Live Mesh won’t sync Microsoft Expression Web “site”?

I have work on multiple Windows devices. I’ve found Windows Live Mesh to be the best tool to keep files synced between these machines. The key advantage it has over other similar tools like Dropbox is that it can sync solely over p2p.

I was consistently getting a “Failed to Connect: Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at localhost:<port>.” error. Little bit of Goolge pointed me to several posts suggesting that I turn off IPV6 on my network adapter.

I know a better way to fix this (fingers crossed). Continue reading “Getting ASP.NET Development Server (WebDev.WebServer.exe) to work on Vista”
