Cannot open "ACT! Premium 2008 for web in internet explorer

I am having issues with Act! premium 2008 for Web. I was able to install the software and the SQL database successfully on a windows 2003 server.

 

I was successfully able to install the internet synchronization service on the same server.

 

When I open up Act Premium and go to Tools --> Website administration

 and test the connection of ACT! with web server, then It gives me an error that says - "ACT was not able to connect to your web server. Invalid URI: a port was expected, instead there was a colon present"

 

FYI: I already have IIS V6.0 installed and my default FTP Site and website are configured on my web server and works fine. When Act! for Web and Internet Sync was installed, I found entries for ACT! listed in the "websites" section of IIS. (it also includes the listing for APFW)

 

FYI:

 

here's my FTP Site:

 

ftp://64.33.160.199 (can be opened in windows explorer)

 

here's my default website in IIS:

 

http://64.33.160.199

 

(both of them works just fine. Please Try it out by yourself to verify)

 

So, to test if ACT! for web works in Internet explorer, if I type

 

http://64.33.160.199/APFW

 

ACT!'s console should open up in IE. Instead, it leads me to a blank page.

 

To override all the port forwarding issues, even tried to open Act! in IE on the server itself using the server's internal IP Address:

 

http://192.168.111.103/APFW

 

but this did not work as well.

 

It seems that I am missing a step here. Could you please let me know what I am missing or doing wrong here ?

I highly appreciate your help

 

Thanks
