Sounds like the pass directive in your http configuration file.  

If you have the configuration file set up correctly, you should be able
to use the system name as the url.  you need something like "    pass
/*     /www/* " in your configuration file where "/www"
is in this case the directory in the root folder where the html source
resides.  This may not be the only thing, the configuration is imho a
little arbitrary.

You can get to the configuration file with wrkhttpcfg.  You might want
to check out the IBM http server web site
which has a lot more information including all the manuals.
