Using Web Application Stress tool on local web-apps

If you try using the Web Application Stress tool to test pages on a locally hosted web-app, then you will find that the page that the recorder spawns in your browser, does not work.

I found that you need to add a period at the end of localhost to make it work.

eg: http://localhost./connectionTestWebsite/

you can also use your computer name instead of localhost. This issue is similar to why Fiddler does not work when you try using localhost in the address (which I blogged about in Fiddler Tips & Tricks)
