You are accessing the page from an external system so the host will NOT be localhost as that is the local machine.

The address for the clients will be:

http://<server name here>/MEH/frmlogin.aspx

e.g. If the server is named web01:


localhost is how you can make the system talk to its own local services. If you use 'localhost' on another system then it will talk to itself too. This is a defacto ISO standard called the loopback protocol and is why you have an extra network device named lo on your system.

Can you help with this problem?
