your question to a community of 469,927 developers. It's quick & easy.

The webpage you requested is not available offline

I have deployed an asp.net application on Windows XP(SP2, Internet Explorer V
6). SQL Server is running on the same machine. To login the user browses to
http://machinename/default.aspx. Here they enter log in details and can use
the application.

This works fine on all the other machines that I have deployed the app
(usually laptops where the sales agents can then demo the app live)

One machine keeps giving the error "The webpage you requested is not
available offline" in a little grey pop up box, so i figure it must be
something to do with the browser settings.

I have tried setting "Never dial a connection" in the Internet Options but
this gives the error "The pages cannot be displayed"

I have also tried unchecking "work offline" but this lets the user browse
through the app but there is no functionality available - if they click a
next button on a page nothing happens.

Would really appreciate any suggestions

Thanks!

Hi Eamonn,

Based on the error message, I think this computer cannot connect to the
network, or cannot access that server. So please check the network
connection to see if this machine access other websites. And you can also
try to ping the server.

Hi Kevin,

Thank you for your reply. The application is running on a Windows XP
Prrofessional machine that has IIS installed. The application is in the
wwwroot folder. The database is also installed on this same machine - SQL
Server Standard. So the app and the database are on the same machine there is
no need to connect to the netwrok/Internet. I have installed this
successfully on simialr machines as a stand alone. But this machine is giving
me problems. I think it must a browser issus - ie the browser is too smart
and thinks it must connect to network. I tried using firefox and i dont get
the connection error but the layout and design is awful so this is a no go.
Would really appreciate any suggestion as this is a machine that one of my
sales poeple uses to demo the app and want to look professional.

Thanks and Regards,
Cathie

Hi Cathie,

First, please check in the IIS log to see if the request has been sent to
the IIS. From the error message, the service seems cannot be reached. I
suggest you try to post this issue in microsoft.public.inetserver.iis or
microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.aspnet. There will be more professionals
there who can answer your question.
