I have set up a website on IIS 7.0. Does anyone know why I would not be able to access the site outside of my local network? I have pointed a .com address to my ip address and it works fine on the host computer. However, I can't get it to work on any outside computers.
It could be a series of things as listed in the comments. For starters I would look at the IP address. Make sure you are using your networks external IP address instead of the Internal IP address. Then you would need to access the website on a connection that is outside the network to see you are successful. Also look into redirect rules. If you created the website as www.domainname.com, and you are typing domainname.com in your URL address box, then it will not redirect to www.domainname.com. A redirect is required in order to use just the route of the address within the URL. Lastly, you would need to look at the firewall rules. Check to see if the port you are setting the website up on is allowed through the firewall.
