RE: HTTP request working via hostname but not via IP address

Check you get a forward and reverse DNS lookup that match.

Sometimes you can get the hostname return the correct IP, but the IP
resolves to the wrong address.

Subject: Re: HTTP request working via hostname but not via IP address

Hey Javier,

The IP i'm trying to reach IS one of two IPs which correspond to a
virtual adress, but this is on an internal network, so the IP I am
aiming for is definitely not virtual.
Any other possibilities?

Cheers
Arjun

hello arjun

check if the website is a virtual website...most probably it is and
that is the reason you can only get at it with the hostname and not
the IP address...

 Hi all,

 I have a pretty basic sort of problem. While sending an HTTP request
to a machine using a VBScript, when I mention the hostname in the URL,
the request goes through smoothly. However, when I mention the IP
address explicitly, the request does not go through. I have confirmed
he IP address multiple times to make sure the error is not a typo.

If the machine name had not been accessible, I would have concluded
that the DNS query was the problem. But with the hostname working and
the IP not working I am stumped.

Any ideas?

Cheers

Arjun
