i have encountered a really strange issue. i have created a new web application and site collection with a custom host header (intranet.contoso.ulo).
i followed the steps outline by this guide: http://thuansoldier.net/?p=1323
- Disabled loop back checking
- Added to the host file
- Add entry to dns
- Configure host header for a Web application in IIS under Edit Site Bindings
- Configure alternate access mappings
- Restarted IIS
- flush dns
- ping the site using command prompt with the host header intranet.contoso.ulo and get a response
i was only enable to access the site if i click on the central admin icon in my sharepoint windows 2012 server and then open a new tab to access the site. if i open a new IE and try to access the site, i will get a page can't be displayed. the web application is created on port 80. is it a problem with the port?
