you should be using the loopback address ( or another

XSP and XSP2 are both stand-alone web servers that serve ASP.NET-based
pages and should only be used for testing applications.  It is not
intended to be a production web server.

Tomcat is an HTTP server written in pure Java and supports Java Server
Pages and various other Java web technologies.  There may be an
ASP.NET module for it but I doubt it.

Apache is a web server written in C and supports ASP.NET applications
through a module, mod_mono.  This is the way to go for production web
