We have put a web server in place on a network, it was recently moved from a testing environment in another subnet to a different office. Now that we have the server in place, we can access it via its internal IP but cannot reach it on the assigned external IP. I am not sure what to do as normally, once you allow port 80 and 443 through and map the external IP to the internal you are typically up and running.
I even went so far as to disable the Firewall on the IIS server running server 2008. I can access the site on its internal ip on both HTTP and SSL. The Admin guy tells me the firewall has the proper settings in place but I do not have enough access to confirm. My usual logic tells me that if I can access it inside, as long as the firewall/router is configured correctly I should be able to get access outside the network as well.
This is server 2008 and not R2. I know that Windows 2008 can differentiate traffic from local and external nets in the firewall, but I figured that would have been bypassed by disabling windows firewall. My eyes keep going to the firewall but I want to make sure that I am not missing anything.
Is there anything other than what I mentioned that I should be checking? I am at a loss
