I have xp pro using IIS 5.1. I already have a site that I develop on my computer that I can access through http://localhost/ but what I need to do is add another site to access. I know I could just make a subdirectory for the new site but I'm sure there is another way to do it. I'm thinking that I would need to add a site to IIS, edit my host file to point www.newsite.com to 127.0.0.1, then set up IIS to accept that domain. But I don't know how to setup IIS to do this.... I tried looking through technet... but I just got irritated.. now I'm here.

Thanks in advanced.... :thumbsup:

This is good information but doesn't answer my question/problem. My question/problem is this, can I access a site on my pc by using IIS 5.1 and a hosts file redirect?
