We installed arcgis server 10.1 on its own server. On the GIS server I am able to connect to the server services through catalog. But, when I go to my local computer and try to connect to the server "http: servername:6080/arcgis" I get a error message: Error Proxy server got bad address from remote server (verify that server is running).
How will I be able to resolve this.
