on my web-server: I am able to access this link
it shows my services exposed.

but if I am using the same link with servername

i am prompted for username & password thrice, and the IE remains blank, no errors, no result. What could be possibly wrong? The eventviewers in web-server or data-server do not show anything either.

    This can be happen when you are accessing the Link on PC which is not in Domain in which the WEB SERVER Exists.

    Thanks for the reply, Ravi.

    I am trying to access both the links on the same machine (which itself is the WEB-Server). Thats how the localhost link works. But as soon as 'localhost' in the link is changed to 'machinename' - i have the problem.

    The difference between localhost and servername is that when you use servername it actually connects through the network adapter - meaning that any firewalls or other things would come into play.
    localhost bypasses this - so you might want to check these things.

    Check for two NAV services authentication.
    (In Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Services)

    Assign proper account user id and password.
