  • Physical Path - The physical directory of the web application or site to serve.
  • Virtual Path - The virtual path upon which to root the application.
  • Host Name - The host name to use in place of 'localhost'. This value must be a valid DNS host name or be present in the local hosts file. You may check 'Add hosts entry' to add such an entry to the hosts file for the duration of the hosting session. Adding a hosts entry requires elevated permissions, both upon adding and again upon removal and may result in UAC dialogs on Vista, Windows 7 and Server 2008.
  • Add Host Entry - You may check 'Add hosts entry' to add such an entry to the hosts file for the duration of the hosting session. Adding a hosts entry requires elevated permissions, both upon adding and again upon removal.
  • Idle TimeOut - The amount of time, in milliseconds, to remain idle, i.e. no requests, before stopping the server. 0 = no timeout.
  • IP Address - The IP address upon which to host the server.
    • Loopback - Host the server on the loopback IP (127.0.0.1) This is the default behavior. Note: If you need to serve WCF this is the only IP that will work.
    • Any - Host the server on all IP address at the specified port.
    • Specific - explicitly specify the IP address upon which to host the server. Can be any valid IP address.
    • Use IPV6 - use the IPV6 version of Loopback or Any. Does not apply to Specific.
  • Port - The port upon which to host the server.
    • Specific - Explicitly specify port. If port is in use, an error will be reported and server will not start.
    • Range - Performs a port scan in the given range and uses the first available port.
