I’ve found a couple of things to look for:

Check for URLScan or any other http filtering tools for “security” that my be blocking the http strings. – including proxy

Ensure the anonymous access is enabled

Check the status of your IUSR account (default for anonymous access)- you might need to reset the password

You might also need to promote the IUSR, or another user to alleviate permission issue that may be passed down by AD.

Ensure no other web server is running on same server

type this into IE browser:

If you get back anything other than the 404 Page not found, (a server time stamp) then all is well

If that fails, replace the localhost portion with the actual server IP
Behavior should be same as above
If prompted for login, then its permission issue.
