I am trying to make WSS3 accessible on a new server. Currently it resides on a Win2003 SBS server. I have migrated to a Win2008 R2 server, but I am having difficulty accessing the site outside the local machine.
The old server makes SharePoint available on
http://sharepoint:800. I would like the new server to expose it at the same address, because I have ~10 InfoPath forms programmed to point at this address. (Both are in the same AD domain)
I have already disabled the sharepoint sites in IIS on the old server and configured host headers for
*:800 on the new server. I have also setup alternate access mappings.
At this point I can access sharepoint on the new server's ip address, but on port 80 instead of 800 (
http://sharepoint.company.com and various permutations of those with different port numbers, don't work.
Even the new server's hostname doesn't work - either or port 80 or 800.
At this point I am starting to run out of ideas. I am relatively new at server administration, so I would appreciate some advice to help me solve this problem.
