IIS website with windows authentication does not run on local Windows 10 machine

The domain www.iiswebsite.com is not a valid domain. It does not exist and Chrome does not know how to get to the domain.

Solution (2 options)

  1. Use a valid domain that points to the IP of the server where your site is hosted.
  2. Add a host entry for the domain www.iiswebsite.com in your computer’s host file that points the the IP of the IIS server where your site is hosted
