I'm using VirtualBox. I had two Windows Server 2003 PCs (SRV1 and SRV2), one for DNS(SRV1) and one as a webserver (IIS)(SRV2).

I put some HTML page under the default website. But when browsing I'm not getting the exact page.

  • I configured DNS correctly – it is resolving the name correctly.
  • I changed the network adapter to bridged mode
  • I can ping each other with the IP address but can't ping the website (when I ping like ping, I'm not getting the webpage (
  • I'm not using a public address, just a simple private address.

To be clearer, the webpage resides in SRV1 and there is a DNS entry in my DNS server (SRV1) which points to SRV1. SRV1's(DNS) IP address is and SRV2(webserver) is
