    Default Localhost is not working

    I have check and recheck a dozen times. I cannot see the index page when view from the Internet browser. As http://localhost:8080 or http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8080
    The message i get : "Your are not authorized to view this page."
    and at the end of the page is error http 403 forbidden Internet explorer.
    Not even when I run it from the server itself.
    I am signed in as administrator. I can write and delete every were.
    If I click the pages itself, they display in the browser.

    Scenario:
    I have followed the instructions from http://www.alphasoftware.com/documentation/afas_setup/

    Server is set with windows 2003 server enterprise
    Ram 1 gig drive 120 gig (this is temp for testing only)
    All working fine.
    Router is set to use 8080 with forward settings to the internal ip. address of the server
    I connect to the Internet ok. Networking with terminals is ok.
    The alpha application server is licensed and activated.
    IIS is eliminated.
    I have 2 simple pages created under Alpha: index.htm and index.a5w, placed in the c:\A5webroot of the server

    Please tell me what else am I missing?
    Where else I should look?

    It seems that instructions do not have/mention a check box called
    Enable security frame work." in the front page of the server setup.
    Rechecking every step, I did uncheck that box and after a rebooting, I get to see the index page.

    I am sure this box will be very important later, I will read more about.

    Hi Mike,

    Those instructions are for A5v7. So that is why you had the struggle. I am not sure where a similar document for A5v9 would be found. Good catch though!
