ASP.NET (C#) Question

IIS - can't access page by ip address instead of localhost

I'm trying to publish

application and test it locally. I have to provide installation folder and update location with an IP adress, unless I won't be able to install it (because
is translated into computer name and it's not accessible). The problem is, that on my IIS I can access my page only by using
in address.

http://localhost:9995/publish/Publish.htm <-- working <-- not working (my IP address)
http://my_pc_name:9995/publish/Publish.htm <-- not working <-- even that is not working

I'm using
Windows 7
Visual Studio 2012
IIS Express 8.0
, but I tried the same on
Visual Studio 2010
and it's
ASP.NET server
and still failed. I have my firewall turned off.

Do you have any ides what can be wrong? I would be very thankful for any help.

The IIS is a multi web site server. The way is distinct the site is by the host header name. So you need to setup that on your web site.

Here is the steps that you need to follow:
