My issue is the title itself.
I am using IIS 7 and hosted an MVC 4 website which uses Windows Authentication (Windows Domain) for authenticating users.
I can access the site from browser
using localhost ( from the server itself with admin previleaged user)
I need to access the site using the computer name
My url will be
But while trying to access using the above url, I am getting a Login box and I entered a valid
user ID and Password, but it says that you are not authorized to access.
I tried using the IP, I am getting the Login Box , I tried using the same userID and password. Then i can browse the website.
I don't think its not an issue with DNS , because while giving the ComputerName, it identifies the server and prompting me with a login box. But it fails to validate the user
Whether my observation is correct ?
Do I need to add any thing for achieving this ?
1) Try ping machinename.fullyQualifiedDomainname to make sure it returns the correct IP first.
if the IP is correct, then
2) Check your IIS entry. To make sure machinename.fullyQualifiedDomainname is the IIS Binding.
