Thanks for responding. Sorry, I'm a real neubie with these kinds of boards, but will do as you suggest.

- I'm using WinXP SP2
- no Apache2Triad installed (or other web servers)
- I had uninstalled Skype a few weeks ago, long before I installed Uniform Server
- I have laplink installed (file transfer sw), shareaza, and azureus. None of them use port 80
- those other addresses arent working either
- the W drive looked like it showed up after i started start.bat at the command line console (cmd.exe) , but when I used the "dir" command to look around the W drive I couldn't, because W in fact did not exist. I couldnt find W: from windows explorer either.


What OS are you using, and please, next time, start your own topic so we can know who is who and what help we give...

Also, did you also install Apache2Triad?

And do you have Skype Installed?

Or anything using Port 80?

The address hosuld also be http://localhost

Is the W:/ drive also created?

I have the same problem. I downloaded & unzipped it to a folder.. pressed the start.bat file, and the following occurs (see below the ==== lines):

Also, this is a fairly clean install of Windows XP with SP2.
No virus scanner installed
no firewall

but behind a rounter. but Port forwarding for HTTP port is not being used

So, any ideas on how to get the server to work?

Thanks in advance,


1) The dos window says:

The server is working on the disk w:\ [http/]


2) The IE 6 window says:

address bar: W:\home\admin\WWW\redirect.html

I unzipped all the files and didn't move anything, and I just tried the http://localhost/a thing and it's the same as before. I get a 580 error page or a website not responding page after the redirect page, which by the way doesn't redirct. I just click the back to main and...

I'm using windows xp with a cable modem and I've tried it with the Norton Firewall off as well.
