I have a site on port 8080, and extended the site to port 80. Then I added an alternate access mapping to the new url on port 80. I have also created a new host file entry and added the host entry name to the host header configuration in IIS for the extended web app.
If I browse to the site on port 8080, I can access the site with no problems. I can also access the site on port 80 with no problems.
When I try to access the site using the newly created host entry, I get a error that the page cannot be displayed.
