How do I load my "Hello World" ASP in a browser?

Classic ASP, I believe, is fundamentally a feature of IIS. I have gone through the steps of setting up my first test page to be loaded in my browser but it does not come up.

I currently have a "Default Web Site" and a "Test for Learning" listed in my list of "Sites" in the Connections panel of my IIS.

I assigned my "Test For Learning" site to port 79.

But when I click on the link, the browser does not load the page for some reason

For comparison, here is the Default Web Site:

Please advise or ask any clarifying questions.

Hi Xarzu,

A quick search for the ERR_UNSAFE_PORT message, shown in Chrome's response, indicates that Chrome itself is blocking the request.

Search results also explain how to unblock the unsafe ports but realise you do so at your own risk.

Why not leave it on 80 / 8080 and use firewall rules for access control? I run micro webservice endpoints that way on many servers, most of which are NAT routed from the outside world.
