WSS 3.0 and Intranet Site (404 Not Found)

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


I set up an Intranet site using IIS 6.0. The main site page is something like http://pan/environet/main.aspx.


Then I installed WSS 3.0, which seems to work fine, but now I can't access my Intranet page anymore. The TCP port number 80 was taken over by WSS and the EnviroNet web site was stopped. I changed the EnviroNet web site to a different number (1029; I have no idea what to pick) and restarted the site. But sadly, I just get a 404 Not Found message when I try to access the Intranet site.


Any ideas? I can't find anything in help. When I set this up on an older server a few years ago, I was running WSS 2.0. That version allowed me to exclude paths of other sites. WSS 3.0 doesn't seem to have this feature, and from what I gather, it shouldn't need it. But I'm still running into problems since apparently WSS wants to be king to the exclusion of other sites on my server.

Build an Easy Maintenance Intranet Site: Using Office Docs, File System Object, and OLE Structured S


If you've ever needed to build an easy-to-maintain intranet site, here's a solution based on Microsoft Office documents. Many sites require constant updating of their HTML, but the use of Word documents can simplify the process. This article details the construction of a human resources site that exploits the File System Object (FSO), OLE Structured Storage, and ActiveX capabilities of Word documents. This allows the HR staff to copy their revised or newly created Word files to the site, dynamically generate a list of links to their files, and free IS from the constant recoding of HR updates into new HTML pages.

Trying to launch a .exe file on my local computer from intranet site.


I have been told I can launch a local program on my PC from my intranet site but it has to be done with Active X or vbscript and not javascript.  I found the following little sample html code that will launch notepad.  However, I cannot figure out how to put this in a button, etc., within my aspx or code behind to execute it.  Does anybody have any idea how to do this?  I have a lot of javascript code I am launching urls with and I have even tried using that but again, I have been told that to do it client side it needs to be vbscript or something like this.  Any ideas?

Alternate Access mapping - Intranet site

Hi All, I'm banging my head against a brick wall here trying to setup an alternate access mapping for an intranet site in SharePoint 2007. I have a default site setup which has the following public default URL: http://SERVERNAME:2586 I want users to access the site using the URL http://Intranet Now from reading about alternate access mappings I thought this should be as simple as adding an internal url of http://intranet under the intranet zone. With this set up I preceded to add the binding to the IIS website. I added the binding with All Assigned IP addresses, port 2586, and host as Intranet. The final thing I did to check this was to add an entry to the hosts file for the server IP address with the host name of intranet. This was followed by a flush of the DNS cache on the server. Whgen trying to access the site using the URL i now get the IIS7 welcome page, but not the SharePoint site I expected. Can anyone point me in the direction of what i've done wrong, Its got me stumped. Cheers, Grant

Is there a way to track web traffic for an intranet site?

Hello - I have built my intranet using MS Visual Web Developer Express 2008. There are several secured areas and my manager asked me to find out if tracking the traffic is possible. Things that I would need to track include: Which unique user ID's logged in and when? How many times did the same user login? Last login What info was accessed? What page(s) had the most hits? Would I need a database for tracking purposes? Would this info be available with a "dashboard" interface? Thanks,Kirsten

intranet site authentication against Active Directory


Hi all,

I am trying to build a web app for an intranet site that for security reasons needs to make the user type in their Windows or Active Directory username pwd manually. I have previously worked with Integrated Windows Auth but in this case, we do want them to use type in their AD credentials. 

I have been trying to look up how to do this and frankly I am a bit lost. It should be a fairly straightforward task and am hoping you can point me in the right direction, with some tutorials or examples. We will be using SSL so, dont have to worry about passing pwd in cleartext over the wire. 

My environment is visual studio 2008 in C#, .net 3.5 if that matters.

Any pointers ? Thank you. 

site collection 404 not found error


Hi All,

Over the past few weeks we have been using the Sharepoint 2010 wiki site collection quite happily. Yet today it stoped working providing only a single line 404 NOT FOUND response.


We are not aware that anyone made any changes and when looking in the central administration we see nothing that indicates that that site collection is out of the ordinary.

Can someone please describe the steps we should take to determine what is causing the 404 NOT FOUND error. Once we learn how to idetify a cause for a problem we woulld be so much better equiped to solve potentially solve the problem.

Kind regards,

Issues with Enterprise Wiki Sites unavailable when create Intranet Team Site


I have created Enterprise Wiki Sites and have created an Extranet Team Site and was able to create an Enterprise Wiki Site as well with it but for some reason I do not have the ability or option to create an Enterprise Wiki Site or even page when I have a Team Site on an Intranet.  I have turned on all of the publishing features but the only wiki item available to me is the wiki library.  

I'm assuming I must have to activate or deactivate some other feature but I have no idea which one.

Some users are unable to access my intranet site with windows authentication


Hi All

I have an intranet site that i set up to windows authentication. It works fine most of the time but some departments wont be able to access the site and will be asked to enter user name and password.
I checked their Active Directory account and the only difference i could see was that the  organizational unit parameter was different than the rest of the users. But im puzzled on what i can do to fix it and have them accessing the application.

Any ideas?
