No, installing everything when you install Portal works fine. Are you just
getting a 404 error. Make sure and check the logs and event viewer for hints
as to what may be going on.

I am getting "page cannot be displayed" error when i open the portal  home page.

In the event viewer i got this error

The DNS server  could not open socket for address
Verify that this is a valid IP address for the server computer. If it is NOT
valid use the Interfaces dialog under Server Properties in the DNS Manager to
remove it from the list of IP interfaces. Then stop and restart the DNS server.
(If this was the only IP interface on this machine and the DNS server may not
have started as a result of this error. In that case remove the DNS\Parmeters\
ListenAddress value in the services section of the registry and restart.)

If this is a valid IP address for this machine, make sure that no other
application (e.g. another DNS server) is running that would attempt to use the
DNS port.

so what should i do next.
