I wrote a css file in my application which is working properly when I type localhost in the browser but when I type the ip address of that same machine the .css file is not working.

Is there any permission related issue?

Seems to be permission issue. Allow permission in web.config for the css folder.

I removed the phrase "need help as soon as possible". This is a forum run by volunteers in their own time. Everybody has urgency, but people will reply whenever they have time. Given that, I believe there are fair amount of users living in different time zones so the answers will be quick unless your question is too vague

Is your application using forms-based authentication? If that the case, you need to apply the <location> tag to the Web.config file to configure access to a specific file and folder. For instance,

<location path="yourCSSFolderPath">
				<allow users="*"/>
