I have a sharepoint machine called monkeyface in our domain. If I go to any browser and type in http://monkeyface/ I get the website as planned.

I have a dev site on port 1000. If I open http://monkeyface:1000/ on any machine other than monkeyface, I do not get a website.

I have also tried the full machine name, and no luck.

Where do I start?

Not sure, but it sounds like a port is blocked. Do you have an internal firewall that could be stopping traffic on port 1000? – Ryan Sep 29 '12 at 21:32
good call. let me check. – Wesley Sep 29 '12 at 22:04
nope :( Tried completely disabling windows and hardware firewall – Wesley Sep 29 '12 at 22:08
also, cannout ping monkeyface:1000 – Wesley Sep 29 '12 at 22:08
Can you telnet to monkeyface on port 1000? If you can't do that, then the port is blocked somewhere along the way. – MaQleod Sep 29 '12 at 22:20

It sounds like you have a case of a firewall port blocking. Check the firewall on the server to make sure port 1000 is open. Since it is not a port that is normally used, it is probably blocked by default.
