I can access my application with no problems via the IP; however, when I try to access this via the domain I come up with the very common "Server Error in '/' Application. The resource cannot be found." which leads me to think something is wrong with my web.config, but seeing as I can get to the resource fine via the IP I am starting to think something else is going on with IIS. Suggestions?

Which version of IIS? – pk. May 10 '12 at 19:26
Running IIS version 7.5 on windows 2008 r2 – mtnwk May 10 '12 at 19:38
can you modify the web.config value customErrors? – JohnThePro May 10 '12 at 21:25
so it turns out I just needed a refresh of the DNS for this thing to work. – mtnwk May 10 '12 at 23:06

You need to check your IIS logs to find out which HTTP status code is actually being thrown.
