You will need to configure your WAN firewall to allow port 81 inbound from the outside, same as has been done with port 3381 for remote desktop.

can I configure port 3381 for IIS so that have not to do this whole process? – Azhar May 7 '12 at 7:18
Well, you'd mess up your Remote desktop ability, and would have to disable that or change its port first. But yes, in theory you could adjust IIS to listen on port 3381 for the website. – TheCleaner May 7 '12 at 13:21
Thanks I set configured it to 81 ... and working perfectly. – Azhar May 7 '12 at 13:37
