For some reason our SharePoint server rejects local requests with
503 Service Unavailable. Everything works fine when a user browses a site (e.g. http://spserver/) from another machine in the network. However, if the same user logs in to the server (RDP) and attempts to browse the same site from within the server they either:
- Continuously get the login prompt (if using the FQDN e.g. http://spserver/)
- Get a
503 Service Unavailableerror (if using http://localhost/)
NOTE: The password is fine and the application pools are running fine (since users can connect remotely)
Any ideas please?
