Are you talking about web pages on a LAN?
Try typing in the IP adress of the computer.

Ie, to view a page on 10.11.0.1 do:

http://10.11.0.1/

That should work :)

Thanks for the help...That was the problem because the servers are running windows so it was a domain name error but ips for the lan web pages worked
