    Question Localhost:88 -> local:88

    In IIS, I've created a new website at port 88.

    In Internet Explorer only, if I type

    localhost:88

    in the address bar, this gets converted to

    local:88

    Which is basically nothing. On the other hand, if I complete it with the protocol like so:

    http://localhost:88

    It opens the page fine.

    Why does the 'localhost' change to 'local' when the http protocol is not specified?

    Re: Localhost:88 -> local:88

    I have no idea. I assume that is one of IE's handy features, setting 127.0.0.1 -> local in the hosts file makes no difference either. My guess is, is that it is some kind of scheme, like http:// and file:///

    local:///

    If you have front page installed, maybe appending the name of one of your webs to the end will reveal its purpose.

    Re: Localhost:88 -> local:88

    Do you have frontpage installed?

    I did a search on this, and have found nothing on google.

    Did you try this yourself?

    I would not install Fornypage if you paid me. But I did do a google search and found this:

    It appears those jolly nice people at MS cannot explain it too.

    %windir%\system32\drivers\etc\protocol

    p.s: you need admin priviledges to edit it and knowledge of how to open ASCII text files
