This IIS related error could arise if you are trying to access a local site and you are using proxy. The proxy server directs all request to the Server it is configured again. To resolve this error you have to add exception for local address. In FireFox, go to Options > Advance > Network TAB > Connection Setting. In the bottom add the address you don’t want to use proxy for. If the error is proxy related, it should go away.
Another tip: If you are using a domain address (e.g. local.mytestsite), make sure you add entry to local host.
