It was working fine few days back, but suddenly my local environment ends up with below error. I have tried installing new instances of sitecore as well but no luck.

+Adding Windows Network Diagnostics troubleshooting Report

The device or resource (sitecore82) is not set up to accept connections on port "The World Wide Web service (HTTP)".

Url: http://sc82local/sitecore/login

  • Hi, can you please check the logs and share more detailed information? Also, check IIS and ensure it is up and running, as well as Application Pools. Feb 24 '20 at 14:16
  • Hi @ViniciusDeschamps, there are no entries in logs. Seems the request is not at all hitting the website. The site and App pool are up and running. Feb 24 '20 at 14:41
  • looks like there some socket error on your computer. try by reset windsock. run this cmd - netsh winsock reset Feb 24 '20 at 16:06
  • @MahendraShekhawat, tried the suggested command but still the same issue. The problem is happening if I install a new instance of sitecore as well Feb 24 '20 at 16:11
  • @ManideepYechuri: if you execute ping sc82local in a Command Prompt window, is the domain resolving to your local IP ( Feb 24 '20 at 16:54

I am able to resolve the issue by executing below commands

netsh http delete iplisten ipaddress=aa.bb.cc.dd (where aa.bb.cc.dd is the IP address that we have to remmove)

netsh http add iplisten ipaddress=



The request is probably not hitting your sitecore site. I would probably -

  • restart IIS
  • Clean all application pools
  • check hosts file if it contains entry with which the website is being accessed
  • check binding on the website if the hostname is correctly mapped to the site
  • check site definitions in the website if the hostname gets resolved to a valid sitecore site or not.
  • I tried all the above options and everything looks good 1. Restarted IIS and verified 2. Recycled all available Application pools 3. Entry is there in hosts file 4. No other bindings as of now except the default one 5. Site definition is also fine I am testing on a plain instance without any modifications done on top of that instance. Feb 25 '20 at 10:01
