Website not accessible when user doesn’t have admin rights [closed]

I have two websites hosted on a computer with Windows 7. One is hosted on IIS 7 and the other is hosted on Apache Tomcat 7. These websites are accessible from other machines on the network. If I lose my admin rights, they become inaccessible and are accessible only from localhost. What could be the issue behind it?


Windows 7 is not a server operating system. All bets are off when you use a desktop OS to run services. You are highly advised to use Windows Server or a Linux distribution instead. Unfortunately debugging service problems on Windows 7 or any other desktop-oriented operating system is entirely pointless, as it will be unstable (as you can see), unsupported by all vendors, and difficult if not impossible to find community help.
